On September 27th, 2023, the FOLUR Project, together with the Governor's Office of Boquerón and the Municipality of Loma Plata in the Paraguayan Chaco, delivered materials and equipment to the 12 de Noviembre Committee of the town of Villa Urunde'y, District of Loma Plata, Department of Boquerón in the Paraguayan Chaco.

Boquerón is located in the Western Region of Paraguay, making it the largest department in the country, with an area of 91,669 km² but a population of only 61,000 inhabitants. It is part of the Paraguayan Chaco and includes areas of dry forest, open savannahs, and seasonally flooded wetlands.

The delivery consisted of equipment for the community vegetable garden of the 12 de Noviembre Committee, which is mainly made up of women and is characterized by being a population settled in a peri-urban area with scarce resources. In response to this situation, a community garden was implemented, applying appropriate technologies to maximize crop yields, generate healthy products, and conserve productive resources, mainly soil. This community initiative also seeks to be a learning space for the community so that they can later apply what they have learned on their farms or family properties.

The ICCF Food Systems, Land Use and Restoration Project (FOLUR) seeks to transform food production and land use systems in rural Paraguay to better integrate its productivity, enhance its ecosystem services, and conserve its resources and natural capital. Co-funded by the Global Environment Facility and civil society, FOLUR is led by the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development of the Republic of Paraguay (MADES) with the support of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP).
