MAAYON, Capiz — The Climate Change Commission (CCC) conducted capacity enhancement activity on Greenhouse Gas Inventory (GHGI) and local Climate Change Expenditure Tagging (CCET) in Maayon, Capiz.
The training was attended by more than 30 representatives from the Provincial Government of Capiz, the Municipal Government of Maayon, Department of Interior and Local Government Regional Office, and private sector.
“This training is one of the series of capacity development training that we have been looking forward to as it composes our Climate Disaster and Risk Assessment (CDRA) for adaptation, and Greenhouse Gas Inventory for mitigation,” said Maayon Mayor Raymond Malapajo.
The capacity enhancement activity aims to boost the LGU’s capacity on sectoral GHGI and local CCET in order to support the municipality in completing their enhanced Local Climate Change Action Plan (eLCCAP).
"LCCAP is a development plan that contains both adaptation and mitigation actions of LGUs. We conduct GHG inventory to provide science-based information for coming up with mitigation strategies. These strategies must then be reflected and tagged in the local CCET Annual Investment Programs," explained Sandee Recabar, Chief of CCC’s Implementation Oversight Division, on the fundamental objective of LCCAP formulation.
At the end of the training, the Ma-ayon LGU was able to develop a draft GHGI report for the fiscal year 2022. Mitigation investments were also embedded in the LCCET.
"Our CDRA journey with the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (MDRRMO) has never been easy, but I am grateful [to] our LCCAP technical working group for conducting four workshops in the span of two years. And now, we are working on our GHG inventory to complete our LCCAP," Mayor Malapajo added.
The CCC also paid a courtesy call on Mayor Malapajo and Vice Mayor Jose Dapulaza prior to the start of the activity.
