Capacity Development for the Clean Development Mechanism, Phase I
Mission Report (The Philippines)
(20-23 August 2002)
Ram M. Shrestha
Energy Program, AIT
October 2, 2002
1. Objectives of the Country Mission:
The UNEP project “Capacity Development for the Clean Development Mechanism”
funded by the Netherlands government has, in its project preparation phase (Phase I), a
major objective of preparing a detailed country specific work plan for capacity
development for next three years (2003- 2005) in Phase II of the project. The Philippines
has been included as one of the three Asian countries to be covered by the project. The
objectives of the mission to the Philippines, were:
a) to identify a national focal point agency;
b) to take stock of past and present activities on CDM, and
c) to assess the need for capacity development.
2. Brief Description of the Mission
The first mission to the Philippines for this project was held during 20-23 August 2002.
The team consisted of Dr. M. K. Lee of UCCEE and Prof. Ram M. Shrestha of AIT. Ms.
Joyceline Goco, Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) of the Department of
Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) was the local contact point during the
mission. She and her colleagues provided excellent support in organizing the meetings
with various stakeholders and providing necessary logistic support during the country
In the course of the mission, seven different institutions were visited by the team and
discussions were held with key people related to climate change in these institutions. The
institutions visited were:
Environmental Management Bureau (EMB),
Alternative Energy Development of Philippines (AED),
Asian Development Bank (ADB),
Climate Change Information Center (CCIC),
Department of Energy,
Philippines Network on Climate Change (PNCC)
The Royal Netherlands Embassy.
Besides, there was a meeting with representatives of member institutions of Inter-Agency
Committee on Climate Change (IACCC). There was also a meeting with a senior official
of Industrial Technology Development Institute (ITDI) and a chairman of Environmental
Committee of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce & Industry. The list of stakeholders
with whom the team had held discussions, their affiliations and addresses are presented in
A number of relevant documents were collected by the team during the mission. This are
listed in Appendix 2.
3. Summary of Findings/Assessments
(i) On National Focal Point Institution
Three institutions i.e., IACCC Secretariat, CCIC and ITDI were identified as options for
national focal point institution of the project based on the strong interest shown by them
in the project and their climate change related activities. Of these, it would be preferable
to involve both IACCC and CCIC in the project since they have complementary
strengths: IACCC has representations in it of most key stakeholders (governmental as
well as non-governmental) and has been playing a leading role in national policy
formulation on climate change issues. It could play an effective role in policy making
process of the government in relation to the eventual setting up of the national CDM
authority in the country. It would be difficult to develop a national institutional
framework for the CDM without the active participation of IACCC.
CCIC’s main strength lies in its technical expertise and research experience and
capability on climate change issues (it has already carried out some studies on GHG
emission and other climate change issues). It also has the flexibility and ability to pool
necessary resource persons from other institutions. (ITDI is found to be a weaker option
as it was told that most of its staffs do not have familiarity with the CDM.)
Therefore, the following roles are suggested for CCIC and IACCC in the project: CCIC
undertakes the technical works such as research, report preparation etc. while IACCC
carries out the government related activities and awareness raising and consultative
activities such as convening meetings and workshops.
It is recommended that in order to ensure effective coordination/execution of the project
activities, CCIC be the main contractor to perform the role of the national institution; that
is, UCCEE sign a contract with CCIC only. CCIC and IACCC should then enter into a
separate contract between themselves. However, both CCIC and IACCC should be made
responsible to UCCEE for the final output. Given the heavier responsibility of CCIC, it is
also recommended that CCIC receive a higher share of the project budget (say, 65% for
CCIC and 35% for IACCC).
(ii) Past and Ongoing Activities related to the CDM
A number of CDM related activities have been undertaken in the Philippines. These
include: (i) a UNDP funded Project on “Capacity Building in CDM Activities” which
was completed in 2001 by EMB/IACCC, (ii) “Philippines Case Study” was completed
earlier this year under the UNIDO project titled “Capacity Mobilization to Enable
Industrial Projects under the Clean Development Mechanism”, (iii) Workshop on
Promotion of renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Greenhouse gas Abatement
(PREGA) held in November 2001 in Mandaluyong City, Philippines which has included
presentations on CDM.
A project for a study (with one man-month of consultant time) on establishment of
operational framework of the CDM in the Philippines is being negotiated to be conducted
by Alternative Energy Development (Philippines), Inc with the Netherlands Embassy in
(iii) On Needs for Capacity Building
Lack of awareness was almost invariably stated to be the major barrier in the
implementation of the CDM projects by the stakeholders. Very few people even in
organizations like Department of Energy (DOE) know about the CDM, and they know it
only superficially. Another main barrier to implement CDM projects is lack of capacity to
handle CDM projects. It was also stated that even most banks do not know how to handle
the renewable energy and energy efficiency projects which are going to be major focus of
the CDM in the energy sector. These suggest the need for different types of capacity
building, i.e., from awareness raising programs to technical capacity to assess GHG
mitigation to handling the financing issues related to the CDM projects. Keeping in
view the overwhelming opinion heard during the mission on the need to raise the
awareness of the stakeholders about the CDM, it was strongly felt that a national
workshop would not be effective in formulating an appropriate national work plan for the
project without a general orientation seminar/workshop on CDM conducted for the key
stakeholders before the national workshop. EMB has agreed to organize a one day
orientation workshop at the project cost.
The Philippines is in the process of ratification of the Kyoto Protocol. The ratification is
expected by the end of 2002.
4. Notes of Discussion/Meetings with Different Stakeholders
20 August 2002
Environmental Management Bureau (EMB), Department of Environment and
Natural Resources (DENR)
Meeting with Ms. Joyceline Goco, Chief, Institutional Coordination and Documentation
Section, Environmental Education and Information Division
Head, The Secretariat of Inter-Agency Committee on Climate Change
The meeting started with a brief introduction of the present CDM project by Dr. M.K.
Lee. This was followed by a comprehensive presentation on environmental and climate
change activities covering legal development, projects/programs and achievements so far
in the sphere of climate change in the Philippines by Ms. Goco.
EMB has 300 staff working in its central office and has 13 regional offices. Ms. Goco’s
Division (i.e., Environmental Education and Information Division) is serving as the
secretariat of IACCC.
The chief negotiator on climate change issues belongs to Department of Foreign Affairs
(DFA). However, the national policy is formulated through IACCC in which DENR
plays the leading role.
Ms. Goco showed great interest in the project and asked about the role of the national
focal point in the project. She suggested to discuss the identification of the national focal
point institution at the meeting with representatives of IACCC members.
EMB and Development Bank of Philippines are planning to organize a meeting of senior
project evaluators of banks on science and policy (national + international ) of CDM,
procedures and participation requirements of CDM and some case studies to raise
awareness. Eventually, there would also be a similar meeting/workshop organized for
EMB completed a UNDP funded Project on CDM in 2001.
A comprehensive proposal on development of a National Operational Framework for
implementation of CDM in Philippines was to be proposed to the Netherlands Embassy
in Manila in August 2002. An initial proposal had included the following issues:
Determination of national GHG mitigation potential
Listing of prospective CDM Projects
Determination of legal, institutional and administrative machinery
However, EMB was advised by the Embassy to focus on institutional framework.
Renewable energy and energy efficiency projects are the main focus of the country for
the CDM. Forestry projects are excluded because of the higher uncertainties in the
On the institutional development related to climate change, Philippines has been quite
active in that the Inter Agency Committee on Climate Change (IACCC) was set up even
before UNFCCC was negotiated. Philippines Council for Sustainable Development
(PCSD) established in 1992.
Some legal developments that would have bearings (direct or indirect) on climate change
include: Philippines Clean Air act 1999 and New and Renewable Energy Program Act.
Climate change related activities so far include:
- National Communication (prepared by IACC in collaboration with EMB).
- National Action Plan on Climate Change (Adoption of GHG mitigation or
avoidance measures (no regret options))
- The country is in the process of ratification. Ratification is expected before the
end of 2002.
Past climate change related projects include:
1. ALGAS – It has identified a list of initial mitigation options.
2. Philippines Climate Change Mitigation Program (PCCMP) funded by the US. The
Climate Change Information Center (CCIC) was established under PCCMP.
3. UNDP project on Capacity Building in CDM Activities.
4. Country Study Program on Climate Change (USAID): It included a study on
assessment of vulnerability and adoption measures (conducted by the Weather
5. GHG Abatement Awards (aided by the US): These are particularly given to
energy efficient companies.
6. Enabling Activities: These included preparation of initial national communication
Meeting with Dr. Alice B. Herrera:
Chief, Fuels and Energy Division, Industrial Technology Development Institute
Vice President, Energy Management Association of the Philippines (ENMAP).
Dr. Herrera showed strong interest to participate in the project as a national focal point
institution on behalf of Industrial Technology Development Institute (ITDI) (an institute
under the Department of Science and technology (DOST)). Alternatively, she was
proposing Energy Management Association of the Philippines (ENMAP) as a candidate
for national focal point institution of the present project.
ITDI is a focal point for GHG Emission Reduction from Industry in Asia and Pacific
(GERIAP) activity of UNEP funded by Sida. It has also been serving as a collaborating
national research institute (NRI) for the small and medium industries (SMI) project of
the Asian Regional Research Programme on Energy, Environment and Climate
(ARRPEEC). ITDI activities also include energy audit and provision of technical services
ITDI has several Divisions including Environment Division as well as Fuel and Energy
Division. Its professional manpower is mainly in the technical fields of agricultural and
mechanical engineering. Dr. Herrera’s Division in ITDI (i.e., Fuels and Energy Division)
is staffed with 20 researchers and can work with the Environment Division.
Dr. Herrera has, in her personal capacity, served as the national expert and country focal
point for the CDM Project of United Nations Industrial Development Organization
(UNIDO) entitled “Developing National Capacity on Industrial CDM”. A report entitled
“Capacity Mobilization to Enable Industrial Projects under the CDM” has been prepared
as an output of that project. However, looking at the institutional capability of ITDI, she
seems to be the only person in ITDI who is engaged in CDM activities.
ENMAP is a private organization whose members include people from industry and
equipment suppliers. According to Dr. Herrera, ENMAP is promoting CDM through
training programs on energy efficiency and climate change.
21 August 2002
Alternative Energy Development (AED) Philippines Incorporated – (an affiliate of
AED in the US)
Meeting with Ms. Laurie B. Navarro, President, AED, Philippines.
AED’s main business area is to develop projects in renewable energy and energy
AED is to conduct a study on establishment of a national CDM authority for UNDP. The
study is being funded by the Netherlands Embassy in the Philippines. The study (with
one man-month of consultant time) is to start soon. Its objectives are to develop a
national operational framework for CDM (establishment of a NCA (National CDM
Authority being a part of the framework) and to develop awareness among the
stakeholders and get their inputs to the development of framework. The first step will be
to look at other countries’ experience.
According to Ms. Novarro, barriers to a CDM Authority include the following:
- Lack of awareness about CDM in the government (both at senior and working
level) is a major barrier
- Lack of information
- Capacity to develop CDM projects
However, no political barrier is expected.
Development Bank of Philippines (DBP) is undertaking several investments in renewable
energy and energy efficiency projects e.g., Solar PV for rural electrification, Biomass,
Hydropower, Solar water heading (for commercial installment)
A CDM seminar is being organized for representatives of DBP and DOE tentatively in
September or October 2002.
Asian Development Bank (ADB)
Meeting with Mr. Aminul Huq,
Mr. Huq briefed about the recently established Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and
Climate Change (REACH) program. The program is being administered by the Asian
Development Bank (ADB) is funded by three trust funds i.e.,
Netherlands Cooperation Fund for Promotion of Renewable Energy, Energy
Efficiency and Greenhouse Gas Abatement (5 M$),
Canadian Cooperation Fund for Climate Change (3.2 M$) and
Danish Cooperation Fund (3.5 M$).
REACH has two components: One of them deals with development of renewable energy
technology (RET) and energy efficiency improvement (EEI) programs while the other is
focussed on capacity building in such areas as GHG emission assessment, appraisal of
renewable energy (RE) projects and as to how to pursue RE and EEI policies. The latter
component is handled by the program on Promotion of Renewable Energy, Energy
Efficiency and Greenhouse Gas Abatement (PREGA).
REACH is indirectly related to CDM. The program is to finance the projects that would
generate emission reductions (ERs) in ADB developing member countries. The program
is trying to enter into arrangement with someone ready to purchase ERs.
Asian Development Bank (ADB)
Meeting with Dr. Bindu N. Lohani (Secretary of the ADB), Mr. Nessim J. Ahmad, Dr.
Richard S. Ondrick, Dr. Sujata Gupta and Mr. Aminul Huq
The discussion covered wide ranging issues of climate change including the roles of GEF
versus CDM. Questions were raised as to how a national CDM Authority (NCA) could
be established and its structure.
The three Asian countries included in this project are also covered under the REACH
Dr. Lohani expressed the view (and other ADB members agreed) that there could be
many complementarities between the activities of the present project and that of the
ADB’s PREGA/REACH programs.
Inter-Agency Committee on Climate Change (IACCC)
Meeting with Representatives of IACCC Member Institutions
IACCC includes representatives of key stakeholders from the government as well as non-
governmental organizations related to climate change: e.g.,
Department of Environment and Natural resources (DENR)
Department of Science and Technology (DOST)
Department of Energy (DOE)
Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA)
National Economic Development Authority (NEDA)
Philippine Network on Climate Change (PNCC) -- a NGO
Department of Transport and Communication
Department of Public Works and Highways
There were ten (10) participants belonging to various member institutions of IACCC in
the meeting: Three of them were from Climate Change Information Center (CCIC), two
from PAGASA, two from Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) and one each
from DFA, DOE, and PNCC.
Dr. M.K Lee gave a brief presentation on the CDM and the present project. All
participants showed strong interest in the project.
A number of questions were asked by the participants following the presentation. The
questions were mainly of technical and operational nature and ranged from whether there
was any formula to calculate the level of carbon sequestration through plantation to those
related to setting baselines. Some participants were particularly interested to know if
there were guidelines available to establish baselines at different levels (i.e., project-wise,
sector-wise as well as national level).
A participant from DOST expressed the view that the national focal point institution for
the present CDM capacity building project should be one from among those who are
familiar with the Philippines stand on Climate Change. A participant from CCIC
informed about the capability of CCIC and expressed that CCIC could be considered as a
candidate for national focal point institution for the project.
22 August 2002
Asian Development Bank
Meeting with Mr. W. M. Pim Kieskamp.
Mr. Kieskamp mainly explained about the Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and
Climate Change (REACH) program.
The REACH program was established in January 2002. It has three funding components:
PREGA (funded by the Netherlands): PREGA is mainly for capacity building.
However, it is also looking at financing mechanisms as well as regulations/policies
for RE and EE projects. It is also discussing the establishment of NCA with
Canadian Cooperation Fund (CCF): A Technical Assistance project on GHG
abatement in China has already been approved . ?and India + Carbon
Sequestration in Indonesia + Adaptation in Pacific islands
Danish Cooperation Fund (DCF): Renewable Energy Efficiency in rural areas for
environment of less than $2500.
The Netherlands Embassy in Manila is to support a study on structure of national CDM
authority (NCA) in the Philippines.
PREGA is stimulating the establishment of NCA in Philippines. There are internal
discussions on issues like; How to structure the NCA? Which ministry it should belong
to? Should it be with DOE or DENR or some other department?
The Netherlands has a 3-track approach on CDM projects:
I. Through direct tender: e.g., CERUPT and ERUPT
II. Financing through multilateral banks (e.g., World Bank, IFC, CAF, ADB):
That is, tying the relevant projects the banks are financing with CDM. (A
negotiation between the Netherlands and ADB was ongoing for a program
under which the Netherlands would make US $67 million available to ADB
for financing the CDM projects.)
III. Bilateral agreements
Philippines Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI)
Meeting with Mr. Jess G. Reyes, Chairman, Environmental Committee of PCCI.
PCCI has an environmental committee with 20 members from different industries.
Active members belong to companies that are trying to meet the environmental standards.
Most PCCI members are small and medium sized companies. Anything that improves
environment and energy efficiency is of interest to them. At present, there is no
information on industry specific energy consumption.
Mr. Reyes also stated that there is very low awareness about the CDM among members
of PCCI and that many members have no idea about the CDM.
23 August 2002
Climate Change Information Center (CCIC)
Meeting with : 1. Dr. Jose T. Villarin, Head, CCIC (joined by his other colleagues)
2. Dr. Daniel J. Mcnamara, S.J., Director, Manila Observatory
CCIC is a part of Manila Observatory and a research center of Ateneo de Manila
University. It was established in 1998. CCIC represents the science group in the
Partnership for Clean Air (PCA)- a non-governmental organization. Staffing at CCIC is
project based. At present, it has six full time technical/professional staff. However, it can
mobilize resource persons from universities and other sources, if necessary
Currently, CCIC is handling a project on capacity development in climate change area
funded by USAID and an urban transport and air quality project funded by APN. It has
conducted training programs on GHG and Environmental Assessment and awareness
raising programs on climate change. Manila Observatory/CCIC also has a number of
climate change and other environment related publications to its credit (e.g., “Tracking
Greenhouse Gases: A Guide for Country Inventory” (a book)).
Barriers to CDM: Lack of awareness was stated as the biggest barrier. Others barriers
mentioned included: (i) Transaction cost (the issues of how to make it low and how to
make the market free were mentioned as examples), (ii) policy barriers (e.g., lack of
policy on CO2 emission or reduction, (iii) barriers related to governance (corruption in
particular which would increase transaction costs and (iv) pulling together small users in
CDM projects in order to make small scale CDM projects attractive/viable.
On needs for CDM capacity building, developing awareness was mentioned as the most
important because most people do not know about the CDM. Once the awareness is
raised, further steps to be taken include development of technical capacity on such
matters as baseline methodology, GHG mitigation assessment etc.
It was stated that the NCA should include representatives from:
Concerned government departments
Also mentioned was the need to strengthen IACCC for establishing NCA (IACCC does
not include any industry sector representative as yet).
Overall, CCIC gave an impression of being a good candidate for a national focal point
institution for the project in the Philippines.
Meeting with Ms. Amelia O. Supetran, Protfolio Manager, Environment.
The UNDP, Philippines has conducted a study through IACCC for the preparation of
CDM framework in order (i) to define a CDM project for the country, (ii) to assess
complete mitigation potential at the national level (The study has included waste sector
which was not covered by ALGAS) and (iii) to identify sectoral priorities and projects.
The Netherlands Embassy in Manila has agreed to fund a one man-month project on the
development of operational framework for the CDM. The Embassy prefers to have the to
define the capacity building needs carried out at this stage. AED is the consultant for it.
The preparatory assessment is going to take stocks of developments in other countries
and describe the current status of the Philippines. The assessment is expected to be
completed in next two months.
It was said that in the next stage, there would be a 1-year activity (tentatively from the
beginning of 2003) focussing on development of an operational framework. It would
address the issues of who should be the CDM Authority as well as legal requirements and
mitigation options like waste sector and others that were not covered by ALGAS. But the
approval of the next stage activity would depend upon the preparatory assessment.
Private sector capacity is very week. There is a greater need for capacity building there.
So far, only few sensitization programs/activities have been carried out. No real capacity
building activity has been undertaken yet. The UCCEE CDM project could make more
effort on capacity building.
Department of Energy (DOE)
Meeting with Mr. Francisco A. Benito, Assistant Secretary and Mr. Clovis T. Tupas
It was stated in the meeting that there were several proposals for energy efficiency
improvement as potential CDM projects. Different parties had approached the DOE in
this respect. However, their proposals could not be considered as the Kyoto Protocol is
not yet ratified by the Philippines. Furthermore, necessary institutional arrangement for
such purpose (i.e., the establishment of a national CDM authority) does not exist at
present and will have to wait till the ratification of the Protocol which, according to Mr.
Benito, is expected by the end of 2002.
Under PREGA, priority would be given to energy efficiency improvement in the
following industries in the Philippines: (a) sugar, (b) cement, (c) pulp and paper and (d)
iron and steel. Renewable sources of power generation are given the priority in the
The role of renewable energy for power generation has been indicated in Philippines
Energy Plan (PEP) which gives a list of RE projects.(?).
Mr. Benito mentioned that main barrier to implement CDM projects is lack of capacity to
handle such projects. Very few people in DOE know about the CDM, and they know it
only in a very general way. People do not have yet a clear picture of how the CDM works
particularly as the operational rules are yet to be set through international negotiations.
The Environmental Protection and Monitoring Division handles the climate change and
other environmental issues at the DOE. Five to six people of this Division deal with the
the climate change issues. However, only few of them are aware of the CDM.
Many agencies are interested in CDM. Financing is a key barrier to the implementation
of CDM. The banks are not familiar with as to how to handle or process the renewable
energy (RE), energy efficiency (EE) projects with or without the CDM. Except the
Development Bank of Philippines (DBP), banks do not have core people to handle RE
and EE projects at present; this also applies in relation to CDM related projects.
Ongoing initiatives of DOE include:
1. Partnership for energy responsive companies (PERC)
2. Partnership for energy responsive zones
3. Subsidized energy audits to identify possible emission mitigation options and
training of energy managers.
Philippine Network on Climate Change (PNCC)
Meeting with Mr. Ramon Faustino M. Sales Jr., Assistant Vice-President, Philippines
Rural Reconstruction Movement (PRRM).
PNCC was set up 8 years ago and comprises 8 national NGOs. It represents NGOs in
IACCC. PRRM serves as the secretariat of PNCC. PNCC is involved in activities for
raising awareness of civil society on climate change issues. Its efforts are also focussed
on CDM and towards the ratification of the Kyoto Protocol.
Mr. Sales, Jr., expressed the view that while capacity building on climate change (CC)
issues is a positive development, more emphasis should be given to adaptation measures
and on establishing a national adaptation authority. He was informed that the mandate of
the present project is for capacity building on CDM. As such, adaptation issues have to
be dealt with under different projects or programs.
Mr. Sales, Jr. pointed out lack of full time staff and financial resources to address CC
issues as a barrier. Due to lack of funding, it was not possible for PNCC to attend CC
negotiations in COP meetings. Further, he said that even at IACCC, CC issues cannot get
adequate attention as there are only two people to deal with CC issues besides their other
responsibilities at EMB which is the IACCC secretariat.
