NDC Status

Peru submitted its revised NDC in December 2020.

Key highlights from the NDC
  • Peru established more ambition in its updated NDC, increasing its mitigation goal from 30% to 40% against the BAU scenario in 2030 and indicating an absolute target number in terms of the amount of CO2 equivalent (not exceeding 179 MtCO2e by 2030).
  • It also increased ambition in adaptation by incorporating two new priority areas: tourism and transport (in addition to water, agriculture, fishing and aquaculture, forest, and health).
  • Adaptation and mitigation measures in the NDC consider the incorporation of gender, intercultural and intergenerational approaches to ensure equity and inclusion.
