CONVEAGRO was founded in 1994 as representative space where producers’ associations, civil society organizations and academics with an interest on agrarian issues could share and debate their concerns on agrarian and agrarian-related issues. CONVEAGRO is therefore a pluralistic forum for analysis, technical evaluation and democratic consultation on land and agrarian issues, which has no political affiliation or trade union functions. CONVEAGRO promotes the strengthening of rural institutions, agricultural unions and agricultural producers’ associations, as key elements for the development of the rural sector. As of 2017, CONVEAGRO is a democratic and pluralistic coordination forum, which is highly representative of producers’ associations as well as of other agrarian-related institutions with strong presence at both national and sub-national levels. It is a forum with consolidated positioning and recognition by national and international actors for its capacity to put forward proposals. It is a representative space that proactively defends the interests of rural Peru, and that promotes an agrarian development that is environmental friendly, sustainable, and socially inclusive. Finally, CONVEAGRO contributes to the overall development of the country, to the increase of employment opportunities, and to the amelioration of living standards of Peruvians, especially rural and peasant families.
In a decade, CONVEAGRO has become a consolidated forum with a pluralistic composition, gender-balanced and highly representative of the institutions related to agrarian-issues. In a decade, it has acquired a high capacity to put forward innovative, efficient and competitive proposals that benefit the rural sector. In a decade, it has come to promote the building of the capacities of its leaders, fostering gender equality and a continuous renovation of its leadership.

In a decade, it has been able to consolidate an information system that allows for better communication and info sharing/accessing for its affiliates.
