Loreto Peru

Summary

Loreto is one of the most advanced regions in developing a system called Spatial Data Infrastructure, or IDER for its acronym in Spanish. This instrument seeks to "standardize the generation, transformation, exchange, dissemination and use of spatial information in territorial planning and informed decision-making". In 2015, the technical office of the IDER Loreto presented the "Catalog of Geographic Objects of Forest Management", which increases transparency of forest management through publicly available satellite images.
The primary source for data on deforestation and land use change in the region comes from the national GeoBosques platform. However, based on this platform, the Government of Loreto makes its own deforestation reports (early warnings) to carry out monitoring and control activities.
In addition, Loreto has elaborated a study titled "Estimation of Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG) of Loreto: Perspectives and Uses", which estimates that 87 percent of the region’s greenhouse gas emissions come from land use change.
