Regional research agenda of Amazonas

Regional research agenda of Amazonas

Peru wants to prioritize sustainable development and wildlife, but there is currently no uniform way to use the resources at hand for the conservation of forests and wildlife. We are working closely with the Regional Government of Amazonas to support their first Regional Research Agenda, a critical, region-wide tool for conservation.

How does this project achieve our goal?

Rainforest Partnership is working together with SERFOR (Forest and Wildlife Service) to create a Regional Research Agenda. We want to create an innovative national plan that would guide the future landscape of research on forestry and wildlife in the Amazonas.

How it works

Who we work with

  1. The first step was to understand what research exists regarding the region’s ecology and community landscape. We built a matrix with all research done in the Amazonas region during the past 40 years. Notably, our team found only 198 publications related to the forestry and wildlife resources of Amazonas, demonstrating an urgent need to promote further research in the region. However, the studies we collected will inform the regional government’s conservation plans and policies, grounding their important work in concrete science and data.
  2. Our research also included surveys of all campesino and indigenous communities on how they use their natural resources. This will guide stakeholders to create strategies that will convert this agenda into a Regional Ordinance.
