The PECOLO project (Native Crops for Sustainable and Innovative Food
Futures in Peru and Colombia) was developed as a collaboration between
the University of Turku, Finland (UTU), the National Agrarian University
La Molina, Peru (UNALM) and the University El Bosque, Colombia (UEB).
The objective of the project is for higher education, research and
innovation environments to support the establishment and maintenance of
sustainable, innovative and profitable value chains for Andean native
food plant crops.

As part of its strategy, the project focused on transferring tools
and methods of future studies and foresight. A series of futures
workshops were conducted during the project. With the help of these
tools and methods, and through the participation of different interest
groups, a set of alternative future states for the Colombian agri-food
sector was developed and presented (publication one). Based on the
desirable scenario presented in the first publication, a road map and
action plan were then developed by the interest groups.

This publication presents the results of the last two workshops (3
and 4) of the project. Diverse categories of actors were involved in
these workshops, including participants from academia, civil society,
public entities and international organizations related to agri-food
systems with a significant role in Colombia.
