ACADEMIC PARTICIPATION

The Institute of Climate Policies promotes the development of academic and research spaces, from an interdisciplinary approach. For this reason, working with study centers and research centers, such as non-governmental organizations or think tanks, is key.

In coordination with Universidad del Pacifico, IPC was co-organizer of an event where the development of green economic reactivation in three Latin American countries was presented. In addition, the perspective of key actors, such as the State, civil society and indigenous peoples, for the green reactivation in Peru was discussed.

IPC participated in the Vermont Law School’s Global Conference on Environmental Taxation No. 21. In this conference he presented the presentation “Carbon pricing in Peru: Energy transition and climate justice in a Covid-19 context”, on the options of implementing a carbon price that contributes to climate justice in Peru, taking into account the context of the Covid-19.

In the Binational Cycle of Conferences on International Relations held by Universidad del Rosario de Colombia and the Peruvian University of Applied Sciences, IPC presented a conference on climate change and measures to combat it, where the case of carbon prices was presented.

With the support of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftun, the research article entitled: “Post-Covid economic reactivation and mitigation of Climate Change in CAN countries” has been prepared, which analyzes the situation of the member countries of the Andean Community of Nations (CAN) regarding the measures they have taken to reactivate their economy and how they impact on the mitigation objectives for climate change.

STRATEGIC LITIGATION

The IPC team promotes strategic litigation actions in international channels, such as the Secretariat for Requests on Environmental Compliance Issues (SACA) of the Trade Agreement between Peru and the United States (FTA).

In 2019, we submitted one of the first requests to SACA due to the lack of effective application of Law 28694, which requires that the taxes levied on fuels in Peru are applied based on a criterion of harmfulness.

This case shows that the role of taxation, as well as economic and fiscal instruments in general, are fundamental to affect people’s decisions. Especially in the case of climate change, which is a global problem where externalities are not usually assumed by the actors that cause them.
