Peru: Vibrant forests for thriving communities

Indigenous economies in Peru

  • Status


  • Location Lamas Province

Large portions of forestland are destroyed to harvest products that global markets demand (coffee, cocoa, palm oil, etc). Indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods are then put under immense pressure to engage in large-scale single crop production which relies heavily on 
pesticides. Through the project, indigenous communities can protect forests and biodiversity, enhance their livelihoods and access high-value markets for sustainably-produced products. It involves long-term technical skills development, inclusive economic growth and improved governance in native communities.
