So it was mentioned in the plenum discussion following the presentation by José Luis Ruiz concerning “the methodology for the design and identification of the states of facilitating factors of financing climate” the issue of connecting and distributing responsibilities for implementation and financing of projects on different governmental levels (national, regional, local).

Furthermore was emphasized in a following presentation on the topic “Issues and guidelines for funding of iNDCs of Peru” how financing and donors for adaptation processes for Peru were available, however, the challenge consisted in distributing those means to the respective responsible location.

In an elaboration and following penal discussion on the Landscape approach and policy instruments of the agricultural industry, the importance of agriculture and forests was emphasized, as those sectors were heavily affected by CC but nevertheless crucial to securing the alimentation of the country. It was further mentioned that regional governments were to be more prepared and their agricultural sectors has to be strengthened to ensure future alimentation.

Lastly, not only in the presentation by Marco Llanos on the national program for forest conservation in favor of CC mitigation, was the significance of the countries’ forests highlighted. The fight against deforestation, so Llanos, was already carried out by a great number of players, which among the regional governments, NGOs and local indigenous communities also include the private sector. The latter, however, had to become more active in order to prevent deforestation. The speaker suggested the launching of seals of quality, which were bound to certain production regulations (such as in this case engagement in the fight against deforestation), in order to provide a practical incentive for companies to become more active in forest conservation.

Cusco’s InterCLIMA event this year interactively offered information on the governmental programs for CC adaptation in Peru, as well as provided an issue/solution-oriented platform to discuss current approaches.It successfully pointed to the high relevance of forests and agriculture in the process of adaptation and mitigation of Climate Change in Peru.
