Co-management Amazon Peru


01/13 - 06/17


This project is part of

The effects of climate change and the advanced deforestation in the Amazon region pose a threat to the livelihood of the local population and biodiversity. Protection efforts in communal reserves have had little success to date because the indigenous communities were not involved in the protection measures. The project’s objective is to further develop the co-management approach and implement it in selected communal reserves for indigenous communities. To achieve this objective, there will be interventions in four areas: 1. Developing co-management concepts and capacities; 2. Protecting biodiversity and forests; 3. Sustainable use; 4. Information and knowledge management.
