Some of the main expected socioeconomic benefits of SGP Peru are: · Improved livelihoods due to improved agricultural productivity and resilience, diversified income, and access to market; · Strengthening of local community organizations traditional knowledge; · Women´s empowerment; · Development of business and management skills of local entrepreneurs, including female entrepreneurs; and, · Increased social capital through expanded association of local people, and inclusive participation of local communities in conservation and restoration of local ecosystems. Adopting SGP´s integrated, socio-ecological landscape resilience approach in the project will help to align socioeconomic benefits with the achievement of global environmental benefits related to biodiversity conservation. Facilitated through multi-stakeholder, participatory processes, collective action initiated at the community level will lead to conservation of biodiversity at scale. SGP Peru will contribute to SDG 1 (end poverty in all its forms everywhere), SDG 13 (take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts), and SDG 15 (protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss).
