In Peru, transport represents 40% of the GHG emissions from the energy sector. What’s more, urban mobility is characterised by high social costs, such as health problems, fatal accidents, low quality of life, and considerable loss of productivity due to congestion. These negative effects are on the rise due to the country’s economic growth. This has led to the expansion of commercial activities and, simultaneously, to the development of the freight transport sector, mainly conducted by trucks.

The Peruvian Government, through its Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC), aims to transform and modernise the sector, while reducing its carbon footprint. In this context, the MTC leads the Sustainable Urban Transport NAMA – TRANSPerú, which aims at structural changes in six policy areas. With funding from the NAMA Facility a NAMA Support Project was commissioned in order to assist Peruvian institutions through financial and technical support. Furthermore, GIZ via the TRANSfer project supports the design and development of mitigation strategies in order to improve the efficiency of the freight transport sector.
