Last October 20th was the closing ceremony of the Tropical Forest Conservation Agreement (ACBT), a 13-year collaboration between the United States Government, Peru’s National Natural Protected Areas Service (SERNANP) and civil society to manage protected areas for biodiversity conservation and contribute to the development of conditions for sustainability and new challenges to climate change.

From 2002 to 2015, the period in which the ACBT has been in effect, important issues have arisen, such as the relationship between natural protected areas and climate change, the conservation of biodiversity to avoid carbon emissions, and the emergence of the eco-tourism industry for natural protected area conservation.  The activities implemented under the ACBT have positively impacted these issues and have also helped advance SERNANP’s development eco-tourism.
