Planning for climate change (PlanCC) in Peru
Planning for Climate Change (PlanCC) is a project led by the Peruvian Government that aims to build the technical and scientific basis, as well as capabilities to explore the feasibility of a “clean” or “low carbon” development in Peru and incorporate the approach of climate change in the country’s development plan.
The Phase I of PlanCC generated qualitative and quantitative evidence on possible climate change mitigation scenarios in Peru.
PlanCC raised an innovative process of participatory exploration and long term planning for sectorial mitigation options that could be implemented in Peru during 2021 and 2050. In addition of estimating the costs and potential for reducing emissions, co-benefits or indirect opportunities for society, environment and economy (e.g. alternative employment, reduction of pollution, among others)
PlanCC has a strong ministerial mandate. It is chaired by a Steering Committee formed by the Ministry of the Environment, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Economy and Finance and the National Center of Strategic Planning (CEPLAN).
PlanCC is part of the MAPS Programme (Mitigation Action Plans & Scenarios), which, in collaboration with developing countries (South Africa, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Peru) establishes the evidence base for a long-term transition to robust economies that are both carbon efficient and climate resilient.
Libelula is in charge of the technical coordination while Helvetas Swiss Intercooperation is the entity fund administrator. During Phase I, PlanCC received financial support from the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation(CIFF), the Switzerland Agency for Development and Cooperation (COSUDE), and the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN).
