La presente investigación realizada en la parte noroccidental de Perú, tiene como objetivo determinar las amenazas y generar las estrategias de manejo para las dos áreas naturales protegidas en estudio (Parque Nacional Cerros de Amotape, Reserva Nacional de Tumbes) que incorporen el componente del cambio climático,implementando todos los esfuerzos necesarios para que los ecosistemas mantengan su resiliencia y que se haga un esfuerzo pro-activo que contribuya a mantener la “materia
prima” de estos importantes ecosistemas.

Policy Results from BIOFIN Peru

Countries often face situations where biodiversity is not positioned on the national agenda and, in that scenario, developing financial mechanisms or mobilizing resources will be much more difficult than when biodiversity is in the mainstream of the country. Safeguarding diverse ecosystems ensures invaluable services essential for sustainable development and improvements in human wellbeing.

Designing The Regional Conservation System For The Cusco Region, Peru

In Cusco, Peru, although there have been initiatives in establishing protected areas (currently 11% of the territory is protected), many fragile ecosystems are yet to be protected. However, many conservation initiatives have been undertaken by players that are not aware of the efforts by other players in many cases undermining the whole cause of nature conservation by creating conflicts.

The Role Of Women In Early REDD+ Implementation: Lessons For Future Generations

Researchers and practitioners have extensively discussed the potential of Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) strategies to help or harm forest-based communities, but less attention has been paid to the gender dimensions of this conservation intervention. Safeguard policies aim to ensure that REDD+ does not harm women, but interventions that do not seek to address gender imbalances at the outset could end up perpetuating them.

Approaches used to evaluate the social impacts of protected areas

Protected areas are a key strategy in conserving biodiversity, and there is a pressing need to evaluate their social impacts. Though the social impacts of development interventions are widely assessed, the conservation literature is limited and methodological guidance is lacking. Using a systematic literature search, which found 95 relevant studies, the authors assessed the methods used to evaluate the social impacts of protected areas. Mixed methods were used by more than half of the studies.

Private Sector Contribution To Protected Areas

Financial mechanisms allow private sector to participate in conservation of biodiversity through corporate responsibility programs and corporate image positioning and complementing the financial sustainability for Protected Areas Systems. Private sector shows an interest in contributing to the development of programs of corporate social responsibility that focus either on social or environmental fields. However, there is still a need for coordination with the National Authorities for Protected Areas.

Environmental-Economic Accounting And Protected Areas.

Protected areas, and the ecosystems and biodiversity within, provide many benefits for people. This includes protecting biodiversity’s intrinsic values, but also safeguarding the benefits people gain from them, such as the provision and regulation of water sources, and the climate benefits of stored carbon. Consequently, protected areas are now acknowledged as an important component of sustainable development. It is imperative to track and monitor networks of protected areas and their surroundings to ensure sustainable management of landscapes and seascapes.

Equator Initiative Case Study - Ese’eja Native Community of Infierno

The Ese’eja Native Community was the first community to take advantage of Peru’s law of native communities within the state of Madre de Dios, receiving legal title to 9,558 hectares of land on both sides of the Tambopata River in the late 1970s. As a condition of defending their lands in the 1980s, the community was obliged to set aside roughly 3,000 hectares as a communal reserve where hunting, logging, forestry, or any other type of resource extraction were prohibited.
