Peru faces the challenge of meeting growing demand for infrastructure in the country in order to support regions that continue to be excluded economically. Development of infrastructure is a key driver for progress, as it promotes economic growth and production, contributing in the long term to poverty reduction, access to services and human development. It could also become a transformational driver for climate change if infrastructure can become sustainable in an environmental and social way.
National figures indicate that 87,7% of Peruvian homes have access to energy, nonetheless in some rural areas almost half of the houses do not have this access. In order to bridge the infrastructure gap, governments have to address their limitations and create alliances. An interesting alternative are Public Private Partnerships (PPP) which in most cases are able to provide lacking resources, access to advanced technology and more efficiency.
