The Peruvian territory shows a great variety of landscapes: from the plain along the Pacific coast to the Andes cordillera, to the Amazon rainforest to the east which, by extension, is the third in the world, (after Brazil and Congo). At environmental level, it has to face various problems such as deforestation, (1% per year), desertification, soil erosion, air pollution in urban centers, pollution of rivers and coastal waters.

The collaboration between MASE and Peru began in 2016 due to the Memorandum of Understanding which establishes cooperation in the field of climate change vulnerability, risk assessment, adaptation and mitigation. In 2018, the Supporting NDC’ s implementing in Peru project was approved, which aims to achieve the mitigation and adaptation objectives adopted in the context of the Paris Agreement, (NDC – Nationally Determined Contributions).

Today we are working on the signing of the new Memorandum of Understanding to continue the started collaboration.
