Climate Finance Adaptation Study Report: Philippines

According to the projection of the OECD, global climate finance from public sources have already reached 66.8 billion USD. Its utilization in developing countries increased and it mobilized projects to address climate change and its impacts. It is crucial that the needs of developing countries are recognized in order to understand how climate finance can be mobilized. Continued commitment to advance climate finance is essential but recipients must be able to maximize the finance at hand and use it effectively.  However, there is a necessity to effectively track climate finance from the global perspective to the local level to ensure transparency in the project details. Improving transparency in tracking available finance also increases accountability, ensuring that climate commitments are met with the help of climate finance.

Impacts of Climate Change Slow-Onset Events of Sea Level Rise, Increasing Sea Surface Temperature, and Ocean Acidification in Coastal Fishery Areas and Small Island Ecosystems in Visayas, Philippines

The Visayas State University (VSU), through its Regional Climate Change Research and Development Center, in partnership with the Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities (ICSC), and with funding support from CordAid, conducted this research in recognition of the fact that climate change must be fully understood through the generation of science-based evidence prior to the development of interventions for adaptation and mitigation toward building a high level of resilience among vulnerable communities.

Advancing Ambition Through Socially Beneficial Climate Action: Recommendations for the Talanoa Dialogue and Paris Rulebook

Climate change is often described as a global collective action problem, in which the costs are borne by countries that act, while the benefits are shared by all. Although this understanding has long framed global climate policy debates, it is increasingly wrong. Climate solutions are now often cheaper and provide greater economic and social returns than higher-carbon alternatives. As a result, many (but certainly not all) of the actions needed to contain climate pollution are “socially beneficial”: they will increase the overall welfare and advance the equitable development goals of the countries that take them, even before climate impacts are considered.

Towards a just transition in the Philippine electricity sector:
Challenges and opportunities

The Philippine energy sector is at a crucial juncture and facing a predicament. The country’s economy continues to grow rapidly but the country’s economy predominantly is coal-powered. At the same time, the Philippines has led the push to limit global temperatures to 1.5 degrees Celsius and submitted ambitious Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC), with a conditional greenhouse gas reduction target of 70 per cent below business-as-usual (BAU) levels by 2030.

Slow Onset Events:
Local Studies of Climate Change Impacts in the Philippines

This report shows how findings from local science-based studies can further show the magnitude of the consequences of slow onset events and the need to implement greater and innovative adaptation measures to reduce these impacts. It also seeks to complement international e orts by striving to build up a local knowledge and research database on slow onsets by tapping three state universities in the three major Philippine island groups.

Carving Out Coal in the Philippines:
Stranded Coal Plant Assets and the Energy Transition (Briefer)

The Philippine’s financial sector is massively exposed to the imminent stranding of proposed coal plants in the country, which amount to over 10,000 megawatts or US$21 billion (PHP1.05 trillion at PHP50 to US$1), according to a report released today by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) and the Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities (ICSC).
