Economic Analysis of Hydroelectric Projects in the Marañón River Basin

The Marañón River, along with the Ucayali and Madre de Dios rivers, is one of the main tributaries of the Amazon in Peru. The Marañón basin also concentrates many of the planned hydroelectric projects in Peru. More than 20 dams, of which at least six are in advanced stages of planning or execution, can significantly affect the biodiversity and environmental services provided by this key basin of the Amazon.

Opportunity cost assessment and mapping Tropical Andes

International climate change discussions have identified the use of economic incentives as an important means to reduce deforestation. Governments in the Amazon Andes have created or are in the process of creating incentive mechanisms to pursue this goal, frequently alongside other complementary development and conservation objectives.  In order to be most effective, one of the key pieces of information that these mechanisms need is the opportunity cost of conservation. Unfortunately, this data is remarkably scarce in the region.
