Introduction of the Organization

The Sociedad Peruana de Derecho Ambiental (SPDA) has always been a strong supporter of private conservation, and was a key actor pushing for the creation of a legal framework in Peru that would allow for private conservation. Thanks to successful collaboration with the government and other civil society actors, there is now a robust legal framework that allows for private conservation areas, conservation/ecotourism concessions, conservation easements, and civil conservation contracts, all facilitating the participation of the public in the protection of Peru's natural heritage. Since 2012, the Conservamos por Naturaleza (CxN) initiative of the SPDA has been focusing strongly on supporting private conservation actors in improving the management and sustainability of their privately protected areas (PPA). Notable successes have been the creation and strengthening of the Amazonas Network of Voluntary Conservation, an association whose members protect a total of nearly 110,000 hectares in Amazonas; the creation of stable supply-chains and marketing strategies allowing the sale of ecoproducts from PPAs in Lima; the development of ecotourism strategies for PPAs in Amazonas and other parts of Peru; strengthening of the PPAs managers' ability to use the law to confront threats to their areas; and improving the PPA managers' abilities to plan, implement and monitor small projects.
