General

(Peru): We will invest $1,000,000 of FY 2014 Biodiversity funds in the Social Capital in Forest Management activity to be implemented by a local NGO in the Ucayali Region of Peru. We will promote sustainable forest management, biodiversity conservation, and mitigation of deforestation and land degradation. Project results will help slow greenhouse gas emissions from current land uses. We will also promote participatory democratic processes of consultation and coordination between public institutions and social groups considered "excluded". Taking into account intercultural differences between Andean migrant populations and indigenous communities we will work to strengthen the capacity of communities within the activity's implementation area. Increases in human capabilities and technical skills in community forest management will have a positive impact on the environment and the quality of life of participants.
