The Association for the Conservation of the Amazon Basin (ACCA) is a non-profit organisation that is active in Peru and Bolivia. It works to protect biodiversity through research into ecosystems and the development of innovative conservation tools to protect land while supporting the livelihoods of local communities. By late 2013, ACCA has implemented REDD+ in its Conservation Concession "Los Amigos". It expects that the natural forests of Peru will provide economic benefits to the State, local populations and help to mitigate climate change. ACCA looks to create a model for REDD+ that can be implemented in Peru with tangible benefits. ACCA participates in the National REDD+ Group, the Environmental Services and REDD+ Roundtable and Madre de Dios REDD+ Roundtable.

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.

Madre de Dios is located in south-eastern Peru, almost entirely within the Amazon rainforest. The regional government has a mission to organise and conduct public management according to its jurisdiction, and to produce environmentally sustainable development. Madre de Dios is known as the “capital of biodiversity” in Peru because of its remarkable wild fauna and flora and its low deforested area (4.75%). However, over the twenty years from 1990 to 2000, the deforestation rate increased dramatically, according to the National Institute of Natural Resources (INRENA) and the Research Institute of the Peruvian Amazon (IIAP). The regional government of Madre de Dios is promoting the implementation of subnational REDD+ in the region.

THE AMAZON ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH INSTITUTE (IPAM) is a non-profit, independent research, policy and outreach organization that has worked over the past 16 years towards achieving sustainable development in the Amazon region in a way that reconciles people’s economic aspirations and social justice with the maintenance of the functional integrity of tropical forest landscapes. Made up of scientists and educators, the remit of IPAM was to address three problems that threaten the survival of the forest and its people: degraded landscape, non-sustainable economies and social injustice. To that effect, another important premise of IPAM, which still cuts across its main work, is the idea that solutions to the problems arising for Amazon region shall, necessarily, include the active participation of people living in the region, especially the forest people: indigenous, extractivists, rivers village and maroons, among others. Throughout the history of IPAM, that style of science was based on the concept of participatory research by measuring and assessing both from the point of view of scientific research, environment conservation and community. Regarding community work, IPAM express deep concern about social organization

The Belgica Native Community is developing a sustainable forestry management plan and a REDD project in its forest (53,394 hectares). A consortium of private companies has been created to assist the community in this endeavor. Carbon Decisions International is part of this consortium and is developing the REDD Project Descriptions under the CCB standards and VCS.
The project will be developed in the area of the Infierno Native Community and Ese'Eja Ecotourism Concession located in the Madre de Dios region, these surfaces belong politically to the Tambopata province and Tambopata district, adding a total area of 7,749.93 hectares. The purpose is to conserve the community forests and the ecotourism concession, from the advance of deforestation. The project plan to reduce the pressure to change of land use through the promotion of sustainable economic activities, forest governance and the establishment of conservation agreements in critical areas previously identified. These actions are intended to prevent the advance of agriculture. This actions will be done in partnership and coordination with institutions that currently are conducting conservation activities in the area.
In 2001, Peru approved the world's first conservation concession in a little-known Amazonian watershed in Manu National Park’s buffer zone. Eleven years later, the 360,000 acre Los Amigos Conservation Concession is a model conservation area patrolled by local forest rangers and managed under a renewable 40-year contract to the Amazon Conservation Association's (ACA) sister organisation, the Association for the Conservation of the Amazon Basin (Asociación para la Conservación de la Cuenca Amazónica; ACCA). This reserve conserves the region's high levels of biodiversity, hosts the Amazon's most active research station, and serves as a buffer for indigenous peoples living in voluntary isolation in the vast headwaters of the Los Amigos River. As part of its watershed conservation strategy, ACA is preparing to sell avoided deforestation carbon offset credits. A cutting-edge assessment by Winrock International shows that the forest in the concession holds 79.4 million tons of CO2. Deforestation that will accompany the new Brazil-Peru Interoceanic highway threatens to release this massive store of carbon. Carbon financing will keep this forest intact while providing benefits to local people and stimulating scientific research and training. Los Amigos carbon offsets will meet both the Voluntary Carbon Standard and the Climate Community and Biodiversity Standard to ensure benefits for local people and the rich forests in which they live.
The Madre de Dios Amazon REDD Project is being implemented in 100,000 hectares of forest in the Vilcabamba-Amboró Conservation Corridor, a biodiversity hotspot, in the Peruvian Amazon. According to the Project Document, the project is being implemented less than 30km from the new inter-oceanic highway uniting Brazil with Peru’s ports. This highway has already led to deforestation in Brazil and therefore poses a threat to forests on the Peruvian side. The project area is already at risk of illegal logging, primarily for high value mahogany species. The project aims to reduce deforestation by increasing monitoring and enforcement in the area and by benefiting local communities. It aims to contribute to the sustainable development of rural producers and indigenous communities; the Yine and Mashco Piro tribes. The project has been validated, by SCS Global Services, according to the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and the Climate, Community and Biodiversity (CCB) standard (CCB Standards First Edition Gold Level), which guarantee social and environmental sustainability and audits its carbon credits. The project has been also registered in the Markit Environmental Registry Platform to guarantee the transparency of the carbon transactions.

Bosques Amazónicos (BAM) has partnered with the Madre de Dios Federation of Small Forestry Concessions (FEFOREMAD) to protect and conserve 85,000 hectares of small forestry concessions. FEFOREMAD comprises 200 members, with concessions of an average size of 500 hectares. BAM has developed a long-term strategy to increase the income derived from environmentally sustainable forestry and empower concessioners to protect their natural resources. BAM is empowering concessionaires to protect their land and livelihoods and respond to the threats of illegal mining and slash-and-burn agriculture. The project will increase the value of forest resources and the sustainable incomes of concessionaires, through an on-site sawmill and processing plant, FSC certification in forest management to ensure environmental standards and to boost product value, and the sale of carbon credits from the reforestation of degraded concession areas.
