Region Overview

Although Peru has enormous water wealth (71% of the world’s tropical glacier, 6% of its surface water, an extensive coastline and water availability of 70,000 cubic meters/person), it faces severe water stress that is exacerbated by high vulnerability to climate change. It has low-lying coastal areas, arid and semi-arid regions, areas vulnerable to flooding, drought, and desertification, and fragile mountainous ecosystems. Climate change has led to increasing glacial retreat and an increase in extreme weather events including droughts and floods. These vulnerabilities are further exacerbated by economic development policies and growth that are based upon unsustainable use of natural resources, particularly water. In addition, the coast, where the vast majority of Peru’s population lives and where one of Peru’s main economic drivers - agriculture, consumes 80% of available renewable freshwater- is also one of the most arid regions in the country (only 2% of total water available). Inadequate waste-water treatment is also threatening local water supply due to increased contamination. The Rimac is an important source of potable water for Lima, Peru, which receives 75% of its potable water from the watershed. A growing population and economic growth are putting stress on existing water systems. Studies by state-owned water company, Sedapal, have shown that around 60% of pollution in the Rimac is caused by mining activities, 25% due to household waste, and 15% due to industrial uses. Some key commodities and industry include: Agriculture: In the Tambo de Viso region - alfalfa, potatoes, cereals, tubers, and grains Mining: Casapalca region
