NDC Peru: support to the implementation of the National Climate Change Strategy
As of: April 2020
Objective and activities
The Ministry of Environment (MINAM) coordinates the technical and political implementation of Peru’s NDC. In this regard Peru aims at a 20% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions until 2030 and increased capacities for adaptation. The project strengthened MINAM's coordinating role. Priority elements for this purpose are the creation of institutional arrangements for a far-sighted implementation of the NDC at national and subnational level, the support of sector ministries and subnational governments in integrating mitigation and adaptation measures in strategies, policies and operational processes, as well as the development of a comprehensive monitoring system. Improved political processes ensure the sustainable implementation of the NDC, particularly in regard to Peru’s OECD accession process. Project results will be shared in international NDC fora. The project thus contributes to Peru’s endeavour for increased NDC ambitions, which is coupled to international financing.
