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.

Development of policies and monitoring instruments for rural development plan for the Amazon.
This project seeks reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions associated with deforestation and promote sustainable use of natural resources in the field of six regional governments in the Peruvian Amazon as contribution to mitigation and adaptation to climate change, biodiversity conservation, improved livelihoods of the local population and the development of practices regional, national and international policies and market mechanisms for rural development under emissions.The project will be implemented in two scales. At the interregional scalepolicies and monitoring instruments will be developed for rural development plans for the Amazon under a competitive, inclusive and low emission approach. The second scale is local and focuses on the basin of the Pachitea to develop a platform for low-emission rural development and strengthen capacities of local authorities and indigenous organizations. Work on the Pachitea is led by Instituto del Bien Comun - IBC.
The project is expected achieve as first product the development of an Interregional Plan for promotion of a low emission development involving all participating regions. The project will also develop a platform for performance monitoring territorial performance as well as models of competitive and inclusive governance and incentives to reduce deforestation.

Goals of the coalition include reducing deforestation associated with agriculture, creating roadmaps for public - private coordination by Amazon region, designing an architecture of financing, increasing the productivity of agricultural crops and increasing the value of forests and promote forest plantations. It is expected that these measures will open a pathway to build sustainable jurisdictions, especially in the value chains of the Amazon through a Production - Protection approach. A group of companies from the Pro Ucayali network, comprising the largest companies in the region, have joined the coalition.

The management contract was issued by the Peruvian Government in 2007. AIDER assumes responsibility for operations since 2008 with a duration of 20 years. The project has already completed sale carbon credits to various national and international buyers.
The main objective is emission reductions validated by the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and certified by the Climate and Biodiversity Alliance Cammunity. The project has a concession until 2035 and is still under implementation.
