The Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities was elected as the Environment and Climate NGO Sector Representative of the Philippine Open Government Partnership’s (PH-OGP) Steering Committee from 2023-2027. 

PH-OGP, currently chaired by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM), aims to promote inclusive, transparent, and accountable governance through empowered civic spaces, enhanced public participation, and strong multi-sectoral partnerships. The Non-government Steering Committee will support the PH-OGP’s direction setting for the country’s National Action Plan and ensuring that openness and inclusivity are integrated into the national and local government processes.

As the current Environment and Climate NGO representative, ICSC is committed to help advance participatory and whole-of-society governance by bringing in its expertise on climate and energy policy, leading capacity-building initiatives, developing policy briefs and communication materials, and reviewing policies and programs of the government in order to contribute to PH-OGP’s goals and implement effective reforms.
