Planning for low-emissions development in Ucayali, Peru

Abstract
Regional governments in Peru are stepping up their activities to participate in national and global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from land-use change by identifying possible mitigation actions. The ongoing process of Land Use Planning based on the Ecological and Economical Zoning is a key opportunity for integrating mitigation strategies within development planning activities. The regional government of Ucayali in Peru and partners are building on previous research on land-use change to understand the implications of development for emissions, effectively integrating economic development and environmental considerations in their land-use planning activities.
