There are two leading offsetting projects in Peru: Corgillera Azul and Nii Kaniti. The Cordillera Azul project is working in a huge landscape of 3.7 million hectares, to protect 1.6 million hectares of threatened forest. They aim to establish sustainable livelihoods through technical assistance, and using agroforestry system for sustainable cocoa and coffee production. In tern this will help tens of thousands of local people gain access to basic services such as sanitation, health care and education. The Nii Kaniti project focuses on avoiding deforestation and protecting the rainforest through scaling up sustainable community forest management. They introduce conservation activities that put a value on indigenous-leg development with FSC certified timber extraction and cacao agroforestry.
