We rate Peru’s unconditional and conditional NDC targets “Insufficient”. The “Insufficient” rating indicates that Peru’s climate commitment in 2030 is not consistent with holding warming to below 2°C, let alone limiting it to 1.5°C as required under the Paris Agreement, and is instead consistent with warming between 2°C and 3°C. If all countries were to follow Peru’s approach, warming would reach over 2°C and up to 3°C. This means Peru’s climate commitment is at the least stringent end of what would be a fair share of global effort, and is not consistent with the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C limit, unless other countries make much deeper reductions and comparably greater effort.
If the CAT were to rate Peru’s projected emissions levels in 2030 under current policies, Peru would also be rated “Insufficient.”
