Support to the Philippines in Shaping and Implementing the International Climate Regime (SupportCCCII)

Objective

  • The Climate Change Commission and other stakeholders of the Philippines ensure a coherent implementation of the climate change policy at the national and subnational levels,
  • And contribute to further development of the international climate regime.

Description

The project strengthens the Climate Change Commission 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 shall be fed into the international climate change negotiations and into relevant international fora (e.g. CVF) by the Climate Change Commission.

The project’s climate change policy measures mobilize public and private resources for “low carbon” solutions. The implementation of land-use and development plans relevant for adaptation secures income structures and prevents economic and ecological damage 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.

  • Implementation of the national climate change policy within the frame-work of the Philippine international climate change commitment
  • Climate-proof land-use and development planning at local level
