Institutional Teams


Casa campesina

The Casa Campesina team provides a permanent multicultural space for animation, assistance, accompaniment, and logistical and institutional support to rural communities. This support aims to strengthen their autonomy and enhance their negotiation and proposal formulation capacities. Another key objective of this team is to foster dialogue and intercultural encounters, generating open and harmonious exchanges of knowledge. This contributes to increased leadership and protagonism among the women and men of the Andean and Amazonian social organizations in the south.


The primary goal is to promote and facilitate strategic communication processes that position the institutional profile within the macro-regional development agenda for the south, engaging in various networks and platforms. Our efforts enhance the advocacy capabilities of our staff and strategic allies and support institutional territorial dynamics through the design and application of methodologies, technologies, and communication tools.


This team manages the institution’s financial and budgetary information, ensuring adherence to policies, standards, procedures, and activities across institutional teams. Our actions are aimed at fostering and internalizing the organizational culture by formulating and implementing protocols and manuals, thus promoting commitment, innovation, transparency, integration, and the efficient use of human potential.

Programming, Monitoring, and Evaluation

This function involves generating and managing mechanisms and computer tools for information collection, facilitating the monitoring and evaluation of institutional activities. The goal is to enhance the efficiency, effectiveness, transparency, equity, and impact of the institution’s involvement across various territories.

Colegio andino

Colegio Andino focuses on promoting training initiatives, action-participatory research, reflection, debate, exchange, and the confluence of knowledge. It also emphasizes the systematization and dissemination of results as contributions to knowledge management from a decolonial perspective and “Buen Vivir.” This effort links local Andean and Amazonian dynamics with global epistemological processes as part of an intercultural dialogue, addressing the challenges of the climate crisis and counter-hegemonic actions. The aim is to provide consistent evidence for advocacy in generating transformative processes within the development agenda for the Southern macro-region.

Editorial Line

The main purpose of this team is to disseminate and democratize the Andean-Amazonian reality in all its dimensions through publications. This includes scientific and social practices, as well as traditional knowledge, to promote dialogue and the construction of “Buen Vivir” from a standpoint of diversity and respect.

Revista andina

Revista Andina is an academic publication specializing in social sciences, aiming to disseminate original articles on a broad range of Andean and Amazonian subjects, particularly anthropology, history, archaeology, linguistics, ethnohistory, and literature. It serves as a multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and critical platform that unites various schools of research and contemporary thought focused on human society, nature, and the Andean-Amazonian world.

“Guido Delrán Cousy" Library

Since 1974, this library has supported generations of researchers studying the cultures of the Andean and Amazonian territories of southern Peru. The CBC library boasts valuable collections that aid in understanding the social and cultural history of Cusco and envisioning the region’s future.

Fototeca andina

Since its inception, the Andean Photo Library has been committed to preserving over thirty thousand black and white images from significant photographers of the so-called “Escuela Cusqueña de Fotografía” from the first half of the twentieth century. These images provide an authentic visual testimony of the history, culture, and daily life in the Peruvian Andean south. Since 2017, a large permanent exhibition room named “César Meza” honors the donation of his prolific work to our institution.
