Peru: National Green Growth Implementation Plan in the forest sector
The project provides support to the government of Peru in the development of the National Forestry and Wildlife Plan in two ways: by facilitating the coordination and communication between the government and other relevant stakeholders; and by contributing empirical research that help set out and implement a vision of green growth for the forest sector in Peru.

This project is carried out in a partnership between the German Development Institut / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) and the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), and is funded through the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Ministry of the Environment (BMU). The DIE/GGGI team supports the Peruvian government in the development of the National Forest and Wildlife Plan. The work has three main components:
- To support the institutional process of planning, developing and discussing the National Forest Plan by facilitating the coordination and communication between the different government agencies involved, as well as exchange and collaboration with other relevant donors, international organisations, NGOs and private stakeholders.
- To provide analysis that will serve as input for the content of the Forest Plan. The project takes a broad, multi-sector view that sees the forest in relation to other sectors such as agriculture, and aims at a comprehensive valuing of forest resources and ecosystem services. The DIE/GGGI team is making a diagnostic of current economic activities and environmental services in order to identify and prioritise the most promising options for green growth in the forest sector. With the analytical support of DIE/GGGI, the government has developed a Green Growth vision and framework that will guide the analysis and help prioritise policy choices.
- The third and final component of the project will involve support in the detailed planning and implementation of the options prioritised as a result of the previous analysis.
In sum, the project aims at providing both robust institutional support and solid evidence-based recommendations for the development of the National Forest and Wildlife Plan in Peru.
