Project context, objectives and description

The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC) is responsible for the mitigation measures related to transportation. One such measure is the National Scrapping Program and Vehicle Renewal measure, which consists of scrapping and renovating obsolete vehicles to remove them from circulation, or renewing them with more efficient technologies, through incentives. Currently, the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) is in coordination with MTC regarding the designation of a fund of USD 30 million for overall the execution of a freight transport scrapping program whose disbursement could begin in November if the entire justification process is completed by June for budget assignment. Disbursement will begin in 2019 or 2020 and the main task at present confronting MTC is the justification and design of the program. 

The project objective is to support the Ministry of Transport and Communications in the design of a national-level freight vehicle scrapping program for NDC implementation, improved road safety and vehicle formalization. This project is aligned with IO2.Increased green growth investment flows which enable partner governments to implement green growth policies. 

The project will consist of 2 stages: 

GGGI will support MTC to structure the scrapping program for the initial disbursement from the Ministry of Economy and Finance. Stage 1 envisages two key activities: (1) development of rationale for the scrapping program by synthesizing the existing information, and formulation of impact indicators (2) initial design of the program (scope and structure) and timeline for implementation. 

Type of services provided, and results achieved

Impact: Peru reduces GHG emissions and achieves its NDC commitments through removal of old freight vehicles nationwide through effective vehicle scrapping programs.
