GGGI’s objective in Peru is to support the government in the development of institutional, technical and financial capacities to implement national policy mechanisms for green growth, according to the priorities established in the National Competitiveness and Productivity Plan, National Environmental Law and other environmental and climate efforts and commitments. GGGI supports public institutions at the national and regional levels to achieve their green growth ambitions by implementing strategies such as greening financial systems, reducing deforestation through agroforestry concessions, and promoting circular economy through waste management and valorization.

Peru has been one of the world’s fastest growing economies over the last decade. In an effort to balance economic growth with the 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 and Formalization Council (CNCF) that tasks 12 sectors with improving efficiency in productive processes and natural resource use. Together with the government’s Green Growth Guidelines and Green Finance Roadmap, the implementation of these framework documents will drive new sources of growth, innovation and job creation and chart the way for the country to achieve its NDC and SDG commitments.
While Peru has committed to climate action and sustainability at the national level, its implementation requires intersectoral coordination and technical support. To this end, GGGI’s Peru program is supporting the government in implementing tasks related to specific actions in priority areas of NDCs and OECD recommendations of land use and water, while ensuring synergies between different strategies in these important sectors. Furthermore, GGGI supports green growth implementation at national, regional and local levels, in both urban and rural areas, and in sectors related to sustainable landscapes, urban waste, green finances, and climate action.
