Helping Conserve Peruvian Forests by Improved Environmental Management and Governance

The Environmental Management and Forest Governance Support Activity coordinates with national, regional and local actors to strengthen environmental management capacity and promote private investment in indigenous and other rural communities in the Peruvian Amazon.
The Peru Environmental Management and Forest Governance Support Activity is working to improve forest governance and environmental management, biodiversity conservation, and forest-based economic opportunities to support the U.S.-Peru Trade Promotion Agreement.
 
Chemonics, through a partnership with USAID, helps conserve sustainable tropical forest landscapes and increases forest-based job creation by implementing the trade agreement. The project achieves its objectives through strategic alliances with ministries, the Peruvian Forest Service, the U.S. Forest Service, the Peruvian Ministry of Environment, regional and local governments, and other partners to increase the environmental management capacity of public actors and attract private investment for expanded economic opportunities through environmental services and national climate change initiatives.
 
 
Activities address the most influential drivers of deforestation and forest degradation, including illegal logging, lack of forest governance, land use conversion, informal mining, and an economically under-competitive timber industry.
