Philippine Strategy on Climate Change Adaptation
The formulation of the Philippine Strategy on Climate Change Adaptation builds on existing institutional processes but gives strong emphasis on collaboration among national agencies, the legislative branch, the academy, business and civil society.
Eight technical working groups were organised to tackle needs and concerns in eight major sectors: Agriculture, Biodiversity; Coastal and Marine; Forestry; Water; Health; Energy; and Infrastructure.
The development of the Philippine Strategy on Climate Change Adaptation is supported by the German government through a programme called ‘Adaptation to Climate Change and Conservation of the Biodiversity in the Philippines (ACCBio)’ funded under the International
Climate Protection Initiative of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety of Germany (BMU) and implemented by German Technical Co-operation (GTZ) with the government and civil society partners.
