Peru sets up environment ministry

Date : 14th May 2008, Source : BBC Link to News Story



Peru has created its first environment ministry, on the eve of a joint Latin American and European Union summit expected to focus on climate change. Peruvian President Alan Garcia said the new ministry would help protect the nation's Amazon rainforest. A scientific study has said that Peru - which is hosting this week's summit - is one of the three nations that will be most affected by global warming. Many Peruvians will see the foundation of the ministry as long overdue. Peru's Andes mountains are the home of more than half the world's tropical glaciers, but it is estimated that in 25 years time they will be gone.
