  • The LECB PHL Project is assisting the Philippines in the formulation of its roadmap for climate change mitigation strategies.

  • Project ReBUILD seeks to improve the governance framework in Region 2, CAR and Region 6, by putting in place the necessary enabling policy environment, mechanisms, systems and tools. It also aims to improve the competencies of the concerned personnel to address disaster risks from natural hazards and climate change, which set back development gains and make the vulnerable poor population poorer.

  • The objective of the Project is to improve the condition of the fisheries and their habitats in the Sulu Celebes Sea through an integrated, collaborative, and participatory management at the local, national, and tri-national levels.

  • The Project is expected to develop tools and mechanisms that would improve the coordination of national Rio Conventions stakeholders in terms of preparation and implementation of related policies, program and project activities. Additionally, it aims to develop tools that would ensure that the local and national stakeholders are addressing key global environmental issues in the pilot site and around the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park (PPSRNP) in a coordinated manner.

  • GMMA READY Project aims to decrease the vulnerability of the Greater Metro Manila Area (GMMA) to natural hazards and increase their resilience, by strengthening the institutional capacities of the local government units, concerned national government agencies, academic institutions and civil society organizations to manage disaster and climate change risks.

  • The Project Climate Twin Phoenix aims to assess the disaster vulnerabilities of the affected areas of Regions 10 and 11 in Mindanao to geological, meteorological and meteorologically-induced hazards due to climate change. The results will provide the basis for priority mitigation actions like community- based and -managed early warning systems, and integrated contingency planning and mobilization.

  • The expansion of the National Integrated Protection Areas System (NIPAS) to recognize new conservation areas such as those managed by indigenous people, local communities and local government units is seen as an opportunity to accelerate the coverage of the existing system, before the important key biodiversity areas are overtaken by these threats. In partnership with key organizations, local communities and other stakeholders, the Project will directly address key barriers and establish solid foundations for accelerated expansion of the terrestrial system in the Philippines, supported by strong management capacities, and sustainable financing.

  • The BPP is in recognition of the need to address habitat fragmentation brought about by inadequate policies, tools and capacities to encourage the participation of local government units (LGUs) in mainstreaming biodiversity conservation in local agricultural landscapes. The key intention of this project, therefore, is to increase the capacity of the LGUs to mainstream biodiversity conservation in production landscapes/seascapes geared towards the protection and enhancement of the quality of the environment and the sustainable management of the natural resources. Specifically, the project aims to demonstrate how LGUs, with enhanced capacities, and working together with local and national partners, can plan and manage economic activities and growth in ways that meet landscape-level biodiversity conservation and sustainable use objectives in critical biogeographic regions.

  • The Project addresses the country’s need to fulfill its obligations under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and to contribute to the efforts towards implementing the CBD Strategic Plan 2011-2020 at the national level. Integration of the Philippines’ obligations under the CBD into its national development and sectoral planning frameworks through a renewed and participative biodiversity planning and strategizing process will produce measurable targets and indicators for biodiversity conservation and sustainable use.
