UNDP NDC SUPPORT PROJECT FOR THE PHILIPPINES (NSPP) Project ID No. 00109317 ADVERTISEMENT FOR HIRING Web Developer for the National Integrated Climate Change Database and Information Exchange System (NICCDIES) A.    BACKGROUND INFORMATION AND RATIONALE, PROJECT DESCRIPTION The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s Global Development Network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. UNDP’s core vision is to help countries achieve simultaneous eradication of poverty and significant reduction of inequalities and exclusion through three main areas of work which are: (1) sustainable development (2) inclusive and effective democratic governance, and (3) climate and disaster resilience. At the UN climate change conference in Paris in December 2015, countries adopted the Paris Agreement that sets out a global action plan for limiting global warming to “well below 2 degrees C” starting from 2020. The Agreement, which entered into force on 4 November 2016, built upon the foundation of climate pledges from 187 countries, known as Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).  In solidarity with the international community, the Philippine Government submitted its INDC on October 1, 2015.  The Climate Change Commission (CCC) led the preparation of this submission.   The President signed the Instrument of Accession for the Paris Agreement on 28 February 2017. The Senate of the Philippines unanimously adopted a resolution concurring to the accession on 14 March 2017. The Instrument of Accession was accepted/approved by the UNFCCC on 23 March 2017 and it officially entered into force on 22 April 2017. The Government is currently finalizing its NDC for submission to the UNFCCC. The Philippine Government through CCC was granted support funds by the European Community for the development of its I/NDC Action Plan under the UNDP Low Emission Capacity Building Philippine (LECB PHL) Project.  The main output of this technical assistance is the development of the country’s NDC Roadmap/Framework which included: (a) proposed institutional structure/organization and arrangements for designing, formulating and implementing the NDCs; and (b) documentation/ institutionalization of NDC preparation, planning, formulation and implementation processes. The CCC, also through the UNDP LECB PHL Project, has developed the MRV System Framework for the AWIT-FE  sectors.  The Government is faced with the important challenge of transforming its I/NDC into tangible actions that would lead to long term, zero-carbon and climate-resilient development. Like other countries it needs sustained financial, capacity building and technical support to regularly prepare, implement, and report on national actions under the PA and more specifically against NDC targets for reducing GHGs.  The UNDP NDC Support Programme supports Governments to achieve transformational change by using NDC implementation as a mechanism to scale up investment in climate change and deliver sustainable development. The Programme is implemented in the country as “NDC Support Project for the Philippines (NSPP)”.  For this project, UNDP is engaged in a range of strategic partnerships through the NDC Support Programme, with the IKI NDC Support Cluster, the NDC Partnership, the LEDS Global Partnership, and the Partnership on Transparency in the Paris Agreement.  Among the areas of support to advance NDC implementation is to strengthen measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) capacity and national data-sharing mechanisms to better analyze and communicate progress against NDC targets and mitigation actions.

The Agreement, which entered into force on 4 November 2016, built upon the foundation of climate pledges from 187 countries, known as Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Countries are expected to submit updated and more ambitious NDCs every five years which will become the main vehicle for illustrating a country’s strategic vision on climate change in the context of sustainable development. The UNDP NDC Support Programme will support Governments to achieve transformational change by using NDC implementation as a mechanism to scale up investment in climate change and deliver sustainable development. The Programme is being implemented in the country as “NDC Support Project for the Philippines (NSPP)”. For the NSPP, UNDP is engaged in a range of strategic partnerships through the NDC Support Programme, including the IKI NDC Support Cluster, the NDC Partnership, the LEDS Global Partnership, and the Partnership on Transparency in the Paris Agreement.  The Project recognizes that effective communications management strategy plays an important role in change management, i.e., in breaking down resistance to change by getting everyone on the same page and helping stakeholders become engaged, recognize the need for change, and the steps being taken to bring the change about. The development of information and education materials would fulfill the role of raising awareness on the necessity to mitigate and adapt to climate change, and of providing information on the NDC and the private sector’s role in climate action.
