Response
Emergency measures in the short term (a few months to one year) to address concerns that have directly emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic and may include forced action.
Recovery
Socioeconomic measures in the medium term (one to a few years) with an environmental and climate focus to “build back better” from COVID-19, and usually involves planned, intentional action.
Redesign
Paradigm shifts and measures in the long term (more than a few years to a few decades) toward redesigning current socioeconomic and sociocultural systems to be sustainable and resilient.

1.Climate mitigation measures

  • Transition to renewable energy

    Recovery
    Electricity supply with renewable energy resources in areas not connected to the grid: proposes to provide the electricity service to users located in areas not connected to the grid using renewable energy resources (RER) as a source of generation, by installing photovoltaic systems (solar panels) in households. Some benefits are: i) improve the quality of life of rural communities, and ii) promotes new jobs in the installation and maintenance of the systems.

  • Transition to renewable energy

    RecoveryRedesign
    Combination of renewable energy: proposes to increase the participation of Renewable Energy Resources (RER) in the national energy matrix by 6.8% in 2030, reducing the proportion of energy produced based on the burning of fossil fuels. In addition, it includes the implementation of hydroelectric plants with an installed capacity of less than 20 MW. Some benefits are: i) promote new jobs, and ii) development of the national industry and economy.

    IDENTIFICATION, CATEGORIZATION AND PRIORITIZATION OF DEGRADED AREAS
    The natural infrastructure gap (brecha de infraestrutura natural) is seen as an opportunity for regional investments in the recovery of degraded ecosystems. The degraded areas are updated annually, since 2018, generating proposals for investment in measures and projects that can be proposed and implemented within the framework of the economic reactivation before COVID19.
    Degraded ecosystems, at the national level, that require recovery comprise 17.5 million hectares; of which 4.16 million hectares have been prioritized for the Environment Sector, in order to recover the ecosystem services they provide.
    Maps of Degraded Areas has been developing at the regional level, in conjunction with the Regional Governments of the departments of Cusco, Huancavelica and Moquegua.

    INDENTIFICATION OF FAVORABLE CONDITIONS FOR THE OCCURRENCE OF FIRES IN VEGETATION (CFOI, for its acronym in Spanish). CFOI is a powerful tool for identifying the most vulnerable areas to wildfires nationwide. It has been incorporated into the Fire Risk Assessment Guide in joint work with CENEPRED (national institution), for preventive action against fire risks nationwide.
    The MINAM provides permanent information service for the preventive management of wildfires (National, Regional and Local):
    - The regional and local governments have monthly CFOI reports, for making preventive decisions in the event of the probability of wildfires. This should help to generate preventive measures to reduce the impact on respiratory diseases.
    - Studies about the favorable conditions to the wildfire occurrence are monthly published nationwide.
    - Application for the registration of fires at regional and local level, allows the pre-preventive management of fires.

    It is a participatory and concerted, also dynamic, and flexible process for the identification of different alternatives for the sustainable use of a given territory in different spheres: national, regional, and local (Article No. 1 DS 087-2004-PCM). Zoning provides basic information to understand which are the development poles, as well as the potential for economic activities according to the conditions of the territory.
    Once the Ecological and Economic Zoning is approved, it becomes a technical and guiding instrument for the sustainable use of a territory and its natural resources, highly useful for decision-making and the management of the territory by its authorities, civil society and any citizen who needs to carry out any activity in the territory.
    The ZEE includes categories of use that result from the evaluation of the Ecological Economic Units (UEE) through which the various options for sustainable use of territory are identified. The categories of use to be used in the ZEE process will be the following: (1) Productive zones, (2) Ecological protection and conservation zones, (3) Special treatment zones, (4) Recovery zones and (5) Urban or industrial zones.
    The purpose of the ZEE is to guide decision-making on the best uses of the territory, considering the needs of the population that inhabits it and in harmony with the environment (Article No. 2 D.S. 087-2004-PCM).
