The distribution of powers and responsibilities affecting forests, land use, and REDD+ across levels and sectors in Peru: A legal study
This report was commissioned under CIFOR’s Global Comparative Study on REDD+, as part of a research project on multilevel governance and carbon management at the landscape scale. Its purpose is to describe the distribution of powers and responsibilities related to land use, forests, ecosystem services and, by extension, REDD+ among levels and sectors of the Peruvian government. To that end it reviews laws dealing explicitly with different sectors that affect land use and also decentralisation. It is intended as a reference for researchers and policy makers working on land use issues in Peru, and is therefore largely descriptive in its content.
