Business models to address drivers of deforestation in Peru
As of: March 2019
Objective and activities
The project will develop sustainable business models and support stakeholder coalitions that lead to a reduction of emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) and promote sustainable land use in the Peruvian Amazon. The business and agricultural development models will be identified in a participative approach and selected to promote economic, environmental, and social values in rural communities. Activities pursued under the project include the analysis of context specific drivers of deforestation, assessments of GHG emissions in prioritized value chains, development of sustainable business models, evaluation of business models regarding their potential to deliver economic, environmental (reduction of net GHG) and social benefits as well as the development of pilot implementation plans, up scaling and financing strategies, and dissemination of results as a basis for wider adoption.
