Studying glacier retreat to meet its challenges

01.11.2011 - 31.12.2015

The retreat of Andean glaciers has accelerated in recent years. Supported by the SDC, Swiss and Peruvian experts are working together to document the phenomenon. At the end of the chain, the rural people of Peru are seeing their daily lives disrupted by the glacier retreat. It is, then, essential that they be included in discussions about the risks.

Exchanging knowledge and experience to protect Andean forest ecosystems

01.11.2011 - 31.12.2019

The forests of the Andes are valuable in a variety of ways: they store and purify water, provide protection against natural hazards, and absorb environmentally harmful greenhouse gases. With the ANFOR project, the SDC is contributing to the long-term protection of Andean forests.

Support to Climate Change Management (GestionCC )-Phase 2

01.12.2018 - 31.05.2021

All countries are faced with the challenge of translating the landmark Paris Agreement on Climate Change at the national level. Switzerland and Peru have both innovated in setting up the governance structures needed to tackle climate change. This project aims to improve Peru’s ability to successfully implement its commitments under the Paris Agreement[1] and to share its experience in Latin America and globally in order to raise ambition in climate change adaptation and mitigation.

Climate and Clean Air in Latin American Cities Plus Programme (CALAC+)

25.11.2016 - 28.02.2021

CALAC+ supports clean air strategies in Latin American metropolises fostering normative and technological changes towards application of soot-free engines in public urban transport systems and off-road machinery. The reduction of air pollutants that are both an important impediment to sustainable development and a key contributor to climate change will be achieved by means of, targeted capacity building, sharing experiences and curbing private sector engagement in clean air issues.


Scaling-up SuizAgua Peru and Chile

01.10.2016 - 29.02.2020

Corporate Water Footprint (WF) frameworks in Chile and Peru animate private companies to use and manage water in a sustainable manner. Civil society is made aware of sustainable water cultures by behavioural change campaigns and by being part of watershed collective actions with the private sector. Cooperation among SuizAgua Colombia, Peru and Chile and with other partners ensures further outreach of the project in Latin America with the help of an active community of practice sharing gained knowledge.

CLIMANDES 2 - Servicios Climáticos con Énfasis en los Andes en Apoyo a las Decisiones

01.01.2016 - 31.03.2019

An indispensable cornerstone for achieving effective adaptation and reducing the impacts of climate variability is the availability of efficient and reliable climate services. On the basis of the achievements to date, the second phase of CLIMANDES will continue contributing to the development of the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) in the Andean region. Improved climate services will support climate-smart decisions in the key economic agricultural sector, from which the poorest segments of the population and societies at large will be able to benefit.


GLACIARES+: Risk management and Productive use of water from melting glaciers

01.09.2015 - 31.12.2019

The Lima Call for Climate Action adopted during COP20 in Lima stresses the urgency for fast-track adaptation and building resilience in the developing world; climate risk management plays a key role. Glacial retreat triggers natural hazards and puts at risk water supply and key economic activities such as hydropower generation – globally impacting hundreds of millions of people. Lessons from Peru will be valuable input for the global dialogue the urgently needs evidence-based practical experience in risk management and successful adaptation in glaciated basins.


Rethinking Sanitation Systems: Resource Recovery and Safe Reuse (RR&R)

01.05.2015 - 31.03.2020

Building on the research results of the first phase, this project will directly address the combined challenges of making resource recovery and reuse a viable business opportunity and implementing Resource Recovery and Safe Reuse (RR&R) businesses in Kampala and Lima. At the same time the project will reduce public health and environmental risks associated with reuse and pave the way for scaling up Sanitation Safety Planning (SSP) at the global level.

The SABA Water and Sanitation Experience: Boosting Impact at Global Scale (SABA+)

01.12.2014 - 30.11.2018

Many countries transitioning to a higher economic status still struggle on the water and sanitation component. In countries where water supply or sanitation have been installed, aggregate outcomes tend to mask that the quality of services is poor, that inequalities are increasing and improvements in access do often not reach those groups who suffer most. Thus, new models of intervention and financing strategies are required for such countries.. Through this new initiative, and by finalizing a unique scaling-up process in Peru and replicating it in post-conflict areas of Colombia, SDC will also enrich the global debate on the fulfillment of the SDGs and the gradual exercise of the human right to water with a new model of intervention and a new financing strategy.

Climate change in Peru – Peruvian population learning to manage the consequences of climate change

01.05.2013 - 30.06.2017

Climate change is a great obstacle to development. In many places, it is jeopardising the progress that has been achieved to date. The Andean highlands of Peru are heavily affected by climate change. That is why the SDC is supporting a project in the country to secure the livelihoods of poor rural communities, and to strengthen their resilience to the effects of shifting weather patterns.
