The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines, together with the LGU of Butuan participated in a virtual forum on Republic Act 11285, or Energy Efficiency and Conservation Law for Mindanao LGUs. The forum was hosted by the Department of Energy (DOE), the European Union-supported Access to Sustainable Energy Programme (EU-ASEP), the Asian Development Bank (ADB), and the ASEP Clean Energy Living Laboratories (ASEP-CELLS). 

The forum is the latest milestone in WWF-Philippines’ Financing and Integrating Renewable Energy in Butuan City (FiNRE-BXU) project. The project is a bottom-up, top-down planning process that looks to address Butuan’s energy gaps. To do this, WWF-Philippines has been training local stakeholders, integrating indigenous resources, and engaging financing institutions and energy developers to pursue clean, sustainable energy projects.
