This case study focuses on the good practices and innovative elements of a project to address food insecurity among Miskitu and Mayagna communities in north-eastern Nicaragua, implemented by Nicaraguan NGO, Acción Médica Cristiana (AMC) and funded by Oxfam and other international donors.
While the principal objective of the project was to increase food security, an intercultural approach to the development of capacities for climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction was also piloted, based on the concept of inter-culturality as “the interaction of diverse cultures(1) and the possibility of generating shared cultural expressions through dialogue and mutual respect”.(2)
The reflections presented in this case study are derived from analysis of project documentation, interviews with key staff of Oxfam and AMC, and dialogue with project beneficiaries, community leaders .
