Local government units (LGUs) across the Philippines joined the live virtual workshop last September 21 on risk-based planning using decision-support tools co-produced by the OML Center.
The “LEVEL-APP YOUR LCCAP: Workshop on Risk-Based Climate Planning Tools,” guided local planners toward a more evidence-based planning approach to their local climate change action plans (LCCAP). Participants included LGU representatives from Camarines Sur, Leyte, Sorsogon, and Davao Occidental, among others. Representatives from the Climate Change Commission, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, First Balfour, First Gen Corp., Lasallian Institute for the Environment, National Economic and Development Authority, and Rice Watch Action Network also joined the workshop.
OMLC Knowledge Production Manager Ayn Torres provided a refresher on risk-based climate adaptation planning, while Research Associate Alfi Lorenz Cura illustrated how the eCCET Helper and Upturn Tool can be applied to local planning needs. Participants were also given an opportunity to have a hands-on walk-through on how to use the online tools.
The workshop was designed as a capacity-building workshop for local planners ahead of the symposium 12 titled “Future-Proofing PH Communities: A Multisectoral Dialogue on Bridging Climate Knowledge to Action” which will be held on October 12. Both aforementioned events are part of the series of events to celebrate OML Center’s 10th anniversary.
The symposium will be of particular interest to collaborators in the climate change space from national and local governments, research and academe, private sector, civil society organizations, and advocacy communities.
