Peru will participate for the first time in the World Summit on Climate Action, which will be held from September 12 to 14 in San Francisco, United States to promote effective actions against global warming.
This was announced by the Peruvian Ministry of Environment in a statement, explaining that the delegation will be led by minister Fabiola Muñoz, and the head of the National Service of Natural Protected Areas by the State (Sernanp), Pedro Gamboa.
“The two officials will present the actions and successful experiences developed in Peru to mitigate the effects of global warming, especially the Natural Heritage of Peru initiative”, said Correo.
Peru’s participation will highlight the efforts of the Peruvian state and non-governmental actors to consolidate the financial sustainability of protected natural areas and thus generate benefits for the Peruvian population.
The World Summit on Climate Action is a meeting convened by the Governor of California, James Brown, where business leaders, government officials, representatives of indigenous peoples, investors, artists and citizens of various countries converge.
The objective of the meeting is to strengthen and ensure the most ambitious global commitments to global warming, such as the Paris Agreement, and to accompany the deliberations of the Climate Week in New York and the COP24 in Poland.
