DescriptionThe objective of the project is to promote sustainable cultivation of poison dart frogs for export, so local people can earn a better living from conserving the forest than by cutting it down. The project’s main outcomes are in three complementary areas: forest preservation, poverty alleviation, and frog conservation. The project also supports a few related beneficial outcomes.
Implementation StatusCEO Approval was received on April 11, 2003 and Management Approval was provided on Jan. 30, 2004. However, IFC held off on signing the Grant Agreement until it became clear that the local sponsor would be able to obtain the forect concession from the Peruvian Government. After many disruptions within the Peruvian Government, this finally appears to be the case. IFC will soon make the first disbursement.
