Peru has a forest cover 73.3 million hectares, with the Amazon Rainforest, covering more than 60% of the country’s territory. The Peruvian Ministry of Environment (MINAM) estimates the country’s annual deforestation rate at approximately 0.15%, which is relatively low when compared to its South American neighbors. However, deforestation is considered the primary source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the country.

Peru submitted its Readiness Preparation Proposal (R-PP) to the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) in March 2011, and was accepted in early 2014, with grant agreement signed in June 2014.Peru later presented the final version of its investment plan under the Forest Investment Program (FIP), and was approved for an award of US$ 41.8 million.

    Chart Description

    The chart shows the REDD+ activities supported by the different donor institution types. The list of activities and definitions was drawn from broad agreement among REDD+ experts, including the civil society national partners collecting data across the initiative countries.

    It is important to note that the absence of support for an activity from a specific donor type does not constitute a lack of attention to the activity overall, since the activity could be well-funded through other donor types.

    In Peru, International NGOs and Donor Governments support all types REDD+ activities, while most other donor entities are focusing primarily on stakeholder engagement, institutional strengthening, and MRVs. 

    Stakeholder engagement: Funding aimed at improving participation of non-governmental stakeholders through the design, implementation, and/or monitoring phases of REDD+, and/or funding that promotes media outreach.

    Rights and tenure: Funding directed at addressing issues of rights and tenure – including clarifying land, property and carbon rights.

    MRV and reference levels: Funding aimed at improving the monitoring, reporting and/or verification of REDD+, including changes in forest cover, forest degradation, biodiversity, or social and governance levels. Funding to define or implement reference levels to measure emissions, co-benefits and governance in country.

    Safeguards: Funding aimed at identifying barriers to forest conservation and enabling social and environmental benefits.

    Policy and law analysis & development, REDD strategy development & advocacy: Funding aimed at promoting research, advocacy and outreach to policymakers.

    Institutional strengthening: Funding aimed at developing in-country public institutions, ministries, staffing capacity and resources for REDD+.

    Forest carbon project design: Funding aimed at developing project design documents (PDDs) and validation activities. This includes credited projects that go to the market and those that want REDD+ payments.

    Improved forest and land management to reduce deforestation and degradation (implementation): Funding supporting protected areas, sustainable forest management, and reforestation management activities – including enforcement and compliance.

    Carbon offsets and performance-based payments for improved forest and land management: Funding aimed at carbon offsets, direct payments, actual benefits sharing, and actual payments such as incentive and performance-based payments.

    Other: Funding aimed at REDD+ activities that do not fall within the broad categories listed. For example, funding that is listed as technical support.
