Gift Trees In Peru
Why plant trees in Peru?
Peru faces formidable and unique complications from climate change including electricity shortages and dwindling water supplies.
- As the Andes glaciers continue to shrink (due at least in part to rising temperatures), supplies of drinking water and water for electricity generation are at serious risk.
- Lima, Peru, is the world's second-largest capital city located in a desert, and as its population increases, electricity demand is expected to rise.
