Climate governance works on different milieus and scales – political, economic, geographical, and temporal. It integrates current and evidence-based climate science in both political and economic planning, implementation, and review processes across national and local levels.

Through this platform, we celebrate our local partners working together and pursuing progressive action continuously, proving that climate science and policy in the national and international levels are relevant on the ground.

All these efforts gear towards transformative change by linking climate risks, natural and built ecosystems (and their services) and enhancing development pillars at the local level, empowering communities to govern for resilience.

Project Areas

After the relief and recovery that followed in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan in 2013, the Climate Change Adaptation Framework (CCAF) was established as a tool to steer governments towards resilience and sustainable development. It enabled local government units to develop risk informed or integrated risk management (IRM) programs that take into consideration not just natural disasters, but climate, and man-made (anthropogenic) risks and hazards[AP2] .

Its organic evolution developed because of relationships between stakeholders that fostered shared learning and shared values between LGUs  and other local stakeholders experiencing similar and significant hazards. Read more about the communities’ unique stories.
