In response to the high vulnerability of Peru’s Andes region to climate change, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) in collaboration with the Peruvian Ministry of Environment has initiated a programme on climate change adaptation (PACC – Programa de Adaptación al Cambio Climático) in the Cusco and Apurimac regions of the Peruvian Andes.
The PACC is implemented by a consortium led by Intercooperation, supported by Universities in Peru, and a Swiss scientific consortium, that includes Meteodat, Agroscope, the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research WSL-SLF, the University of Geneva, and is led by the University of Zurich.
List of partners:
• Helvetas Swiss Intercooperation
