Abstract

In this paper we take a critical look at the interpretation and application of the Production-Protection-Compact concept in the Peruvian context and the adaptations needed in order to increase the chances for its success. We examine the characteristics of deforestation in the Peruvian Amazon and the coffee, cocoa, and oil palm value chains implicated in deforestation. This is followed by a short description of the application of the PPC strategy in Brazil in order to identify key elements and their potential application in the Peruvian Amazon, as well as the identification of major questions and areas of uncertainty. Finally, we attempt to outline the way forward for implementing the PPC in the Peruvian Amazon.
