Peru: Development of the National Strategy on Climate Change

 

Assignment: Technical assistance to coordinate the preparation process for the development of the National Strategy on Climate change  

Based in Seoul, The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) is an intergovernmental organization founded to support and promote a model of economic growth known as "green growth", which targets key aspects of economic performance such a poverty reduction, job creation, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability. GGGI works with countries around the world, building their capacity and working collaboratively on green growth policies that can impact the lives of millions. The organization partners with countries, multilateral institutions, government bodies, and private sector to help build economies that grow strongly and are more efficient and sustainable in the use of natural resources, less carbon intensive, and more resilient to climate change.

The NDC Partnership (NDCP) is providing financial support to the Ministry of Environment (MINAM) for the updating of the National Determined Contributions (NDC) on mitigation and adaptation. Within this framework, MINAM is supported by the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) to update the country’s NDCs. One of the priority activities is to carry out modelling exercises, incorporating new mitigation measures (Phase 1), as well as further analysis (Phase 2), in order to develop a Low-GHG Emissions Long-Term Development Strategy. 

In this context, the Peruvian government has an important instrument that seeks to guide and promote national actions against climate change, its National Strategy on Climate Change (ENCC), approved in 2015 and in force until the year 2021, so it must be updated. 

The new climate change strategy will be based on a technical study for carbon neutrality in Peru by 2050, currently under development, and the National Adaptation Plan, which is in a mature phase of development. In addition, it will consider the progress made in recent years such as the Paris Agreement and the framework law on climate change as well as the progress in the Peruvian NDCs. 

In this sense, the present technical assistance aims to coordinate the preparation process for the development of the National Strategy on Climate change.
