Abstract

Three million hectares of the coastal region of Peru region are under an arid climate, frequently influenced by the “El Niño” phenomenon and considered as barren or severely degraded land. The project aimed to test and build the resilience of this arid landscape by promoting potential forestry and agro-forestry activities and to formulate a national plan and strategy for arid area restoration, and establishing a collaborative institutional setting for their implementation in a participatory and inter-sectoral way.
