The "Eco-papas" project, implemented in the province of Carchi, Ecuador, followed a broad approach: reintroducing biological and ecological farming techniques that decrease the importance of chemical inputs and moving towards a more stable and sustainable agroecosystem. Its guiding principle was the notion that healthy, living soils provide a stable base from which other adjustments and improvements to the production system can be made and managed. Its most interesting result was the active involvement of local farmers.
