  • But they are concentrated in the Atlantic watershed where there is only one fourth of the population, whereas in the Pacific watershed there is only 2% of water availability for 70% of the population and produce 80% of the GDP
  • There is a flagrant need for improving the coordination of the use of water resources. As a response to this need the govermment engaged in a two year process to define a State Policy on water resources.The result was the approval of the State Policy No 33 on Water Resources,GWP proposed the establishment of a transectoral agreement to ensure its implementation.This agreement involves 13 ministries and the lobbying process is underway…a hard process that the outcomes indicators do not show.In the meantime, GWP selected Santa Eulalia sub-basin as a pilot initiative to put in practice effective transectoral interaction… but, why have we chosen this sub basin?
  • Because, on one side,this sub basin produces 50% of water and 70% of energy used in Lima… the largest city in Peru, with 10 million inhabitants.On the other hand, the upper Santa Eulalia basin, in addition to its great potential for water and energy supply, it shows very high levels of poverty and inequality. Its population endures water insecurity, food insecurity and energy insecurity, all exacerbated by increased vulnerability to the effects of climate change. We estimate that the immediate beneficiaries will be around 17,000people, of whomalmost 7,000 live in poverty.Amongst the indirect beneficiaries we consider Lima´s population and economic activities.
  • This slide is just to show that this initiative is following the same structure of the Water and Climate programmes, the only work package that is missing, is the one on transboundary water management.
  • To develop the programme document we carried out a couple of workshops. The first one in the sub-basin, with participation of national and local authorities, farmers communities and all those ones mentioned before. The second workshop was held to expand on the definition of activities and align the proposed activities to the structure of the W&C Programmes. All this information, generated in a very participatory manner, is being used in the preparation of the programme document.
  • Some expected results:Improved transectoral interaction will set an example for the rest of the country. The IWRM Plan for the Santa Eulalia sub-basinThe creation and strengthening of the Santa Eulalia sub-basin committeeEight (08) demonstration projects showing good adaptation practices and sharing lessons learned in other parts of the country.

    3. 3. 1. Background and national context PERÚ, country of contrasts Twentieth largest country in the world, 71% of the world's tropical glaciers, One of top 10 megadiverse countries, 6% of surface water in the world Water availability per person over 70 000 m3… but Glacial retreat during the last 35 years has resulted in a 22% loss of coverage Between the ten most vulnerable countries in the world…It presents four of the five characteristics of vulnerability recognized by the United States Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)
    4. 4. 1. Background and national context Atlantic watershed 74.6% of territory 26% of the population 97.4% of water availability 18% of the GDP Pacific watershed 21.8% of territory 70% of the population 2% of the water availability 80% of the GDP Titicaca watershed 3.8% of territory 4% of the population 0.6% of the water availability 2% of the GDP
    5. 5. 1. Background and national context Flagrant need of coordination water resources  State Policy #33 on water resources (August 2012) Establishment of transectoral agreement : “The integrated water resources management, in the framework of climate change adaptation” Ministries considered in the agreement: Health, Agriculture, Environment, Energy and Mining, Production, Housing, Infrastructure and Sanitation, Finance, Foreign Affairs, Education, Women and Vulnerable Populations Culture, Development and Social Inclusion  GWP selected Santa Eulalia sub-basin as a pilot initiative to put in practice effective transectoral interaction…
