Peru's updated NDC targets 30% GHG emissions cut by 2030

The government of Peru has updated its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC). The country pledges to limit its greenhouse gas (GH) emissions to 208.8 MtCO2eq in 2030, which represents a non-conditional reduction of 30% compared to a business-as-usual (BAU) scenario, using its domestic resources. The GHG emission cut target could be further increased to 40%, or 179 MtCO2eq, with international support through bilateral, multilateral cooperation and implementation of mechanisms under the Paris Agreement. In addition, the updated policy document identifies mitigation measures for the 2021-2030 period, as well as strategic tasks on adaptation.

In 2015, Peru issued its first NDC, setting a GHG emissions reduction target of 30% in 2030, compared to a BaU scenario, with emissions capped at 300 MtCO2eq in 2030. CO2 emissions from energy use in Peru increased by 72% between 2007 and 2016 and then decreased by 5% to 49 MtCO2 in 2018.
