Main Information
Title Actuales Incentivos Económicos en los Diversos Sectores, Peru
Description The document notes that the use of economic incentive measures for conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity in Peru is in early stages, as the environment regulation in the relevant sectors analyzed mostly relies on command-and-control type of instruments. The report indicates, however, that the Forest Code of Peru envisages activities on the detection and elimination of perverse incentives for the conservation and sustainable use of forests, and on the option to support voluntary, independent certification schemes for forest products by giving rebates on relevant fees.
