While the Region of Amazonas has historically low rates of deforestation, it is facing but several challenges in the management of their forests. The tegion is home to a number of indigenous communities (including the awajun and wampis) who depend on forest and ecosystem services to sustain their livelihoods.
Amazonas has taken steps to improve the management of its forests through the creation of a Regional Environmental Authority and the implementation of a Regional Conservation System. However, there are pending challenges such as designing a jurisdictional forest conservation strategy, improving management for sustainable use of forest resources (especially indigenous community forests),and increasing funding to support these initiatives.
