Peru should start monitoring deforestation ahead of Lima summit, expert urges

Peru should start monitoring deforestation ahead of Lima summit, expert urges | Peruvian Amazon | Scoop.it
A new partnership with Norway and Germany is an opportunity for Peru to put in place a comprehensive, public deforestation monitoring system by the time the country hosts the UNFCCC climate meeting in December, a top forestry expert says.
On Tuesday, during the UN Climate Summit in New York, Peruvian President Ollanta Humala announced a Declaration of Intent that he said would reduce the country’s carbon emissions from deforestation and make the forest and agriculture sectors carbon-neutral by 2021.
In return, Norway has pledged to pay up to US$300 million for verified emission reductions over the next six years, with Germany continuing its current financial support and possibly adding more money depending on Peru’s results.

Smallholder profits, policies collide in Peruvian Amazon

Smallholder profits, policies collide in Peruvian Amazon | Peruvian Amazon | Scoop.it
Timber from agricultural fallows slips between the cracks in Peru’s forestry regulations, according to a team of researchers from the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) studying how smallholders manage and market bolaina and other species common in agricultural fallows. The goal is to suggest policies that could help smallholders take advantage of the fast-growing timber in a sustainable way.

In an effort to kickstart investment in mining and fossil fuels, Peru has passed a controversial law that overturns many of its environmental protections and essentially defangs its Ministry of Environment. The new law has environmentalists not only concerned about its impact on the country but also that the measures will undermine progress at the up-coming UN Climate Summit in December.

The making of Amazon Gold: once more unto the breach

The making of Amazon Gold: once more unto the breach | Peruvian Amazon | Scoop.it
When Sarah duPont first visited the Peruvian Amazon rainforest in the summer of 1999, it was a different place than it is today. Oceans of green, tranquil forest, met the eye at every turn.
