Planning for climate change in Peru

Case Summary: 

PlanCC (Planning for Climate Change) is a joint initiative of the Peruvian public and private sectors together with civil society and academia with the aim to analyse the feasibility of transitioning to a low-carbon economy.

The process is organized in three phases including: (1) developing mitigation options and long-term scenarios for 2021 and 2050; (2) designing plans, policies and instruments that are “climate friendly”; and (3) implementing these measures in order to catalyse a long-term transformation and to provide an enabling environment for low-carbon investment. The institutional set-up of PlanCC guarantees that people with relevant skills and institutions with relevant mandates are connected to jointly develop and pursue a Peruvian low-carbon development path. Scientific evidence generated within PlanCC feeds directly into the decision-making process of the national government.

The initiative is supported by the Mitigation Action Plans & Scenarios (MAPS) Programme which is collaboration amongst developing countries to establish the evidence base for long-term transition to robust economies that are both carbon efficient and climate resilient.
