NDC Peru: support to the implementation of the National Climate Change Strategy

The Ministry of Environment (MINAM) coordinates the technical and political implementation of Peru’s NDC. Peru aims at a 30% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (40% with international support) until 2030 and increased capacities for adaptation. In the context of this project, MINAM is strengthened in its coordinating role. Priority elements for this purpose are the creation of institutional arrangements for the coordinated implementation of the NDC at national and subnational level, the support to sector ministries and subnational governments to improve the enabling conditions for the NDC implementation, as well as the establishment of a transparency framework for mitigation (MRV) and adaptation (M&E) measures. A special focus is strengthening the role of indigenous organizations regarding the implementation of NDC measures. Project results and experiences are shared in international NDC forums. The project assumes the role of the IKI interface project in Peru.
