Strengthening the mainstreaming of climate change in domestic plans and programs necessitates allocation of public funds for the implementation of climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies. Recognizing this, the Climate Change Commission, the Department of Budget and Management, and the Department of the Interior and Local Government led the institutionalization of Climate Change Expenditure Tagging (CCET) in national and subnational budget programming and expenditure tracking processes. The policy framework governing local CCET is DBM-CCC-DILG Joint Memorandum Circular 2015-01 which requires local governments to tag their climate change adaptation and mitigation programs in their annual investment plans.
As the CCET requires the government to keep track of climate adaptation and mitigation actions in all levels of budgeting (i.e. Agency Request, National Expenditure Program, General Appropriations Act, Annual Investment Program) with the use of climate change typologies, data can be obtained to take stock of climate change PAPs and their characteristics (i.e. sector, type of delivery, NCCAP alignment, budget). This supports progress tracking of the implementation of the NCCAP, and at the same time contributes to surfacing investment gaps, areas, sectors, and type of action taken by the Government.
In compliance to DBM-CCC-DILG JMC 2015-01, the submission of the AIP-CCET to the LGU CCET Help Desk shall be use the following Excel format:
Subject: CCET FY [20xx] LGU [City/Municipality/Province] [Type], [Province]
Example: CCET FY 2021 LGU Batangas City, Batangas
You may also submit past AIP-CCET files in contribution to strengthening the CCET database for local governments to inform future policy discussions and decision-making.

The CCET Help Desk is currently consolidating FY 2016-2020 Local CCET data. Please visit the website during the latter part of 2021 for the comprehensive report.
