Mitigation actions

Integrated Municipal Solid Waste Management Upgrade and Expansion
The project involves a solid wastes treatment plant and final disposal facility for material generated by the Chancay residents. Its infrastructure represents and important step forward with regard to environmental protection since greenhouse gases will no longer be produced and methane will be harvested for use as an energy source. The project conserves natural resources and at least in part reduces fossil fuel consumption in the fight against greenhouse gasproduced climate change. Participating Organizations: Ministry of the Environment Start year 2012

Agua para Todos Program
This program involves insuring that communities have access to facilities for potable water provision and also calls for the installation of sewer systems to evacuate both gray and black wastewater. The municipal business known as Emapa Chancay has drafted profiles for a water treatment plant that will be a solid climate-change-fighting measure. Participating Organizations: The Ministry of Housing, EMAPA S.A. Start year 2012

The PMRS Program: At-Source Solid Inorganic Garbage Separation
Following involvement from solid waste management specialists, this program was developed through a characterization study to determine waste type, quantity and hazards and understand each district inhabitant’s per-capita production rate. The study led to a solid wastes management plan that in turn gave rise to an at-source garbage separation program. Such oversight prevents indiscriminate garbage incineration or open-air disposal, which would produce greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. Start year 2012

Agrorural - Chancay Local Government Framework Nursery Agreement
The local government signed a five-year inter-institutional accord with Agrorural to cultivate trees for forestation and reforestation in district desert areas. This community association program helps reforest the Chancay River basin from its source to the Pacific Ocean. A national tara tree for exportation program has additionally been inaugurated. This forest cover plays an important role capturing carbon that is later converted into oxygen. Finally, the use of inorganic gels and vegetable beds to facilitate water retention around tree individuals is currently being analyzed. Start year 2012

At-School Eco-Efficient Environmental Education for Children and Young People
The program seeks to train and create awareness among children and young people and calls for the implementation of a school environmental committee at area educational institutions; six workshop programs were organized to inculcate good environmental habits. The goal is to strengthen the application of an environmental focus at educational institutions within a sustainable development education framework aimed at water, air, and solid wastes stewardship as well as land-related improvements. The implementation of a community reforestation project via school contests is also foreseen. Participating Organizations: the Ministry of the Environment, the Ministry of Agriculture, UGEL N° 10 de Huaral, educational institutions and private businesses. Start year 2012

Adaptation actions

Santa Rosa Wetlands Environmental Recuperation
The Santa Rosa wetland is a research, environmental education and climate conditions monitoring area featuring 42 hectares of reflective pools, 38 plant varieties and 45 animal species. Grazing there is restricted and programmed with animals that do not damage vegetation roots. Noteworthy potential includes nutrient retention and its incorporation into natural cycles, which reduce and control possible area eutrophication processes. The wetlands additionally provide protection against possible climate-related catastrophes in adjacent cultivated lands and help stabilize micro-climates; their absence would produce a rise in local temperature and for these reasons, the local government is making efforts for their conservation and protection.
