  • Peru sits in the Andean Amazon, a region that faces enormous threats to its ecological integrity, as well as to its traditional inhabitants, mostly vulnerable indigenous peoples.
  • Forest conversion and fragmentation, mainly by agriculture and cattle ranching, is boosted by the continued expansion of the road network. Forest degradation and deforestation is driven by illegal logging and mining, as well as unsustainable forest product harvesting. Water contamination and hydrological alteration occurs in river basins affected by mega dams and extractive industries such as oil.
  • The Madre de Dios region in the southern Peruvian Amazon is one of the most biodiverse regions in the world, but now has more than 3,000 mining concessions in operation. In total, 34% of the Peruvian Amazon is covered in oil and gas concessions – this includes concessions allocated over titled land and protected areas.
  • Working here since 1998.
