The Foundation for Anthropological Research and Ethno-development, Anthropologists of the Southern Andes (ASUR), is a private, non-profit social development organization working with indigenous communities in south-central Bolivia.

The defining characteristic of the projects undertaken by ASUR is that they are productive economic development projects derived from indigenous communities own cultural experience.

ASUR conceives of indigenous economic development as something inseparable from its cultural setting. We emphasise high-quality artisan production, based upon creations of traditional Andean communities, but without ignoring other productive possibilities.
