Lima, Peru

We have brought together three local governments in Lima – the municipalities of Carabayllo, Comas and San Juan de Miraflores – to create a community of learning, along with our NGO technical partners SUMBI, Alto Peru and Coordinadora de la Ciudad en Construcción (CCC). The aim is to promote a coordinated approach to integrating early childhood development into urban interventions and educational and social programmes.

Through a pilot project, we have begun to experiment with community engagement in informal neighbourhoods to encourage new uses of public space that promote family interactions, and to explore solutions to issues of mobility.
