The Association for Research and Integrated Development (Asociación para la Investigación y el Desarrollo Integral – AIDER) is a participatory initiative that provides capacity building and technology transfer to enable community-based conservation of forest resources across Peru. By providing technical assistance to forest-based communities in both the humid tropical forests of central eastern Peru and the tropical dry forest in the country's northern coastal region, the initiative has enhanced local capacity to improve livelihoods, protect the environment and mitigate desertification for more than a quarter of a century. Much of this work has benefitted indigenous forest-dwelling communities, including the Shipibo-Conibo people of Ucayali. AIDER mobilizes a vast partnership model to bring technical expertise to these marginalized groups, helping them to assume autonomous control of productive forest resources.

CARE began working in Peru in 1953. Their ongoing activities began around 1970, following the emergency at the Callejón de Huaylas in Ancash. Since then working on the development of poor and excluded communities in the country, applying their programming principles: promote empowerment; work in partnership with others; ensure and promote accountability; oppose discrimination and all forms of violence; and seek sustainable results. Assumes responsibility for its role as an agent of change and contributes to sustainable conditions to overcome and eradicate poverty in the country. Is aware that the responsibility as an institution goes beyond the implementation of projects that improve quality of life and the exercise of the rights of the people you work with. The vision of CARE as an organization fully agrees with that embodied in the Millennium Declaration, in which the principles of freedom, equality, solidarity, tolerance, respect for nature and shared responsibility are highlighted. Therefore adopted the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as important milestones in the country's progress towards the full realization of human rights, which together collaborate with multiple stakeholders, public and private. CARE helps to fulfill these goals, the changes generated by the projects in relation to the increase in family income, reducing chronic malnutrition, quality of education, reducing maternal morbidity and infant mortality, increasing access services to safe water and improved sanitation, and good local and regional government.

Peru’s Cordillera Azul National Park is a natural protected area created in 2001 with a core zone totaling 1.35 million hectares and a buffer zone of 2.3 million hectares. Since 2003, the Centre for Conservation, Research and Management of Natural Areas (CIMA), in collaboration with The Field Museum, has implemented a series of measures designed to protect the area, including developing a viable park management infrastructure, stabilising land use and tenure in the buffer zone by working with local communities and officials, and collaborating with regional and national government to design more biodiversity-compatible development strategies (including preventing a road from crossing through the northern section of the park). These actions have led to effective protection of the park and its ample and valuable biodiversity. Moreover, the protective actions of CIMA have led to a significant reduction in the emissions of greenhouse gases through prevention of deforestation.
The project seeks recover degraded Amazon forest through the development of a sustainable agroforestry financing scheme funded through payments for environmental services (PES). The project aims to produce a certification document to present for validation for projects grouped under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS). The project seeks to contribute to addressing the limited profitability of agroforestry systems, the difficulties confronted by geographically dispersed small-scale producers in accessing carbon financing schemes, and to increasing the market value of products from sustainable sources. The project's innovation lies in the enhancement of agroforestry carbon, which intends to result in the increased financial viability of agroforestry systems. The project aims to represent the first in Peru in which Verified Emissions Reduction (VER) certificates (or Verified Carbon Units - VCUs) will be generated from Amazonian agroforestry systems. This project may be the first step towards the establishment of sectorial approaches to reducing emissions of greenhouse gases. Another innovation is the development of a business plan for the articulation of agroforestry products in Peru's food market. The carbon from agroforestry systems intends to yield greater profitability ensuring its permanence in the market. The project will directly benefit 15 rural families living in the Iquitos-Nauta highway, by improving their revenues from selling agricultural and forestry products, and in the medium term, through the sale of VERs. Resulting revenue will be administered at the individual household level. The project is being implemented in consideration of the local context and, in particular, of gender considerations, by aiming to ensure the strengthening of traditional strategies for female participation. In cases where women are the heads of the household, training and technical assistance will be given for further impact on currently weak aspects such as the reduced availability of labor, income and literacy.
There are three explicit Project objectives: 1.The climate objective is to avoid emissions from land clearing and conversion to agriculture. 2. The community objectives are to increase economic opportunities for local villagers through employment and increased access to health care. 3. The biodiversity objective is to protect and maintain the native biodiversity.
