Peru committed to a 30% reduction in its emissions below business as usual by 2030. Trough a series of multi-sectoral working sessions, Peru has identified a roadmap and related climate actions to meet its target. The country's updated NDC includes 96 measures for adaptation in 5 priority areas, and 62 other measures for mitigation in energy, transport, agriculture, land use and forestry, industrial processes and solid waste management.
This webinar will provide a brief overview of the topic of green bonds, barriers for international debt capital markets to invest in a consistent manner into emerging markets, and how aggregation of project assets and refinancing through proceeds of green bonds can accelerate NDC implementation.
The webinar will highlight country experiences and lessons learned in strengthening governance frameworks for NDC implementation and tracking. It will focus in particular on how these frameworks are integrating sub-national governments and actors and how countries have overcome specific challenges.
