August 28, 2019 – The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) was featured in the Climate Change Commission’s (CCC) newly released newsletter for updates on the Foreign-Assisted Projects for Climate Action from April-June, 2019.
GGGI has been a development partner of the CCC for many years and has been active in the Philippines for projects on climate action. In April, GGGI and the Government of the Philippines met for a technical mission to develop the proposal on “Climate Resilient and Inclusive Green Growth: Accelerating Implementation in the Agriculture Value Chain of MIMAROPA Region” to support climate resilient agriculture value chains and improve the climate adaptation capacities of rural communities, agriculture workers, and agriculture-based Small and Medium Enterprises. Later that month, GGGI facilitated a grant deal by the Asian Development Bank for 50 units of E-trikes, amounting to almost USD $500,000, for the Municipality of San Vicente.
Moreover, GGGI supported the access and delivery of the Philippines’ first GCF Readiness Proposal, “Readiness Support to Strengthen the Philippines’ Capacity and Knowledge on Accessing the Green Climate Fund”. The proposal seeks to assist the CCC with its roles and responsibilities as GCF’s NDA of the Philippines, provide institutional support for the development of a monitoring and verification system for climate finance flows in the country, and pursue the ratification of a bilateral agreement between the Philippines and GCF.
