Piura is one the Peruvian cities that is most affected by heavy rains and floods during El Niño. It is home to important educational and research centres, and is part of an important development cluster benefiting from flows of investment in agri-food industry, fishing, mining, and the service sector. 

Piura seeks to work on sustainability and resilience to climate change, while controlling urban sprawl. It is also interested in improving public spaces and evolving towards a Smart City model.
