PhilCCA WG3: Mitigation of Climate Change
The Oscar M. Lopez Center, in partnership with the Climate Change Commission, released the Philippine Climate Change Assessment Working Group 3 (PhilCCA WG3) Report. The report is the first-ever comprehensive assessment of scientific literature on climate change mitigation in the Philippines. The PhilCCA WG3 Report is the third installment of three volumes.
Authored by some of the country's leading scientists, the report includes chapters on State of Global Atmospheric Concentrations of Greenhouse Gases and the Duty of the Philippines as a Signatory to the UNFCCC, Institutional Arrangements and Policies Related to Mitigation, the Philippine National Greenhouse Gas Inventories, Approaches to Climate Change Mitigation, and Mitigation Pathways and Measures in the Context of Sustainable Development.

Climate change is a global challenge, but it affects each locality differently.
In order to make climate-smart decisions, then, it is critical that we have up-to-date, localized climate knowledge. A sound scientific basis allows decision-makers to evaluate the environmental and socio-economic consequences of climate change, and to formulate realistic response strategies.
Climate knowledge in the Philippines, however, is still in its infancy. While at the international level the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) provides the world with a clear scientific view of the current state of knowledge on global climate change, we lack the same authoritative body in the Philippines.
To address this, we partnered with the Climate Change Commission to produce the Philippine Climate Change Assessment Report (PhilCCA).
The PhilCCA synthesizes scientific information from international and local literature in order to provide an assessment of climate change for the Philippines and identify gaps in the scientific literature. It contains comprehensive information on climate change science in the Philippines that can guide everyone in making strategic decisions.
The PhilCCA will have three volumes, namely:
