The Framework law no 30754 serves as a legislative instrument for the 2014 National Strategy on Climate Change, and effectively made Peru’s Paris Agreement pledge legally binding.
The law emphasises the need for climate adaptation, but also describes how mitigation efforts should be pursued: carbon sequestration in forests, sustainable transport, waste management, switching to renewable energy and energy efficiency in industry.
The law also created a high-level commission, the Comisión de Alto Nivel de Cambio Climático, which can propose adaptation and mitigation measures to the Peruvian Government, as well as suggesting changes to the NDC. The Ministry of Environment is mandated to report annually to the Parliament on the progress made in implementing adaptation and mitigation measures (MINAM, 2018).
