field trips Amazon Peru

About 1% of Peru’s 68.7 million hectares (ha) of
forest (673,615 ha) are certified under FSC,1 the
only voluntary certification scheme operating in
the country. The first FSC certificate was issued in 2005; since then, seven certificates
for Forest Management/Chain of Custody (FM/CoC) and 20 for CoC have been issued.
Historically Peru has been characterized by a low rate of deforestation (0.1% between
1990 and 2005)
