Context

The Global Climate Risk Index of 2016 identifies the Philippines as one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change. Recognizing the threats of climate change, the Government of the Philippines (GoP) has undertaken key initiatives and implemented projects to pursue the GoP’s thrust of promoting climate resilience and inclusive growth.

Following the successful completion of a pilot project in 2014, GGGI is supporting the scale up and implementation of climate resilience and green growth projects under the Climate Resilient Green Growth (CRGG) Planning Project in the provinces of Palawan and Oriental Mindoro.

The Philippines has also established a national mechanism to support implementation of climate change adaptation interventions in the country, which GGGI is supporting the operationalization of.
