Following severe damage caused by climate cycle El Nino Costero in Peru in 2017, the Department for International Trade has signed a G2G agreement with the Government of Peru to support the reconstruction, construction and enhancement of infrastructure damaged by El Nino. The UK Delivery Team represented by the strategic partners Mace, Arup and Gleeds has been selected by Peru’s Authority for Reconstruction with Changes to act as its delivery partner. It will develop integrated management plans to mitigate and reduce climate and geohazard risks in 19 river basins affected during the El Niño event. The three British firms will draw on their expertise across the project lifecycle to support ARCC with the construction, reconstruction and renovation of infrastructure across the country. The programme includes both new build and renovation of 74 schools and 15 new health centres. As El Nino is a recurring phenomenon, the programme also includes for the UK to support Peru to develop integrated management plans for flood mitigation infrastructure in 19 river basins, 5 gullies and 7 new urban drainage systems. This agreement will last for two years, starting from July 2020 to June 2022, with a possibility of extension for six months.

The UK Delivery Team will deliver technical assistance, PMO, procurement and delivery assurance in relation to the provision of schools, medical facilities and a flood resilience programmes. This major infrastructure programme is critical for Peru’s economic reactivation and the improvement of socio-economic opportunities for communities and businesses across the country.
