The variations in temperature and rainfall regime in the Andes caused by climate change are creating imbalance in our ecology; generating an impact on agricultural and livestock activities, on food security and living conditions.
The Adaptation to Climate Change Program - PACC PERU is a response to this problem; it is a Peruvian-Swiss bilateral cooperation initiative of the Peruvian Ministry of Environment (MINAM) and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
The Regional Governments of Apurimac and Cusco lead its implementation which is facilitated by the Consortium Helvetas Swiss Intercooperation, Libelula and The Study Center and Disaster Prevention (PREDES).
Our efforts are aimed at achieving sustainable development and, in this context, reduce vulnerability to climate change of rural population as a direct step in the fight against poverty.
Our purpose is to contribute on consolidating a life base and reduce vulnerability to climate change of social strata in poverty and extreme poverty in areas prioritized by the Program, thus reducing migration due to environmental affectations caused by climate change.
