“The Climate Reality Project Philippines reiterates its commitment to work in support of the government’s goal to reduce the country’s greenhouse gas emissions by 75% relative to 2010 levels and its aspiration to peak emissions by 2030.
Now that the country’s first NDC has been officially submitted to the UNFCCC, it is time for the Climate Change Commission to facilitate a whole-of-government-and-society approach to the development of a comprehensive NDC Roadmap.
This roadmap should hammer out the sectoral policies and measures that will deliver our NDC targets and will spell out detailed plans and timetables for the transition of sectors into a low-carbon economy in line with our aspiration to peak our emissions by 2030. It should also include strategies for accessing international climate finance mechanisms, negotiating the transfer of transformative low-carbon technologies, and developing systems for monitoring, reporting, and valuation of mitigation actions.”
Castro added that the 1,200 Climate Reality Leaders across the country are ready to provide support to the government in developing the NDC Roadmap and raising awareness at the community level of the significance of the NDC to the country’s sustainable economic development.
