Peru has been one of the world’s fastest growing economies over the last decade. In an effort to balance economic growth with sustainable use of natural resources to increase competitiveness, Peru has developed a multi-sectoral agenda led by the Ministry of Economy and Finance’s National Competitiveness Council (CNC) that tasks 12 sectors with improving efficiency in productive processes and natural resource use.
Peru’s public sector currently has no systematized and uniform criteria for resource efficient purchases and no incentive structure to green its public purchases, which on average amount to $7-9 billion annually. GGGI’s role will be to develop the enabling policy framework for green procurement jointly with the MEF.
GGGI is also supporting the government in developing specific Action Plans in high priority areas of NDCs and OECD recommendations of land use and water, while ensuring synergies between different strategies in these important sectors.
