Support of Nationally Intended Determined Contributions (INDCs) in Peru
As of: August 2020
Objective and activities
The project supported the Peruvian government in developing its “Intended Nationally Determined Contributions” (INDCs). The project measured comprised providing technical and policy advice to the Peruvian environment ministry in preparing the country's contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions as part of a future global climate change agreement. On the technical level, based on analyses and studies relevant data was generated and prepared to feed into the policy process. On the policy-institutional level, support was provided to foster the dialogue between relevant ministries and specify the details of the national contribution. Advice included supporting the first steps for implementing the agreements.

- Advised the Peruvian government successfully in prioritising sectors for the formulation of the country’s INDC. To date, six sectors have been selected: LULUCF (land use, land-use change and forestry), agriculture, waste management, energy, transport and industrial processes.
- Assessment of the LULUCF, waste management and energy sectors regarding the feasibility of Peru’s voluntary mitigation targets of 2011. Development of proposals for mitigation measures in all sectors, based on the nationals program PlanCC and in consideration of priorities and existing sectoral plans (e.g. NAMAs).
- Multi-sectoral commission established at the ministerial level which verified and accredited the INDC at national level. Timely submission of the Peruvian INDCs to the UNFCCC.
- Supporting the Peruvian environment ministry with the presentation of the national INDC process and with the exchange within Latin America as part of the COP-20 in Lima in December 2014.
