Peru’s Multi-Stakeholder Platform

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 CommitteeWith a change in government in 2018, the MSP changed several governmental representatives, including the 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 dialogue processes to engage with local stakeholders in conflict areas, to create Shared Value Platforms in mining areas.
