Abstract
In Mexico, the Special Program for Food Security (PESA) is one of the instruments concerned with poverty, focusing on food security. In the southeast of Zacatecas, Campus S.L.P. of Colegio de Postgraduados, created the Agency for Rural Development AGRORURAL A.C. (ADR), enabling a group of associate technicians to facilitate development processes in communities of high and very high margination. The first year (2005-2006), the PESA program was implemented in the region, including 30 communities of seven municipalities; diagnoses of the whole zone, and for each of the communities were made. The second year, ADR elaborated and started the implementation of Regional Intervention Strategy (EIR), whose fundamental objective was to develop the capacities of the regional population and establishing the guidelines to promote development processes in the communities. Ten Centers of Communitarian Transference of Technology (CECOTTEC) were established, with two modular projects - traspatio and milpa (backyard and cropland) ¿ both with innovative subsystems to achieve food security. At present, the modules are being implemented and the formal training process of the groups, participant in PESA, has been initiated.
