The Association for Research and Integrated Development (Asociación para la Investigación y el Desarrollo Integral – AIDER) is a participatory initiative that provides capacity building and technology transfer to enable community-based conservation of forest resources across Peru. By providing technical assistance to forest-based communities in both the humid tropical forests of central eastern Peru and the tropical dry forest in the country's northern coastal region, the initiative has enhanced local capacity to improve livelihoods, protect the environment and mitigate desertification for more than a quarter of a century. Much of this work has benefitted indigenous forest-dwelling communities, including the Shipibo-Conibo people of Ucayali. AIDER mobilizes a vast partnership model to bring technical expertise to these marginalized groups, helping them to assume autonomous control of productive forest resources.

Bosques Amazónicos (BAM) is a private-sector company founded in Peru in 2004. We aim to become a global leader in the development and commercialization of forestry and environmental assets. We believe that private capital should play a key role in the development of a sustainable world and we are passionate about unlocking the sustainability potential of the forests in Latin America. We work in collaboration with the local communities in the conservation, protection, restoration and sustainable management of their forests. We believe that a holistic, multi-revenue, and sustainable approach to management is an effective way to unlock the potential of Latin America’s forests for the long-term. We work closely with our partners to earn carbon credits from our conservation and reforestation projects, we invest in sustainable timber production facilities, land management activities and we work on bringing other sustainable forest products to the market, such as organic-certified Brazil nuts.

Iniciamos nuestras labores en el Perú en el año 1989. Somos una organización no gubernamental internacional, sin fines de lucro, que busca la participación de la sociedad en la conservación de los servicios que brinda la naturaleza y que son la base del bienestar humano. Contribuimos a que el Perú reconozca la megadiversidad biológica y cultural como su principal riqueza y utilice este principio como guía de sus políticas de desarrollo. Sabemos que este trabajo no es individual por eso construimos alianzas estratégicas con actores sociales e instituciones claves, tanto del Estado, como de la sociedad civil. Nuestro equipo está conformado por profesionales de distintas disciplinas, quienes en conjunto con los socios locales, desarrollan diversas acciones de conservación. En la actualidad, buscamos contribuir en el desarrollo de políticas ambientales nacionales basándonos en la experiencia recogida en las iniciativas que desarrollamos en Madre de Dios y San Martín.

THE AMAZON ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH INSTITUTE (IPAM) is a non-profit, independent research, policy and outreach organization that has worked over the past 16 years towards achieving sustainable development in the Amazon region in a way that reconciles people’s economic aspirations and social justice with the maintenance of the functional integrity of tropical forest landscapes. Made up of scientists and educators, the remit of IPAM was to address three problems that threaten the survival of the forest and its people: degraded landscape, non-sustainable economies and social injustice. To that effect, another important premise of IPAM, which still cuts across its main work, is the idea that solutions to the problems arising for Amazon region shall, necessarily, include the active participation of people living in the region, especially the forest people: indigenous, extractivists, rivers village and maroons, among others. Throughout the history of IPAM, that style of science was based on the concept of participatory research by measuring and assessing both from the point of view of scientific research, environment conservation and community. Regarding community work, IPAM express deep concern about social organization

In line with this, in Peru TNC is partnering with indigenous organisations to improve their territorial protection and management by providing communities with tools to help implement management and conservation plans in their lands, especially those that have recently obtained legal recognition. This provides indigenous organisations with planning support to become stronger organisations and more effectively confront environmental threats. TNC is also helping to reinforce existing networks and alliances of indigenous organisations in the region and catalyse new ones. The main activities of TNC related to REDD+ are supporting the Regional Government of San Martin in the implementation of its regional plan for building the technical capabilities building for the implementation of a forest monitoring system for REDD+.

El Sira Communal Reserve (CER) is located in the central-eastern region of Peru, on the area of the Cordillera El Sira, influenced by the basins of the Ucayali, Pachitea and Pichis rivers. unique in its kind. It is a steep mountain range of about 2,500 meters high and covered by tropical forest. The aim of the communal reserve is the conservation of biological diversity of the area and the benefit of native communities belonging to ethnic groups Ashaninka, Yanesha and Shipibo-Conibo, located in the area of influence. Their presence also allows conservation and climate regulation, watershed protection and water harvesting for human use. The CER has large tracts of undisturbed primary forest, hosting a complexity of ecosystems due to its variation in altitude. Due to its geographical location, the communal reserve is botanically rich with high species diversity, high number of endemic species and significant presence of various types of vegetation. The area is virtually inaccessible to non-locals due to the labyrinth of steep hills and encañonadas streams that feed the river Ucayali. These territories are the ancestral lands of ethnic Ashaninka natives, who still hunt in the hills. The lakes in El Sira are considered places of respect for indigenous people, because they consider these inputs into the inner world. This set of features make the CER a priority for conservation instead.
