Peru’s Sustainable Development and Environmental Policies

Peru has implemented new environmental policies that aim to make more efficient use of land already deforested while ensuring that more trees do not fall. The “production-protection” approach is the result of collaboration between Peru’s government and NGOs and aims to provide a unifying strategy for the country’s forests. The policies regulate and promote public investment in ecosystem services, approve a National Forestry and Climate Change Strategy, and urge more research to find a variety of possible outcomes that could lead to more sustainable development. However, implementation will take place at the state and local level, and the new presidential administration appears to be focused on economic growth.

Peru’s progress in advancing climate policy has been slow, and the lack of sustainable infrastructure will only become more evident in the near future. The land use, land-use change, and forestry sector has consistently been a significant source of emissions in Peru, and deforestation remains a critical problem. The government has introduced energy efficiency labels for household appliances and a Sustainable Construction Code to improve technical criteria for the design and construction of buildings. Peru could reach its unconditional NDC target under current policies, without the need for additional, more ambitious policies. However, the political instability in the country is slowing down policy development.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) collaborates with Peru to strengthen environmental management and compliance with environmental laws in both countries. The cooperation seeks to promote efficient environmental oversight and the use of sustainable practices, contributing to the protection of human health and the natural environment. EPA works with Peruvian Ministries and Agencies, such as the Agency for Environmental Assessment and Enforcement, to achieve these goals. The collaboration is based on the U.S.-Peru Trade Promotion Agreement signed in 2006. In conclusion, Peru has implemented new environmental policies that aim to make more efficient use of land already deforested while ensuring that more trees do not fall. However, implementation will take place at the state and local level, and the new presidential administration appears to be focused on economic growth. Peru’s progress in advancing climate policy has been slow, and deforestation remains a critical problem. The EPA collaborates with Peru to strengthen environmental management and compliance with environmental laws in both countries, promoting efficient environmental oversight and the use of sustainable practices.
