Multi-Asset Class Discretionary Mandate
Request for Proposals
- Deadline: May 16, 2018
- Country: Peru
The project “National Program for Natural Protected Areas” aka PRONANP aims to strengthen biodiversity conservation. It has been implemented in Peru in eight regions of the country: Tumbes, Piura, Lambayeque, Amazonas, San Martín, Arequipa, Moquegua and Tacna. This project is co-financed by the Global Environment Facility, through the World Bank, and KfW from Germany; and implemented through an interinstitutional cooperation agreement between Profonanpe, the SERNANP and eight regional governments of the country.
The main goal of this project is to contribute to the long term ecological sustainability of the protected areas of the country through the expansion of the ecological representation of the System of Protected Areas of the country and the implementation of conservation activities at different levels (national, regional and private) inside ecological corridors. It was deemed important to build a new support for conservation in the country to assure the viability and sustainability of the natural protected areas and articulate them with a broader territorial dynamic.
The PRONANP project was endowed with USD 12.6 million (3/4 from KfW, 1/4 from the World Bank), with these assets legally owned as well as administered by Profonanpe according to the project goals specified in the separate agreement signed between KfW and PROFONANPE as well as in an operational manual. The profitability obtained from the PRONANP portfolio will contribute to the financial sustainability of the protected areas of the above mentioned ecological corridors.
Key Features of the Mandate
Profonanpe is looking for one international financial institution to manage the bulk of the PRONANP assets, according to the strategic asset allocation and guidelines defined in its Investment Policy Statement (“IPS”).
