Peru : Lessons Learnt

In Peru, deforestation caused by changes in the use of lands for forestry and protection uses, principally to plant agricultural crops and for livestock grazing, together with an increase in illegal logging and trade in wood, are a permanent concern for the national, regional and local authorities, social organisations and the local population in general. These problems are made more acute by the levels of corruption: one in every four people claim they have paid bribes, and eight out of ten believe the political parties are either corrupt or extremely corrupt, whereas half of the people questioned said that the action taken by their government to stop corruption is ineffective. These are some of the conclusions of the Global Barometer for Corruption 2010. In Peru specifically, according to the Transparency International evaluation, in 2010 perceptions of corruption increased compared to 2009.
