About us

The Technical Group for Environment and Green Growth (GTMACV, by its acronym in Spanish) arises after the 1st Pacific Alliance Environment Ministers Meeting, in the framework of the 20th Ministers of Environment for Latin America and the Caribbean Forum, held in Cartagena de Indias on March 30, 2016, recognizing the need to strengthen growth and sustainable development among the member countries of the Alliance.

On June 8, 2016, at the 15th Pacific Alliance Council of Ministers Meeting , the creation of the Environment and Green Growth Group was approved and on July 1, 2016, at the 11th Pacific Alliance Summit, the Presidents of the four member countries subscribed to the Puerto Varas Declaration, expressing their agreement with the constitution of this Technical Group.

  • Objetivo

Su objetivo general es el de construir un espacio de diálogo entre los Gobiernos de los países de la Alianza del Pacífico (AP) y el sector privado, para el desarrollo e implementación de una agenda que impulse la sustentabilidad en la AP y oriente sus acciones hacia un crecimiento verde, tomando en cuenta las características y realidades propias de cada país.

  • Ejes de trabajo

1. Identificar barreras y oportunidades entre el sector público y privado para avanzar hacia el crecimiento verde.
2. Dialogar y delinear acciones en conjunto que permitan promover e impulsar la elaboración e implementación de los compromisos en materia ambiental.
3. Desarrollar actividades de cooperación entre los gobiernos y el sector privado.
4. Desarrollar una plataforma para articular y promover una agenda ambiental común, que aborde las prioridades ambientales compartidas y que contribuya con la implementación de los ODS en el marco de la agenda 2030 avanzando en sistemas de información, medición e indicadores.

  • Relación GT de AP:

La transversalidad temática de los distintos componentes ambientales que plantea el desarrollo sustentable para los países de la AP, desde sus esfuerzos para combatir los impactos de contaminación local, impulsar mercados e inversiones verdes, hasta aquellos de carácter global en el contexto del cambio climático, establecen para el GTMACV un potencial de trabajo con cada uno de los grupos técnicos y el consejo empresarial de la alianza, el cual se ajustará en la medida que, tanto los lineamientos como los objetivos planteados por el GTMACV, el sector empresarial y los demás grupos técnicos coincidan con la estrategia global de la Alianza.

  • ¿Quiénes hacen parte?

Upcoming Activities

“Environmental performance and green growth in the Pacific Alliance” Seminar
June 21 and 22, 2017
Sonesta El Olivar Hotel

Pancho Fierro Street 194, San Isidro – Lima, Peru

Its purpose was to exchange knowledge, experiences and lessons learned in the implementation of recommendations of the OCDE, from the Environmental Performance Evaluations that have been carried out in Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru, and in the incorporation of green growth as part of their national policies; with the participation of representatives of the Ministry of Environment of Chile, Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development of Colombia, Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources of Mexico and the Ministry of Environment of Peru.

The GTMACV has been working on a systematization of experiences and lessons learned, conceiving the adoption of a green growth approach under three areas: 1) Sustainable consumption and production, 2) Green markets and 3) Green investments; managing to identify four areas of common interest for this exchange: a) Instruments for the reduction of GHG emissions; b) Information systems for environmental management; c) Promotion of green markets; d) Waste management policies. After the lessons and reflections of the Seminar, it has been found that the four countries share similar characteristics and problems when seeking to implement a vision of green growth, being possible to identify a common agenda to advance in the sustainability of the Pacific Alliance.
