Derecho Ambiente y Recursos Naturales is a young civil society organisation whose priority is to contribute to the sustainable development of the country, through environmental management, conservation of areas of biological diversity, and improvement in the management of natural resources, by promoting and participating in development initiatives related to social responsibility in the public and private sectors. DAR has capitalised on the opportunity presented by Making the Forest Sector Transparent to strengthen its forest-related work. To this effect, it has created a multidisciplinary team fully devoted to the issue. The nature of the team and of the work itself, especially the focus on transparency, has positioned DAR in a unique position within the Peruvian NGO sector. DAR credibility amongst organisations focusing on forest-related issues is illustrated by its appointment as the coordinator of the recently created Perú REDD roundtable, which involves representatives from the government, civil society organisations and the private sector.
