Conservation & Sustainable Development
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Forest Trends works globally to expand understanding of the benefits that ecosystems provide to people and to promote the use of innovative instruments for conservation. The project will build on the Peruvian Incentives for Watershed Services Incubator and strengthen and expand local efforts to establish ecosystem service projects that are designed around water flow. Secondly it will assist Peru in defining national guidelines for an Environmental Compensation Regulation on impacts from infrastructure and extractive industry projects and assist San Martin Department environmental authorities to implement this new regulatory instrument in the mining, energy and hydropower sectors.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Forest Trends $280,000 between 2010 and 2013.
