Read the details of the Intended and Nationally Determined Contribution (INDCs) presented by Peru


On the occasion of the UN Summit on Sustainable Development, held in New York, Peru submits its Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) in compliance with international agreements generated during the COP 20, held in Lima in December last year.

Read all the details of iNDC presented by Peru:

  • In its mitigation component, the proposal states a 30% reduction of the greenhouse gas emissions that Peru would have in 2030 if the current pace and trend of national emissions continued. Out of this total, 20% will be implemented through public and private domestic resources (unconditional proposal), and the remaining 10%, would be conditional upon obtaining cooperation and financing facilities from the international community (conditional proposal). Proposed mitigation actions cover the sectors of land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF), agriculture, energy, industrial processes and solid waste.
  • In its adaptation to climate change component, the country has pointed out targets that it needs to meet to reduce vulnerability levels in priority areas: water (water resources), agriculture, fisheries, forestry and health. Additionally, planned work in five cross-cutting areas will contribute to achieving the adaptation objectives: disaster risk management, resilient public infrastructure, poor and vulnerable populations, gender and multiculturalism and private investment promotion.
  • The country called for the participation of relevant sectors in industrial production, energy, forestry, agriculture, transportation, solid waste and wastewater (crosscutting sectors), and civil society to formulate the proposal in both components. Thus, the INDCs are built upon a sound information base, aligned to plans, programs and instruments; and are the result of an intense participatory process that included nationwide public consultation with representatives of civil society, NGOs, private sector, academia, youth, trade unions, associations, and regional and local governments.
  • The political support required for implementing the national proposal has been guaranteed through the participation of ministers and vice-ministers in a multi-sectoral commission, approved by Supreme Decree, which had the task of preparing the Technical Report containing the national proposal being presented to the world today.
  • In the coming years, gradual implementation of this proposal will continue promoting development, as well as formulation and implementation of complementary and synergistic mitigation and adaptation actions to meet national and international ethical responsibilities. Besides, it will maintain a highly competitive economy according to emerging global trends. Societal and environmental benefits of efficient and inclusive productive activities and sustainable use of natural resources are maximized in this process.
  • The proposal responds to national circumstances and capacities, and is aligned with the recently approved National Strategy on Climate Change and with national economic development, poverty reduction and social inclusion goals.
