RAINFOR signs new cooperation agreement with SERNANP (Peru)

On 16 October, Tim Baker signed a cooperation agreement on behalf of RAINFOR (Amazon Forestry Inventory Network) with the Protected Areas Authority in Peru (SERNANP) to monitor the impact of climate change on the nation’s forests (see here). The first activity as part of this agreement will be training of SERNANP staff in methods of permanent monitoring, led by colleagues at the Instituto de Investigaciones de la Amazonia Peruana, in the Cordillera Escalera in northern Peru in early November.
