Private sources now represent nearly 90 percent of financial flows to developing countries. The private sector creates nine out of ten jobs in the developing world and provides an important pathway for partner countries to achieve self-reliance. It is also the driving force behind many new innovations that help solve development problems. To foster greater collaboration between USAID and the private sector to advance development, USAID officially launched its new Private Sector Engagement (PSE) policy in December 2018.

In Peru, USAID has a long history of partnering with the private sector to implement enduring solutions that help address some of the most complex development challenges. The launch of the PSE policy helps USAID pivot closer to unleashing the power of the private sector to achieve shared development objectives. USAID/Peru endeavors to create new and build on existing partnerships that further common priorities across multiple sectors. Promoting sustainable forest management and green businesses that balance economic growth with biodiversity conservation is paramount for successful PSE.  In rural economies once dominated by coca cultivation, USAID’s successful track record in harnessing private sector interests and resources in remote and underserved areas is bolstered by joint investment in improved governance. USAID/Peru will pursue other opportunities to partner with the private sector as it implements its new five-year strategy, 2020-2025.

As of July 2021, the U.S. Government has allocated more than $36 million in new  resources and two million doses of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines to assist Peru in its  emergency response to COVID-19. The aid continues a strong history of investing in  Peru’s health care systems and long-term development, mainly through the U.S. Agency  for International Development (USAID).

Ongoing U.S. Government-funded programs and partners are also adapting activities to  respond to this unprecedented crisis. Over the last 20 years, U.S. assistance to  Peru totals more than $3.5 billion, including $265 million in the health sector.  Emergency assistance comes from the U.S. Agency for International Development  (USAID), the Department of Defense Humanitarian Assistance Program, and the  Department of State’s Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance fund.

A Julio de 2021, el Gobierno de los Estados Unidos ha asignado más de 36 millones de dólares y dos millones de dosis de vacunas Pfizer-BioNTech para ayudar al Perú en su respuesta de  emergencia para enfrentar al COVID-19. Esta asistencia es reflejo de una sólida historia de inversión en los sistemas de atención médica y el desarrollo del Perú a largo plazo,  principalmente realizados a través de la Agencia de los Estados Unidos para el Desarrollo  Internacional (USAID). 

Las instituciones y programas que actualmente son financiados por el Gobierno de los Estados  Unidos también están adaptando sus actividades para responder a esta crisis sin precedentes.  En los últimos 20 años, la asistencia de los Estados Unidos al Perú asciende a más de 3.5 mil  millones de dólares, de los cuales 265 millones fueron destinados al sector salud. La asistencia de emergencia proviene de la Oficina de Asistencia Humanitaria de USAID, el Programa de Asistencia Humanitaria del Departamento de Defensa y de la Oficina de Población, Refugiados y  Migración del Departamento de Estado.

Más de la mitad del paisaje peruano está cubierto por bosques y ríos de la Amazonía. Desafortunadamente, se estima que el 80% de la madera del Perú se tala ilegalmente y la tasa de deforestación continúa aumentando. Pro-Bosques trabaja para fortalecer el sector forestal sostenible, legal y rentable del Perú.

El propósito general de USAID-Pro-Bosques es proporcionar los pilares de sostenibilidad, legalidad, inclusión y rentabilidad necesarios para sostener y modernizar el sector forestal del Perú. Al gestionar los recursos forestales de forma sostenible, conservamos la biodiversidad y reducimos la emisión de gases que atrapan el calor del sol y calientan la superficie del planeta (emisión de gases de efecto invernadero). El proyecto también incrementa la competitividad, combate delitos ambientales como la tala ilegal, y apoya al Perú en cumplir sus obligaciones en el marco del Acuerdo de Promoción Comercial entre EE.UU. y Perú, conocido como Tratado de Libre Comercio entre EE.UU. y Perú.
