Adapting Public Investment to Climate Change in Latin America (IPACC II)
Objective and activities
Between 2011 and 2015, in partnership with the Peruvian Ministries (MEF and MINAM), the predecessor project IPACC I was executed, achieving the implementation of climate risk analyses in the national procedures for public investment. Thereby, in order to exploit the Peruvian advances and expand their experiences, IPACC II was born. On the one hand this project will strengthen the capacities in Peru. On the other hand this innovative approach shall be adapted and transferred to other countries of Latin America, specifically to Brazil and Colombia. This project contributes considerably to reducing climate induced economic, social and ecologic damages and thereby leads to a better adaptation to climate change.
