On December 6th, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) committed $15 million to support scaling up green infrastructure, the natural ecosystems that provide key services like regulating water flows and preventing erosion, as a measure to manage water risks in Peru. The commitment comes in the form of a cooperative agreement signed with Forest Trends, an international non-governmental organization that works to innovate and scale-up finance for conservation, to implement the Green Infrastructure for Water Security project.


Under this new agreement, Forest Trends will lead the Invierte Verde (“Invest Green”) consortium, composed of the Consortium for Sustainable Development of the Andean Ecoregion (CONDESAN), the Peruvian Society of Environmental Law (SPDA), EcoDecisión, and Imperial College London.
