The Climate Change Commission (CCC), since its establishment in 2009 through Republic Act No. 9729, as amended, has taken the lead as the climate policy-making body of the Government. In coordination with relevant national agencies and institutions, the academe, the private sector, and development partners, the CCC has formulated appropriate policies and has initiated a number of programs and projects to address climate change. Such policies and programs in the country focus on the essential pillars of climate action: adaptation and mitigation, and their means of implementation: financing and technological solutions.
NICCDIES serves as the integrated climate information portal of the CCC to track the actions necessary to address climate change issues. NICCDIES is the primary enabling platform of the CCC in consolidating and monitoring, among other things, data and information on climate change and climate action from sources and actors coming from both public and private sector and other stakeholders, allowing for decision-makers to access, distribute, and exchange these data for use in policymaking, development planning, and investment decision-making.
NICCDIES modernizes the way we keep, analyze, integrate, track, monitor, and present climate actions and reports.
The primary components of NICCDIES include database and information systems for the following:
