PERU-Hub staff on first exploratory trip to Tarapoto


As part of the PERU-Hub implementation work in San Martin, a project team traveled to Tarapoto, capital of the region, to visit the Pucayacu Regional Development Institute (IRD Pucayacu), whose headquarters have been destined for the creation of a research center. 

The exploratory team, made up by Melisa Prudencio, general management assistant, Robert Ortega, administration assistant and Maria Luisa Cisneros, budget specialist, visited the IRD Pucayacu nursery, where they learned about seedling production and agro-silvopastoral systems. In addition, they inspected the areas of the IRD where the future PERU-Hub food processing plant will be located.

The PERU-Hub representatives also had contact with the resident engineers of the area and gathered information that will be useful for the implementation of the project in its first year of execution.
