Peru, EU discuss climate change and environment
Lima, Oct. 4.
Peru will continue to engage in activities under the EUROCLIMA+ program funded by the European Union.
The announcement was made during the Peru-EU Dialogue on Climate Change and Environment.
During the session, Peru presented its work on environmental regulation and inter-sectoral arrangements to meet its climate commitments under the Paris Agreement.
The Inca country outlined its priorities and thanked the European Union for its
response to natural disasters
caused by El Niño weather phenomenon.
On the other hand, the European Union noted
Peru's actions to address climate change
and stressed the need to achieve investment frameworks for the private sector.
Both Peru and the European Union affirmed the importance of an active high-level political dialogue, an agreement on climate change and articulated efforts ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP23).
EUROCLIMA+ promotes environmentally sustainable and more climate-resilient development in the Latin American region, in particular for the benefit of most vulnerable populations.
In its new phase, EUROLCIMA+ provides technical and financial support to the development and implementation of climate change adaptation and mitigation policies and facilitates regional policy dialogue and climate action.
EUROCLIMA+ will also support the strategies and objectives, which Latin American countries have committed themselves to in the context of the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement.
