This book, pending its publication by the National University of Piura, in Peru, is part of a broader research project that proposed to unfold the potential role of the application of knowledge from different scientific disciplines as factors of sustainable, individual and social development, in the Sierra de Ayabaca.
In 2013, almost a decade ago, the National University of Piura received a long Report with the results of the different teams and disciplines that participated in the Project. Some of them have been appearing in Monographs, book chapters, scientific articles and conferences and communications in different congresses. However, the most elaborate core of the results obtained is collected in this volume on the intangible heritage of the Sierra de Ayabaca. The celebration of the Bicentennial of the Independence of Peru could have been an excellent framework to claim the contribution of this heritage to the sustainable development of the country.
