Philippines: Strategies to address greenhouse gas emission identified
August 06, 2012
THE Climate Change Commission (CCC) is now identifying activities and strategies to better address greenhouse gas (GHG) emission in the country, an agency official said.
CCC Commissioner Naderev Saño said the National Government has to look at strategies in decoupling economic growth from emissions that will bring major advances in energy efficiency of products and services, power generation, building and transport, significant increase in the use of renewable energy, and lower emissions from land use.
Saño said RA 9729 or the 2009 Climate Change Act has put in place the legal framework for the National Framework Strategy on Climate Change in the Philippines.
“The mitigation pillar of the framework strategy has the long-term objective to facilitate the transition towards low GHG emissions for sustainable development in the areas of energy efficiency, environmentally sustainable transport, sustainable infrastructure, national REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation in Developing Countries) strategy, and waste management,” Saño added.
