Lima COP20 | CMP 10 / National Contributions / The public consultation process

The public consultation process


Peru has pledged to engage all stakeholders and the citizenship in general in the response to address climate change. Thus, Contributions are an opportunity to listen proposals of the public sector, private sector, NGOs, Indigenous peoples’ associations, women organizations, universities, youth organizations and civil society.

At least 4 informative meetings will be held during the INDCs preparation process, which will allow adding stakeholders’ opinions and inputs. Furthermore, a public consultation will be conducted through a form that would be available in MINAM’s website, which will allow collecting inputs, observations and proposals from all sectors and stakeholders.

This space will have all INDC-related information of Peru, aiming at providing clarity, transparency and understanding to the process, trying to become a public space that can be freely accessed, which will allow watching the country’s endeavors to fight climate change.
