Country Overview

1.1.1.WATER RESOURCES Peru has a large amount of water resources, with 106 river basins and a per capita availability of 68,321m3 in 2006. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) the long-run average annual rainfall is 1,738mm. There is significant seasonal variability in river runoffs, two-thirds of which occur between January and April. The Andes divide Peru into three natural drainage basins: Pacific basin (279,000km²), Atlantic basin (959,000km²) and Lake Titicaca basin (47,000km²). According to the National Water Authority (Autoridad Nacional del Agua – ANA), the Pacific basin has 53 rivers; the Atlantic basin has 44 rivers; and Lake Titicaca basin has 9 rivers. According to ANA , the dry Pacific basin, with 37.4km³ available per year, accounts for 1.8 per cent of Peru’s renewable water resources. Its 53 rivers, flowing west from the Andes, supply the bulk of the water to the coastal region. Of these rivers, only about 30 per cent are perennial. From 1984 to 2000, the average water availability decreased to 33km³ per year and from 2003 to 2004 to 20km³ per year. External resources of water enter Peru though tributaries of the Amazon, in the Atlantic river basin, supplying 125 billion cubic metres annually. The main rivers are Napo, Tigre, Pastaza, Santiago, Morona, Cenepa, and Chinchipe. ANA estimates the total amount of groundwater available on the coast to be between 35 and 40km³. There is specific data available only for eight valleys on the coast with 9.0km³ of groundwater available. Around 1.8km³ of water is actually extracted on the coast. Insufficient information is available regarding groundwater availability and withdrawal in the highland and Amazon regions.

1.1.2.WATER USE Agriculture accounts for the withdrawal of 14km³ per year (or 80 per cent of total water use) and domestic withdrawals account for 2km³ per year (12per cent of total water use). The Atlantic basin holds 97 per cent of all available water with nearly 2,000km³ available per year. Agriculture also accounts for 80 per cent of water use, while domestic use accounts for 14 per cent. The Lake Titicaca basin receives 10 billion cubic metres per year. In this basin, agriculture accounts for 66 per cent of total water use, while domestic use accounts for 30 per cent.

1.2.WATER QUALITY, ECOSYSTEMS AND HUMAN HEALTH Major environmental problems are deforestation (some the result of illegal logging); overgrazing of the slopes of the costal and mountain areas leading to soil erosion; desertification; air pollution in Lima; pollution of rivers and coastal waters from municipal and mining wastes. The gradual decrease in Peru’s water quality is due to the release of untreated effluents from mining, industries, municipalities, and agriculture. Of the 53 rivers in the coastal area, 16 are partly polluted by lead, manganese and iron, threatening irrigation and drinkable water supplies. In particular, the Ministry of Agriculture (MINAG) considers "alarming" the quality of the Moche, Santa, Mantaro, Chillon, Rimac, Tambo, and Chili Rivers Notably, the 18 mining facilities situated along the Mantaro River discharge untreated water into the mainstream, threatening the water supply also for the country’s largest hydroelectric facility. Ineffective irrigation has generated salinization and drainage problems in 3,000km² of the coastal valleys (of a total irrigated area of 7,360km²), jeopardizing land productivity and affecting the quality of Lima’s water supply. Drainage problems are also affecting 1,500km² in the Amazon region. In the highland and Amazon areas, excessive deforestation due to nomadic agriculture practices is causing erosion and soil degradation. In the Sierra 55-60 per cent of the land is affected, increasing the amount of soil transported downstream.
