Abstract: "One of the main problems of small rural farming units is to establish and implement a management model to exploit, take advantage of its potential and boost its productive development. The research which was very thorough as it included cross-section, exploratory-descriptive, non-experimental and prospective methods was carried on between 2008 and 2011 with the contribution of three sectors so as to establish the validity of the project: public sector (regional governments: La Libertad and Lambayeque), private sector (United Nations Industrial Development Organization--UNIDO Explort Consortia) and academic sector (Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos). The methodology, which combines several different research tools such as: observation, surveys, interviews, questionnaires and field work that contribute to obtain a broad view of the Viru valley (located on the north coast of Peru), starts by identifying its problems and goes on to work out its lines of development. The results and the consensus of the main representatives of the area validate the proposed partnership management model for the development of small rural farming units, with the solid bases of integration, competitiveness and sustainable development. This model proposes the development of an autonomous entity and the integration of the three sectors (public, private and academic) so as to make sure the use of resources in a sustainable and competitive way based on the development of agricultural practices, water resources, park technology, non-traditional activities (tourism and aquaculture) and government public policies. The contributions of the research are consolidated into a replicable model and the organization of partnership workshops on the Peruvian coast: San Jose and Olmos."
