MANILA, 16 February 2022 — The Climate Change Commission (CCC) will hold National Climate Change Expenditure Tagging (CCET) training sessions this February, an annual activity under the national budgeting process, in coordination with the Department of Budget and Management (DBM).
The sessions form part of continuing efforts to build the capacity of national institutions in mainstreaming climate change in the domestic plans and programs of the country.
The CCET provides an avenue for National Government Agencies (NGAs), State Universities and Colleges (SUCs), and Government Owned- and Controlled-Corporations (GOCCs) to assess the alignment and scale of mobilization of public funds based on the National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP). Further, the CCET classifies public expenditures between climate change adaptation and mitigation through the use of typologies mirroring the NCCAP.
Below are the scheduled CCET sessions:
a. Orientation for Government-Owned and -Controlled Corporations (GOCCs)
21 February 2022 (PM Session)
b. Orientation for State Universities and Colleges (SUCs)
22 February 2022 (Luzon – AM Session)
22 February 2022 (Visayas – PM Session)
23 February 2022 (Mindanao – AM Session)
c. Orientation for Program Convergence Budgeting for Risk Resiliency Program (PCB- RRP)
23 February 2022 (PM Session)
d. Orientation for National Government Agencies (NGAs)
24 February 2022 (AM Session)
The sessions will include discussions on Introduction to Climate Change, Linkage of CCET to the Philippine Development Plan, Sustainable Development Goals, and NCCAP; Overview of Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation – Disaster Risk Reduction; and Entering CCET to the Online Budget Submission Portal.
The CCET was established through Joint Memorandum Circular (JMC) 2013-01 of the CCC and the DBM, which was amended through DBM-CCC JMC 2015-01 to be consistent with the development of an outcome-based budgeting system.
