Peru, Germany, Norway launch climate and forest partnership

Peru will take immediate and decisive action to reduce its forest related emissions towards making the forest- and agriculture sector carbon neutral within 2021 and recognize millions of hectares of indigenous peoples’ land claims. Norway commits to pay for verified results with up to 300 million USD for the period up until 2020. Germany will continue its current extensive support to Peru on climate and forest issues, and consider further contributions on the basis of Peru’s delivery of results.
