Plans and policies summary
The National Forest Conservation Program for the Mitigation of Climate Change (PNCBMCC) contains key national targets, to achieve zero net deforestation by 2021 and to conserve 54 million hectares of forest. Peru is in the process of developing its National REDD+ Strategy as part of its R-PP commitments, coordinated by the Ministry of Environment (MINAM). Peru proposes to develop the National REDD+ Strategy using a nested approach and aims to address the direct and underlying causes of deforestation and degradation.
In addition, a large number of forest-related public policies have been approved in the country throughout the past few decades. Some of the policies include: the National Forest Strategy (MINAG and FAO, 2002), the National Multisectoral Strategy against Illegal Logging (MINAG and others, 2004), the National Reforestation Plan, as well as sub-national plans such as San Martin’s Regional Forest Plan. These plans include guidance on crucial aspects related to REDD+, such as the implementation of legislation related to land use, fire risk management, coordination of activities between sectors relevant to REDD+, the implementation of monitoring and evaluation mechanisms for forest resources and forest research policy.
