Evaluación cuantitativa de políticas en la pesquería de anchoveta peruana (“Quantitative evaluation of policies in the Peruvian anchovy fishery”)GALARZA CONTRERAS, Elsa PatriciaNatural Resources and Evironmental EconomicsFlour and fish oil industry on the basis of the anchoveta is the main industrial activity in the Peruvian fishing sector. In 2008, the Legislative Decree 1084, which implemented the quota system for anchovy fishery, was published. Four years later, the Supreme Decree 005-2012, which exclusively reserves the area between 5 and 10 nautical miles for small-scale fishing, destined for direct human consumption, was published. However, contradictorily, the catch for human consumption declined, while the standard became the incentive for black fishing. With future prospects toward the end of the term of the current amount and calculation of fishing rights established by Legislative Decree 1084, and with the aim of contributing to the improvement of individual quota system, the assessment of policy proposals is considered relevant under various scenarios for regulating the anchovy fishery and the potential effects of these options on production and employment in the sector. In this sense, the objective of the research is to quantitatively estimate the ex-ante impact of specific development policies for industrial fishing before various deployment scenarios.24Evaluación cuantitativa de políticas en la pesquería de anchoveta peruana (“Quantitative evaluation of policies in the Peruvian anchovy fishery”)http://www.up.edu.pe/en/Lists/Proyectos/DispForm.aspx?ID=24
Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) - PeruGALARZA CONTRERAS, Elsa Patricia;SEMINARIO DE MARZI, Luis Bruno;De la Torre Ugarte, DanielNatural Resources and Evironmental EconomicsThe Alliance for Action towards a Green Economy (PAGE) is an initiative of the United Nations System implemented by UNEP, the International Labor Organization (ILO), the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR); and Peru is one of the first countries in Latin America to implement it. State institutions committed to the initiative so far are MINAM (“Ministry of the Environment”), the PETM (“Ministry of Labor and Employment Promotion”), the MEF (“Ministry of Economy and Finance”), and Ceplan (“National Centre of Strategic Planning”). The area team will be responsible for the technical component of the project. In particular, the main objectives of the project are to develop a diagnosis of strategic planning at a national level concerning the concepts of economy and green growth and estimate a long-term model that allows to approximate the costs and benefits of a transition to a green growth model. Teachers leading the project are Elsa Galarza, Bruno Seminario and Daniel De La Torre Ugarte.1Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) - Peruhttp://www.up.edu.pe/en/Lists/Proyectos/DispForm.aspx?ID=1
Valoración de servicios ecosistémicos en las provincias amazónicas de Perú, Ecuador y Colombia (“Valuation of ecosystem services in the Amazonian provinces of Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia”)GÓMEZ GAMARRA, Zoila Del Rosario;De la Torre Ugarte, DanielNatural Resources and Evironmental EconomicsThe project, funded by the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA), seeks to make a diagnosis and an assessment of ecosystem services in six Amazonian provinces with the aim of offering its local governments better tools for managing natural resources. Between March28 and April 16, the project workshops of the greatest ecosystem services in the Amazonian provinces of Peru, Colombia, and Ecuador took place. The six workshops presented the characterization of ecosystem services with a view to regional development. Professor Rosario Gomez traveled to Colombia to discuss the results obtained in the Colombian provinces of Caqueta and Leticia, as well as the results of the department of Madre de Dios in Peru.2Valoración de servicios ecosistémicos en las provincias amazónicas de Perú, Ecuador y Colombia (“Valuation of ecosystem services in the Amazonian provinces of Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia”)http://www.up.edu.pe/en/Lists/Proyectos/DispForm.aspx?ID=2
Valoración económica del Parque Nacional del Río Abiseo (“Economic Value of the Río Abiseo National Park”)GÓMEZ GAMARRA, Zoila Del Rosario;KÁMICHE ZEGARRA, Joanna Noelia;Diderot Julien, JacquesNatural Resources and Evironmental EconomicsThe Rio Abiseo National Park (Spanish: PNRA) stands for the biodiversity it hosts. Therefore, it was recognized by UNESCO as World Natural and Cultural Heritage. In this context, it was decided to perform an investigation on economic valuation of ecosystem services in such Protected (ANP) National Area. The working hypothesis is that the support and regulation ecosystem services that the eastern PNRA provides contribute to greater productivity in cocoa production (per hectare) compared to other production areas of the culture, which are not in the sphere of influence of the PNRA. The results show that the additional productivity in the treatment group is between 333 and 498 kg / ha per year. This implies that the average farmer receives annually between S / 2031 and S / 3038 to be in the buffer zone of the PNRA.3Valoración económica del Parque Nacional del Río Abiseo (“Economic Value of the Río Abiseo National Park”)http://www.up.edu.pe/en/Lists/Proyectos/DispForm.aspx?ID=3
Aplicación de metodologías de valoración económica en temas ambientales (“Application of economic valuation methodologies on environmental issues”)GÓMEZ GAMARRA, Zoila Del Rosario;KÁMICHE ZEGARRA, Joanna NoeliaNatural Resources and Evironmental EconomicsThe project aims to explain, in economic terms, the contribution of ecosystem services and the importance of economic valuation methods to reveal their value. To this end, the respective theoretical analysis is developed and then illustrated with case studies applications.4Aplicación de metodologías de valoración económica en temas ambientales (“Application of economic valuation methodologies on environmental issues”)http://www.up.edu.pe/en/Lists/Proyectos/DispForm.aspx?ID=4
