The National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP) outlines the Government’s programs and activities for adaptation and mitigation in line with national development plans. This long-term plan was developed through a multi-sectoral and multi-stakeholder consultation and covers the thematic priorities of food security, water sufficiency, ecosystem and environmental stability, human security, climate smart industries and services, sustainable energy, knowledge and capacity development. The NCCAP is treated as the document in which the development of national commitments and disclosures such as Nationally Determined Contributions and the National Adaptation Plan is derived.
In 2017, the NCCAP Results-Based Monitoring and Evaluation System (RBMES) was formulated to measure the progress of the NCCAP implemented by national government agencies. The first NCCAP M&E (2011-2016) looked into the readiness/ preparedness of the Philippine Government in mainstreaming climate change into its decision-making processes (i.e. policies, institutional arrangements, knowledge and information systems, flagship programs).
