Information is posted here on the work of ARADO International, a nonprofit organization that was working in rural communities near Lake Titicaca from 1990 to 2004. ARADO’s work drew from a unique body of detailed research data collected by Dr. Roland Bergman and John Kusner and aimed to find practical solutions to improving rural livelihoods in one of the world’s most challenging agricultural landscapes.

ARADO International is no longer active and data is posted here for the interest of researchers and local communities.
