Pasig City: Assessment of Existing Climate Policies

Philippines Policy Brief No. 01

Reviewing a local government’s climate action plans often does not reveal its full responsibilities. The exceptions are the city’s Local Development Investment Plan (LDIP) and Annual Investment Plan (AIP), which document the actual allocation of public funds for certain Programs/Projects/Activities (PPAs).¬†An analysis of Pasig’s LDIP, AIP, Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP), and Local Climate Change Action Plan (LCCAP) provided an entry point for enhancing the integration of LEDS with Pasig’s goals.

It is imperative that the national government supports local climate action by designing enabling policies and providing the necessary capacity building to local governments for the them to mainstream LEDS initiatives into their local government plans and PPAs.
