What is WWF doing?

WWF-Peru has three lines of action that articulate the work with local governments: the platform MiCiudad, the GEF project "Support for the National Platform for Sustainable Cities and Climate Change in Lima" and the WWF Cities Challenge (or OPCC in English).
 

How do we do this?

The platform MiCiudad was created by WWF Peru in Alliance with Periferia and AMPE. This platform promotes the construction of livable, sustainable and resilient cities in Peru, articulating with decision makers, civil society and academia.

It works in three lines of action:

  • Urban data: research about the urban situation.
  • Urban solutions: dissemination of good practices and initiatives for sustainable urban management.
  • Projects of shared value: Bringing together academia, the public sector, civil society and local governments,
The Project "Support for the National Platform for Sustainable Cities and Climate Change in Lima" develops studies associated with issues of climate change, risks, coastal adaptation, water management, biodiversity, among others. This project carries out a pilot in the city of Lima, financed by from the Global Environment Fund (GEF) and hand in hand with MINAM and IDB.

Finally, the WWF Cities Challenge collaborates with municipalities at the national level promoting climate management through its participation in a biannual competition where local governments are invited to report their climate action plans, receiving feedback through the evaluation of its strategies and actions to fulfill the Paris Agreement.

 

 

Who do we work with?

The different projects aimed for local goverments are worked hand in hand with the provincial and district municipalities, as well as central government institutions such as the Ministry of the Environment, the Ministry of Housing, Construction and Sanitation, SERFOR; civil society institutions, GEF and IDB; the academy and civil society. In the case of MiCiudad, the main partner is Periferia.
