File Indigenous Tribe Earns Validation for Landmark Forest Carbon Project by Joseph Badash — last modified Jan 10, 2013 11:44 AM
A small tribe of indigenous people unknown to the outside world a half-century ago and once on the brink of extinction has harnessed an innovative forest carbon project to shield their territory from illegal logging and preserve their chosen way of life. As a result, the 1300-strong Paiter-Surui last week became the first indigenous tribe in the Amazon and globally to earn carbon credits under internationally recognized standards for capturing carbon in trees – setting the stage for scores of similar projects that can unleash needed funding for indigenous people who preserve endangered tropical rainforest across the Amazon.

File Assessment of Conditions for Biodiversity and Fragile Ecosystems Conservation and Management in Peru by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jan 10, 2013 10:49 AM
The threats to reduced biological diversity are grouped in two categories: policy threats and site specific threats to diverse biologically-rich ecosystems. Divided environmental authority, misconception of the value of conserving biodiversity and forests, inadequate legal norms, lack of participation of the local population in the management of protected areas, unsustainable land and resource use, uncontrolled mining and hydrocarbon exploration in protected areas, uncontrolled tourism expansion, and deforestation all contribute to loss of biological diversity. The most appropriate response to these threats is one that addresses improvements in the management of biological diversity and forests, combined with efforts to generate economic alternatives for local communities living in and around threatened ecosystems.
