Case studies for the development of environmental compensation in Peru

Peru compensation publications

As part of our collaboration with the Environmental Ministry in Peru (MINAM), CSF has finished a series of papers on environmental compensation (biodiversity offsets). We explored 4 infrastructure and extractive projects in Madre de Dios and Loreto, and analyzed how to offset their residual impacts. This work supports MINAM’s development and implementation of technical compensation guidelines, while also generating evidence about methods for designing environmental compensation plans.

Subsidizing Socio-environmental Compensation Processes in the Brazilian Amazon: Impact Analysis of the Teles-Pires dam

CSF is conducting an economic analysis of the impacts of the Teles-Pires dam construction in the Brazilian Amazon, to help: (1) define socio-environmental compensation values more aligned with the well-being loss perception of the affected local community via an effective economic valuation method; (2) raise local awareness of dam impacts; and (3) defend the rights of people affected by the construction.
