The Ministry of Environment (MINAM) has published a supreme decree (No. 007-2016-MINAM) approving the National Strategy on Forests and Climate Change, which establishes guidelines  for the design and implementation of public policies, programs, projects, and actions that aim to help Peru combat deforestation and the degradation of its forests, and mitigate and adapt to climate change. The Strategy stems from a participatory process involving public and private institutions, indigenous groups, the international community, research institutions, and the general public.
