Amazonas Peru

Phase 3 of the Forests, Farms and Finance Initiative "Building bridges between local policies, REDD + and initiatives for sustainable supply chains" will support the construction of jurisdictional low emissions rural development plans.

In Peru, the 3FI initiative is led by the Earth Innovation Institute and the Amazon Regional Council (CIAM, in Spanish) and is developing incentives for low-emission rural development under a production and protection approach. The activities of 3FI in the Peruvian Amazon are led by the regional governments and are open to the participation of any public or private institution that wishes to contribute. 3FI considers with special attention the participation of indigenous peoples and women in the activities to be carried out. The initiative is based on empowering the progress of each region to make the necessary incentives proposals by building tailored instruments for each jurisdiction. Output from the project include: (a) developing regional plans or roadmaps to promote a transition to low-emission rural development; (b) promoting a transparent dialogue process at the regional level which includes the perspectives of indigenous peoples and women; and (c) developing a business plan to attract private investment and promote low-emission rural development in the Peruvian Amazon.
