The PMSAP guarantees the active participation of communities and towns located in the area of direct influence of PERU LNG. According to the program, the communities designate their representatives, called “monitors”, who are responsible for monitoring the possible social and environmental impacts related to the operation of the gas pipeline; for example, identifying, recording and communicating all findings when convenient to their own communities and the company.
Upon receiving these reports, PERU LNG analyzes and takes corrective actions in a timely manner, which allows the continuous improvement of its operations.
The results of the PMSAP and the closure of findings management and observations can be seen in detail on the website of the program.
This program was conceived by PERU LNG in collaboration with the Center for Conservation, Education and Sustainability (CCES) of the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI), with the purpose of conserving the biodiversity during the construction of the project and the operation of the gas pipeline, plant and maritime terminal.
The BMAP determines the conditions of the species, their habitats and changes over time through biological monitoring and assessments. With this information guides are developed so that PERU LNG can make decisions that help mitigate any impact on biodiversity. The BMAP’s results can be seen in detail on the program website.
