SUBJECT: Peru to Accede to Copenhagen Accord

REF: 10 STATE 3079

1. Charge delivered reftel demarche on January 26 to Peruvian
Environment Minister Antonio Brack, who had led Peru's delegation
to COP-15 in Copenhagen. Vice Minister Rosario Gomez Gamarra,
Brack's chief of staff Patricia Fernandez-Davila, and International
Cooperation Director Jose Antonio Gonzalez also participated in the
meeting.

2. Brack and Gomez said Peru would submit its letter of accession
to the Copenhagen Accord on January 31. In a separate letter, Peru
would request clarification of questions relating to financing.
One question is what the designation of island states, African
countries and least developed countries as recipients of financial
transfers might mean for Peru. Brack said Peru is developing a
National Adaptation Plan for Climate Change, but estimates that it
will need $420 million per year for adaptation and mitigation
measures. These funds would go toward preservation of the
rainforest, reforestation, development of renewable energy sources,
creation of adaptive mechanisms for water supplies, and climate
change monitoring systems, among other initiatives. Brack said
Peru would also ask what supervisory mechanism there would be for
financial measures, and would request specifics on how to access
the prompt start financing of $30 billion over the next three
years.

3. Brack said Peru would also submit information on actions it
intends to implement under Appendix II of the Copenhagen Accord.
Peru would not have this ready by January 31, he said, but would
submit the information in February.
