Peru is suffering the impacts of climate change more than most.

Droughts are drying up precarious water sources and half a million-people living in low lying areas, are becoming increasingly vulnerable to floods. Public infrastructure projects, like bridges and roads, can be the first to fall victim to these climactic stresses.

The government is taking action, by incorporating risk reduction measures in the planning of public investment projects across the country. Between 2011 and 2015, they screened the plans of sectors such as, agriculture, energy, and transport, to make sure future climate risks were being taken into account.

By building in climate change adaptation from the outset, Public Investment Projects are now reducing risk for all.
