The potential to enhance deforestation free agriculture and forestry investments in the peruvian amazon
The potential to enhance deforestation free agriculture and forestry investments in the Peruvian Amazon is a commissioned study by the norwegian government and the National Forest Conservation Programme for the Climate Change Mitigation of Peru (Programa Nacional de Conservación de Bosques para la Mitigación del Cambio Climático). It was developed by Solidaridad, SEED and Nature Services Peru.
The study is focussed in the identification of opportunities and challenges for the development of deforestation free agriculture and forestry investments in the deforested areas from the Peruvian amazon biome.
