Peru has a forest cover 73.3 million hectares, including part of the Amazon Rainforest, which covers over 60% of the country’s territory. The Peruvian Ministry of Environment (MINAM) estimates the country’s annual deforestation rate at approximately 0.2%, which is relatively low. However, deforestation is considered the primary source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the country.

Peru submitted its Readiness Preparation Proposal (R-PP) to the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) in March 2011. The R-PP was under review throughout 2013, and the grant agreement is expected to be signed in early 2014. In addition, Peru recently presented the final version of its investment plan under the Forest Investment Program (FIP) and received the first tranche of funding to create a Dedicated Grant Mechanism for Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities. This FIP funding will be reported as part of the 2013 data in late 2014.
