Support of the Philippines for developing and implementing national contributions to the international climate change regime
As of: March 2019
Objective and activities
The project strengthens the Climate Change Commission (CCC) and other key actors in implementing and coordinating the national climate change regime as well as developing and operationalizing national contributions to the international climate change regime. Projects results will be fed into the international climate change regime by the CCC. The project supports mobilization of public and private resources for low carbon and climate resilient solutions, including by support to operationalizing the People's Survival Fund. The implementation of land use and development plans relevant for adaptation secures income and prevents economic damages caused by climate change. Climate-smart economic development increases the competitiveness of the private sector. Renewable energies stabilize the energy supply, increase the attractiveness of the Philippines as an investment location and promote economic development in remote areas.
