Towards Adoption of Land-Use Planning for Low Emission Development Strategies (LUWES) at the National Level in Peru
Based upon this training MINAM is considering using this methodology in land-use planning processes across the country.
Given that every region of the country has a mandate to create land-use plans, this process could be a vehicle for including considerations on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the conservation of other ecosystem services in development plans. This directly links to the projects outcomes 1 and 3: 1) supportive and enabling policy environment landscape approaches, 3) Functional public-private co-investment infrastructures at landscape and national levels.
If successful, national-scale uptake of the LUWES tool will impact the entire country of Peru extending much farther beyond the SECURED landscape of the project sites.
