Experience Spotlight- Peru – Creation of a Multisectoral Working Group to prepare the implementation of the NDC

Climate action has become increasingly relevant in Peru1. From the highest level it is understood as a key area for the general well-being of the nation and an opportunity to transform towards a low-carbon and climate-resilient economy. Consequently, as a first strategic action, in 2016 the Peruvian State established the temporary “Multisectoral Technical Group” (Grupo de Trabajo Multisectorial- GTM-NDC) in charge of generating technical information to guide the implementation of Nationally Determined Contribution. The GTM-NDC was led by the Ministry of Environment (MINAM) who is responsible for the design and implementation of integral climate change management. The mandate of the GTM-NDC was to generate technical information to prioritize activities and investments necessary to achieve the national goal of reducing GHG emissions by 30% by 2030.2
