Development and Implementation of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) in the Housing sector

Canada’s Total Contribution: $3,500,000

Targeted Countries: Costa Rica Mexico Peru

Funding Period: 2011/2012, 2012/2013

Delivery Partner(s):

Description

Canada provided technical advice to countries to help them flesh out implementable mitigation actions in the Housing sector in Costa Rica, Mexico, and Peru.

Results/Expected Outcomes

Canadian support to this project lead to the development of a Low Carbon Housing Roadmap in each country designed to identify opportunities for action to realize emissions-savings and associated co-benefits from scale development of highly energy-efficient residential housing. Roadmaps were supported by capacity building activities, research studies, monitored pilot projects and by regional workshops including a co-benefits workshop and a financial forum.

Integrating a Climate Change Adaptation Focus into the Development and Implementation of Public Investment Projects in Peru: Pilot Project in a Highly Vulnerable Region

Canada’s Total Contribution: $312,315

Targeted Countries: Peru

Funding Period: 2012/2013

Delivery Partner(s):

Description

Canada provided support for the reduction of climate change vulnerability and the adaptation of vulnerable populations in Peru by supporting development of criteria and guidelines, and capacity, to facilitate integration of climate change adaptation criteria into public investment projects in Peru.

Results/Expected Outcomes

Key results to date include: strengthened institutional capacity of decision-makers and experts in the Regional Government of Junín to incorporate the climate change variable in project formulation for the Peruvian National Public Investments system, mainly in the agriculture sector; development of a public investment project proposal to be presented to the national system that incorporated climate change adaptation criteria; revised and updated Regional Climate Change Strategy; and, the formulation of three Ordinances and a Regional Decree, including on incorporation of climate change and adaptation variables in public investment projects.

Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola (USIL) Expansion Project

Canada’s Total Contribution: $1,500,000

Targeted Countries: Peru

Funding Period: 2011/2012

Delivery Partner(s):

Description

The Canadian Climate Fund for the Private Sector in the Americas (C2F) at the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) provided support to infrastructure expansion, investment in equipment, and creation of student loan fund for the Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola (USIL) in Peru. Founded in 1995 and headquartered in Lima, Peru, USIL is a socially inclusive private university that serves approximately 12,000 students and employs 2,300 academic and administrative staff. Approximately half of USIL’s students are women and approximately one quarter are young working adults. The project enables USIL to invest in low-carbon energy efficient building design and equipment in the construction of new campus facilities. These facilities will support improved access to quality higher education and broaden the socio-economic profile of the university’s student population to an additional 25,000 students. Canada’s contribution to this project supports the incorporation of more sustainable design and technologies in the university’s construction plans.

Results/Expected Outcomes

Canada’s investment in this project has facilitated the incorporation of more environmentally sustainable building design, through the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification process. To date, the project has made substantial progress on the construction of its Lima Norte campus building in Peru.

The expected intermediate outcomes of the project include pursuing LEED Gold certification for the Lima Norte building, which is expected to be one of the first LEED certified buildings in higher education in Peru and the first one achieving LEED Gold. As a result of the project, annual water savings of 43 percent and annual energy savings of 26 percent are both expected. It is also expected that the project will abate 600 metric tons of CO2 emissions per year.

Co-Financing/Mobilized Finance (CAD$): $77,500,000
Estimated GHG (metric tons of CO₂) Reduction Associated with Project (per year)Disclaimer *: 600

Sustainable and Efficient Management of Peru's Energy Resources

Canada’s Total Contribution: $3,000,000

Targeted Countries: Peru

Funding Period: 2012/2013

Delivery Partner(s):

Description

This project aims to strengthen the capacity of the Peruvian Government to plan and manage energy resources efficiently and in a sustainable manner. The initiative is relevant for Peru’s economic success, since its recent growth has been fuelled by the development and consumption of its large natural resource base, of which energy resources form an important part. Specifically, the project intends to support the implementation of the Peruvian National Energy Policy which aims to improve energy planning, enhance the use of renewable energy sources and strengthen the capacity of parastatal institutions involved in the sector. Key activities include: technical assistance to the Ministry of Energy and Mines in the design, implementation and staffing of an Energy Planning Unit; the assessment of the corporate governance framework of parastatal institutions; the creation of experts networks to enhance knowledge sharing on renewable energy between public institutions at central and regional levels.

Results/Expected Outcomes

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: Improved energy planning at the central and regional levels, taking into account socio-economic, environmental and gender equality considerations ; Improved efficiency and transparency in the management of relevant parastatal institutions in the energy sector; Improved integration by the Ministry of Energy and Mines of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency considerations in the national energy matrix.
