This report was produced by The Wildlife Conservation Society and Forest Trends. This report begins by providing a short overview of biodiversity offset principles and their development in the international arena. This is followed by a review of the current status in Peru of biodiversity offsets along with a comparison to existing best practice. The authors then focus on the necessary scientific baseline and metrics required for establishing a biodiversity offset system. The report concludes with the elements and activities for a roadmap and next steps on implementing a biodiversity offset scheme in Peru in the short, medium, and long-term, with specific actions identified that can help move the process forward in coordination with MINAM, SENACE, and other stakeholders.
