NDC Peru: support to the implementation of the National Climate Change Strategy
As of: August 2020
Objective and activities
The Peruvian Ministry of the Environment (MINAM) coordinates the technical and political implementation of the NDC, which is aimed at an emission reduction of 20% and goals for increasing the adaptation capacities. The project strengthens the coordinating role of the MINAM and the specific NDC implementation in the energy and forestry sectors. Thanks to the support of the project, institutional structures for a far-sighted implementation of NDCs at national and sub-national levels will be created and mitigation and adaptation measures will be integrated into strategies, regulations and operational processes. The project also helps to establish a comprehensive monitoring system, and improved policy processes ensure the sustainable implementation of the NDC, particularly in terms of Peru’s OECD accession process. Project experiences will also be shared in international NDC forums. In this way, a major contribution will be made to Peru’s effort to increase its NDC ambitions, which is coupled to international financing.
