ICSC steered the critical junctures in PSF board meetings, which resulted to the operationalization of six approved proposals from LGUs amounting to more than Php300 million, as well as the deferment of other proposals that need to be improved. The organization also sent several online updates and hosted two webinars on operationalizing PSF, which was widely attended by civil society members.
You will find in this page reports, documents, notes and other materials related to People’s Survival Fund Board discussions, including the appointment papers of the CSO representative to the PSF Board, and some archival material showing the different legislative versions of what is today called the PSF Act, dating back to the original House and Senate bills that were eventually passed as RA 9729 or the Climate Change Act of 2009, which was eventually amended into what is today RA 10174 or the PSF Law.
This page intends to sustain the transparency and accountability agenda not only of the PSF Board but of ICSC itself as an organization that works on fair climate policy and sustainable energy solutions.
