Implementation Period: 2016 - Present



Efforts to defeat poverty and promote social justice will be challenging to sustain unless measures are undertaken to help the poor and highly vulnerable communities adapt to climate change.

Studies from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have shown that current and future shifts in temperature and rainfall regimes will have significant impacts, mostly adverse on agriculture, forestry, water and coastal resources, health, and urban areas. These have serious implications on our food and water security, energy sufficiency, human security, and ecological and environmental stability.

It is in this context that CCC’s Communities for Resilience (CORE): Capacity Building Training Program is conceptualized and implemented. The CORE Capacity Building Training Program incorporates the country’s National Framework Strategy on Climate Change 2010-2022, National Climate Change Action Plan 2011-2028, and National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Plan 2011-2018, as well as the post-2015 global frameworks for development, namely: the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030; Sustainable Development Goals 2030; and the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement.
