Graduating Country

With over 50 percent of its territory covered by forest, Peru has abundant natural resources that serve as the backbone of its economy. Decades of resource-driven growth have degraded the environment, resulting in water and air pollution, soil erosion and deforestation, affecting all segments of society, particularly the most vulnerable. The economic and employment fallout resulting from the COVID-19 crisis has added to these challenges. Peru joined PAGE in 2013 and is now a Graduating Country.

The partnership in Peru has contributed to the OECD Declaration on Green Growth and progress towards SDGs 4 (Quality Education), 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure), 10 (Reduced Inequalities), 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production), 13 (Climate Action) and 17 (Partnership for the Goals).
