Amazonian forests represent over 90% of Peru’s forest cover. These forests provide ecosystem services including biodiversity conservation, climate regulation and water provision. They are also critical to the economic and social well-being of Peru. Despite their critical role, forests are being lost at increasing rates due to illegal logging.

To reverse this trend, Peru needs effective forest governance institutions, regulations and a competitive forest sector. The Forest Oversight and Resource Strengthening (FOREST) activity aims to promote sustainable forest management by strengthening the principles of transparency, accountability and stakeholder participation.
