Timber production in smallholder agroforestry systems: Justifications for pro-poor forest policy in Peru

Timber production in smallholder agroforestry systems: Justifications for pro-poor forest policy in Peru

This document provides background and explanations for suggestions to modify the draft of the Regulations of the Forest and Wildlife Law (Law No. 29763). The new regulations offer possibilities to reduce the regulatory burden placed on smallholder farmers who produce and sell fast-growing timber in their farming systems. Reducing regulations on these relatively benign systems will also lower the burden on forestry agencies, allowing them to focus regulatory actions on old growth forests, threatened forest species, and other actors involved with these resources.
