Table 1 Status of logging concessions in the Peruvian Amazon. The Forestry Law introduced a new regime for controlled access to Peru’s forest resources via a system of concessions, permits, and authorizations Allocating logging rights in Peruvian Amazonia–does it matter to be local? Timber extraction exceeding authorized volumes.
Logging Concessions Enable Illegal Logging Crisis in the Peruvian Amazon
Can forest conservation and logging be reconciled? In some cases, inspectors even found harvestable trees still standing at the coordinates indicated in the POA. The unobtained resolutions were for newly supervised concessions and were emitted after we closed our data-collection process. This concept assumes that selectively logged concessions can maintain forest cover across the landscape better than other land uses, such 273088 agriculture.
We present evidence that Peru’s legal logging concession system, established in the Forestry Law and later reinforced by the US—Peru TPA, is enabling widespread illegal logging.
Support for research was provided by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. Their central role is to carry out post-harvest field inspections, known as supervisions, to ensure that the concessionaire complied with both the annual operating plan and national regulations Land-use allocation protects the Peruvian Amazon. Lam Tac forest hijackers in practice and talk. Failure to present management plans within the established timeframe. Of the six concessions with mahogany violations, four were documented after Abstract The Peruvian Amazon is an important arena in global efforts to promote sustainable logging in the tropics.

The POA includes detailed information for each individual tree to be extracted in that year’s particular parcel, including species, estimated harvest volume of sawn timber, and GPS coordinates Failure to comply with the General Forest Management Plan.
The fight for red gold: Likewise, the main field inspection also occurs post-harvest. Timber extraction outside of the concession limits.

Authorized timber cedar in the POA left standing. Instead, they become a tradable item and enable loggers to launder timber extracted outside of authorized areas leg At the heart of the problem is that authorities only check the regulatory documents in transport or at port arrival, well after the timber has left the forest.
See text for category explanations.
Results and discussion We grouped the logging concessions into four categories based on whether or not they have been supervised and the results of those supervisions Figure 1Table 1. PLoS One 6e Sears and Pinedo-Vasquez 16 found regular inconsistencies between the location of the authorized logging areas and the actual origin of the raw logs through interviews with loggers arriving to a port in southern Loreto.
Authorized timber non-cedar in the POA left standing.

Of these, we obtained and reviewed the resolutions for concessions. However, comprehensive and quantitative analyses of precisely how existing legal frameworks facilitate this illegal logging are rare. Despite recent efforts to achieve sustainability, such as provisions in the US—Peru Trade Promotion Agreement, illegal logging continues to plague the region.
We grouped the logging concessions into lej categories based on whether or not they have been supervised and the results of those supervisions Figure 1Table 1.
We evaluated each resolution lley the following four classes of data: The authors declare no competing financial interests.

Violation Percent Illegal extraction of cedar However, the new Forestry Ely maintains the same general logging concession system that is the subject of this study. This framework features a General Forest Management Plan hereafter PGMF for the Spanish acronymwhereby the concessionaire projects what trees they expect to extract over the next five years, and a more detailed Annual Operating Plan hereafter POA for the Spanish acronym for each year of operation In the larger context, reconciling forest conservation and logging cannot be attained until timber extraction is contained to authorized concessions and 273008 rampant throughout the landscape.
