Indigenous communities conserve and sustainably manage the forests of their territories; likewise, they restore degraded lands to implement an innovative model of community forest management and, therefore, contribute to the reduction of GHG greenhouse gas emissions.

Sustainable business

The project will improve the living conditions of the indigenous communities, through the implementation of sustainable economic activities, based on the integral use of indigenous resources. Four sustainable business lines will be developed:

  • Sustainable forest management
  • Agroforestry
  • Forest plantations
  • Non-forestry products (shiringa latex vegetable leather, Handcraftings, medicinal plants, others)


The project will be developed in 7 native communities belonging to the Shipibo - Conibo and Cacataibo ethnic groups located in the Ucayali and Huánuco Region, which occupy an area of 127,004 hectares.


  • 350 families directly involved.
  • 2 500 people benefited.
  • 166 species of flora conserved.
  • 257 species of fauna conserved.
