U.S. – CUBA – BOLIVIA – NEEM Agro Eco Pueblo delegation

DECEMBER 11th – 19th 2015  Havana – Trinidad – Cienfuegos – Matanzas – Havana and Artemisa – Agroecology, Sustainable community and Eco Pueblos multinational delegation. NEEM is pleased to convene delegates from the U.S., Cuba and Bolivia on Agro Eco Pueblo and self sustaining community. NEEM entered into an agreement in Sacaba, Bolivia for the purpose of creating 3 Eco Pueblos and the multinational cooperative. We are meeting in Cuba to finalize the collaborative and secure the three knowledge exchange projects that contribute to the greater good.

July 17th - As a cooperative we developed signed and sealed a conceptual document for Eco Pueblos that allowed us to leverage 75 Hectares (180 acres) in Sacaba, Cochabamba Bolivia. We used the bottom up community support, agreement and committed land to leverage the project funding. The Bolivian Senate has agreed to a $100 million USD budget in support of the project that includes International private investment.
December 11th – 19th NEEM leads a U.S., Bolivian, Cuba delegation including diplomats from Bolivia that will meet in Havana and develop an Eco Pueblos collaboration, based on the Cuban model, a similar agreement with a Cuban land commitment of 97 hectares (239 acres) with the target location identified. NEEM will seek on a smaller land scale a version of Eco Pueblos in Durham, North Carolina USA. We have a potential of 60 acres in Durham in a public/private partnership.
All three projects will behave as a cooperative, each autonomos but in support of project concept, goals, sustainable community development and establishment of the Eco Pueblos model with Agro ecological principals as the foundation.

“We are amazed at what was achieved in Bolivia and proud of that commitment to Eco Pueblos there. With the land, support, agreement and $100 million in funding is serious leverage for pre-investment platform in Cuba now and likewise in Durham at the NEEM land.” The possibility is there like opportunity. We did not miss opportunity in Bolivia, do not intend to in Cuba or in Durham.” JAE
