PROJECT OBJECTIVE

The Climate Change Commission and other key stakeholders in the Philippines ensure the coherent implementation of climate change policy at national and sub-national levels, and contribute to the further development of the international climate change regime.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The project builds on the experiences and results of an earlier project, ‘Support to the Climate Change Commission in implementing the National Climate Change Action Plan’, which was also implemented by GIZ and Commission until August 2015 with funding by the German Federal Environment Ministry (BMUB). This contributed to the strengthening of institutions to implement the National Climate Change Action Plan. It promoted the use of renewable energy through policy mechanisms, such as the feed-in tariffs and net metering, and supported capacity building for climate-resilient planning at the sub-national level. The current project supports the Climate Change Commission and other agencies, such as the Department of Energy and the Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board, in coordinating and implementing the national climate change policy, in the context of the Philippines’ international commitments. This includes support for the Philippines’ presidency of the Climate Vulnerable Forum in cooperation with the United Nations Development Programme. At the sub-national level, the project works with local government units in developing climate-adaptive land use and development plans, and in accessing climate financing facilities, such as the People’s Survival Fund. The project also supports the Department of Energy in establishing an effective regulatory framework to promote the use of renewable energy. The project partners are endeavouring to improve the state of energy planning so as to better accommodate the increasing amount of energy from variable renewable sources, such as solar and wind, in the Philippine power system.
