The 2030 WRG and the International Finance Corporation in Peru signed an agreement with the National Authority of Water (ANA) and the Ministry of Agriculture in April 2013 to formally establish a relationship to promote dialogue and collaboration as well as private sector participation on water resources management in the country.
The Steering Committee of the Multi-Stakeholder Platform (MSP), formed in 2014, comprises 25 members and serves as a sounding board for discussion and for the creation of working groups to implement agreed concept notes, programs, and projects. Initial members included the former President of Peru, Pedro Pablo Kuczyinski. During his tenure, he appointed Mercedes Castro, former Peru Sherpa to the UN High-Level Panel on Water, to represent him as the Chair of the MSP Steering Committee. He also appointed five ministers to serve on this Committee. With a change in government in 2018, the MSP changed several governmental representatives, includingthe Minister of Environment, the Minister of Mines and Energy, the President of the National Authority of Wastewater Services, and the Chief of the ANA. The Vice-Ministers of Environment and of Mines and Energy are also members of the Steering Committee. Other prominent members include representatives of the private sector, academia, NGOs, and international organizations.
The Steering Committee established the following working groups:
Works for Taxes, accelerating infrastructure investments;
Adaptation to climate change and green infrastructure, promoting green infrastructure with private sector and government;
Water Responsible Companies, raising awareness on water issues and private sector action through collaboration with government;
Guidelines for dialogueprocesses to engage with local stakeholders in conflict areas, to create Shared Value Platforms in mining areas.
The 2030 WRG has been working with several partners to contribute to the management of Peru’s water resources.
We have convened a Steering Committee with former Prime Ministers, Finance Ministers, Vice-Ministers from relevant water-using sectors, the Director of the ANA, CEOs of private companies, and high-level representatives from civil society, academia, and the donor community.
The 2030 Water Resources Group (2030 WRG) is a public, private, civil society partnership hosted by the World Bank Group. The partnership supports country-level collaboration designed to unite diverse groups with a common interest in the sustainable management of water resources.
Our global partners include bilateral agencies and governments (Swiss Development Cooperation, Swedish Development Cooperation, the governments of Hungary and Israel), private companies (Nestlé, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Dow Chemical, Ab InBev), development banks (IFC, World Bank, African Development Bank, Inter-American Development Bank), INGOs and IGPs (UNDP, GGGI, GWP, the World Economic Forum, BRAC and IUCN).
