Peru, Mexico, Ecuador and Brazil´ projects from the German development cooperation, implemented by GIZ, worked together to develop the “Guide for green recovery in Latin American cities”. By doing so, they became familiar with the concept of green recovery and features such projects should entail. This guide is based on evidence and insights gained on the field, presenting case studies from the water, energy, waste and transport sectors to enable the development of sustainable, resilient and carbon-neutral cities in Latin America.

The case studies systematized for Peru include the experience developed in the urban water sector by:

Empresa Prestadora de Servicios de Agua y Saneamiento (EPS) de Cusco – Sedacusco:

For the incorporation of climate protection measures in the operation of its services. This work was developed from 2015 to 2021, with the support of German development cooperation, implemented by GIZ, through WaCCliM.

La EPS de Ica – Emapica:

About the commercialization of raw wastewater in order to protect the environment, make efficient use of water and improve wastewater management, among others. This work was carried out between 2017 and 2019, with the support of German development cooperation, implemented by GIZ, through PROAGUA II.

It is important to note that the Guide was financed by the Innovation Fund of the Sectoral Network for Environmental Management and Rural Development in Latin America and the Caribbean – GADeR-LAC. More information about GADeR-LAC here.
