Official presentation of the Blue Book Peru

The Blue Book Peru official presentation was held in Lima last October. As all the Blue Books, the goal of the Blue Book Peru was to start a process that could create positive and effective changes for the whole water sector.


The presentation had a great echo in Peru – which was the reflection created by the Blue Book dynamic ! More than 150 people participated in this ceremony, including the Vice-minister of construction and sanitation, the Cabinet Chief of the Ministry of the Environment, the Ministry of Agriculture General Manager, the Latin American Development Bank-CAF Representative and many international cooperation organizations and obviously a strong civil society’s presence.

The Blue Book process does not end with the presentation of the Blue Book:

  • The Vice-Minister of Construction and Sanitation has invited the Peru Blue Book National Committee to meet with Civil Society organizations to develop joint activities to comply with the Blue Book targets.
  • A Monitoring process has been implanted. It is a way to promote change with the commitment of authorities and civil society.
  • More debates are taking place strengthening the role of the Blue Book Peru and its value as a monitoring tool of the Sustainable Development Agenda 2030 – Objective 6.

Likewise, the International Secretariat for Water prepares a document that capitalizes the Blue Book Peru experience to contribute guiding other Blue Books initiatives.

Articles have been published in the Red Agua Segura and  IPROGA.
