Sustainable financing and support of water resource management in Peru

As of: November 2019

Objective and activities

The project strengthens the adaptive capacity and resilience of vulnerable communities and the conservation of important ecosystems in Peru by establishing water management and long-term financing mechanisms. This is achieved through five main outputs: 1.) Establishment of “water councils” that take participatory decisions about water management schemes in defined watersheds and are supported by key actors; 2.) Establishment and/or strengthening of three water funds as sustainable financing bodies for adaptation measures; 3.)  Implementation of adaptation measures, including ecosystem-based measures, through private-public investments; 4.) Implementation of awareness raising campaigns for more efficient water usage; 5.) Capacity building of communities in disaster prevention and management
