The Country Planning Framework (CPF) for the Philippines presents the strategic initiatives that the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) aims to pursue in partnership with the government. The CPF is formulated with the development challenges of the country in mind, and supports the national priorities of “inclusive growth” and “climate resilience” as embodied in the Philippine Development Plan 2011–2016 (PDP) and the National Climate Change Action Plan 2011–2028 (NCCAP). The CPF is also aligned with the organizational priorities of GGGI, specifically its thematic areas, value chain and delivery model as articulated in the GGGI Strategic Plan 2015-2020.1 The CPF is thus a contextualized planning document for in-country programming.
The adoption and operationalization of the CPF is anchored on an outstanding Memorandum of Understanding, which outlines the broad areas of collaboration between GGGI and the Climate Change Commission (CCC) toward green growth, effective until October 2021. Hence, mutual commitment for the CPF is envisaged from both GGGI and the government.
