Political economy of REDD+ in Peru

This presentation gives an overview of the political and economic context of the REDD+ process in Peru. Money flowing to/from REDD and the forestry sector represents a small fraction of that dedicated to key drivers of deforestation. Up against bigger players like mining and agriculture, there are some challenges inherent in making the REDD+ dreams match up with reality. CIFOR scientist Mary Menton gave this presentation on 18 June 2012 at a panel discussion organised by CIFOR and partners at the ISEE 2012 Conference at Rio, which convened under the topic "Ecological Economics and Rio+20: Challenges and Contributions for a Green Economy". The panel was titled 'National strategies for reducing emissions from avoided deforestation and degradation - how much transformational change is possible in current political and economic realities? Part I - An overview'. For more information, visit http://www.cifor.org/events/rio20/
