Peru is among the South American countries suffering most acutely from the effects of climate change. However, due to its rich biodiversity and its status as the second-largest neighbour of the Amazon rainforest, the country also plays a special role in climate action initiatives.

The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is currently establishing a climate partnership (P+) with ten selected partner countries, including Peru. To create the necessary framework for the initiative, Peru has implemented a climate governance structure and developed a national climate financing strategy in recent years. Four German ministries and Peru’s Ministry of the Environment signed the political agreement in November 2022.

The climate partnership is a key pillar of Germany’s ambitious and comprehensive climate foreign policy. It will combine greenhouse gas reductions in the areas of energy and transportation with forest and nature conservation efforts. At the same time, it attaches importance to ensuring a socially just transition.


The Peruvian and German governments are successfully implementing the climate partnership in Peru.


The climate partnership will bring together the Nationally Determined Contributions and the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda. This is aimed at promoting a just transition and more ambitious climate action. The project manages the climate partnership’s coordination office and facilitates the implementation process in Peru in the following ways:

  • It supports climate policy dialogue between the two countries. To this end, it develops core messages regarding exchange with other donors and initiatives. It also coordinates political alliances for participation in international climate forums.
  • On request by either government, it drafts technical analyses and strategies for implementing the P+, such as an analysis of Germany’s overall contribution to climate change in Peru.
  • It encourages the involvement of the scientific community, the business sector and civil society in current discussions in order to safeguard the networking process in future.
