Support to the Philippine Climate Change Commission on the Implementation of the National Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan Project
As of: March 2021
The government of the Philippines resolved a climate legislative in 2009, which provides adaptation and mitigation. However, institutional capacities for the implementation of a consistent climate policy were weak and activities were not or insufficiently integrated into the planning process. The project therefore strengthened the national climate commission in development, implementation and coordination of the national climate strategy, and the national climate action plan and its integration in the planning system, e.g. applying an innovative monitoring system of effects of adaptation, local climate-compatible planning, support of the law of renewable energies, and with small-scale projects for better adaptation, mitigation and creation of carbon sinks with high possibility of duplication and multiplicator effects. The objective of the project was a better adaptation to climate change and emission reduction.
