National Forestry and Climate Change Strategy

legislation type Executive
Passed in 2016
The National Forestry and Climate Change Strategy identifies the major threats to Peru's forests and lays out a strategy for countering them.

The key objective is to: "Reduce the loss and degradation of forests in Peru, and therefore emissions of GHG linked to LULUCF sector and improve the resilience of the forest landscape and the people who depend on these ecosystems, with special emphasis on the Indians and peasants, to reduce their vulnerability to climate change".

The strategy also aims to contribute to reaching the goal set in Peru's INDC submitted to the UNFCCC in 2015, which targets a 30 per cent reduction in projected emissions by 2030, out of which two thirds correspond to land use, land use change and forestry sector.

The strategy also recognizes the importance of REDD+ in Peru and sets guidelines for preparatory actions to comply with REDD+.


  • 67% of the 30% total GHG reduction in Peru will come from LULUCF sector by 2030
