Summary

Ranking forth among high forest-cover tropical countries, Peru is well positioned to promote REDD+ as a national strategy to reduce deforestation levels and mitigate climate change. Nonetheless, technical capacity and legal instruments need to be further developed for the successful implementation of a REDD+ strategy in Peru. Additionally, while there is interest by indigenous groups and regional governments in promoting REDD+, there is still a need to strengthen local capacity for these groups to be effectively engaged in REDD+ development.
