Increased Relevance and Influence of Free Prior Informed Consent, Redd, and Green Economy Principles on Sustainable Commons Management in Peru

CAM Soria Dall’Orso


This paper examines unique opportunities provided by international discourses and practices of the Green Economy approach and valuation of ecosystem services (as promoted under the international climate change regime) on the sustainable management of indigenous forests and lands in Peru. It examines the influence of epistemological changes prompted by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) on the improved understanding and conceptualization of the role of forests and sound natural resource management; and how these changes at the international level have positively impacted traditional land rights in Peru.1 It also analyses how increased development and financing of Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) processes and projects have enhanced the incorporation of interculturality into indigenous peoples’ public policy in Peru.
