Some of the collaborative work being undertaken by the German government in Peru includes working together for the conservation of biodiversity, and addressing climate change. Additionally, conserving forests and protecting the most vulnerable populations are part of the essential work between the two nations, German Ambassador to the country Jörg Ranau said.
In an exclusive conversation with Miguel Ángel Beretta, PAGE Peru’s representative, the ambassador explained that important projects on solid waste segregation are being developed in Ayacucho and sustainable use of forests in Ucayali.
“We will continue to work with PAGE Peru and we want to cooperate and contribute to meeting the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) in Peru. The German government is committed to working alongside countries that are on the cutting edhe in the fight against climate change like Morocco and Peru,” said the Ambassador.
