Project Climate Twin Phoenix – Resilience and Preparedness towards Inclusive Development (PCTP-RAPID)
The RAPID Program is an expansion of Project Climate Twin Phoenix which implemented prior interventions in Regions X and XI to support risk-sensitive recovery planning after Tropical Storm Washi and Typhoon Bopha devastated the regions. It is envisioned to strengthen the capacity and preparedness of 12 Haiyan-affected local government units (LGUs) in Samar and Leyte and their coastline communities, to manage disaster risks and adapt to the overall impacts of climate change towards resilient and sustainable development.
The Program is implemented by the UNDP, through the Direct Implementation Modality, with funding assistance from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade of the Australian Government. As part of the UNDP’s work to consider the implications for national and sub-national planning and budgeting processes of the recently agreed Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Agenda 2030, and as input to the value-adding objectives of the RAPID Program, a Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction Public Expenditure and Institutional Review (CC-DRR PEIR) would be undertaken to lead to a greater awareness and prioritization of CC and DRR across public investment portfolios in the Philippines for the achievement of SDGs relating to sustainability, resilience and climate change, as well as providing support to poverty reduction.
The CC-DRR PEIR is an emerging and developing methodology that is built on the approach and experiences of UNDP’s work on Climate Public Expenditure and Institutional Reviews (CPEIR) which have been undertaken in countries around the region including Nepal, Bangladesh, Thailand, Samoa, and Cambodia.
Under the CC-DRR PEIR, an examination on the links between the three spheres of national climate change and disaster risk management (CC-DRR) policy, the institutional structures through which policy is channeled, and the process of resources allocation where public funding (both national and international) is made available for the implementation of relevant projects and programs. Specifically, CC-DRR PEIR will:
The CC-DRR PEIR is intended to assist the development of better understanding of:
CC-DRR PEIR accommodates national variations in the interpretation and classification of CC and DRR actions. The conduct and output of the CC-DRR PEIR are expected to contribute to mainstreaming climate change and disaster risk reduction by raising awareness of strategy and policy issues, promoting the efficient and effective use of resources, assessing policy formulation and implementation thereby contributing in a practical way to greater co-operation among between diverse stakeholders. The study will therefore make practical recommendations for future actions and interventions to improve the management of climate change and disaster-related finance and mainstreaming CCA and DRR into development processes.
The CC-DRR PEIR approach has the potential to become a benchmark reference that will allow policy makers assess the present status of the national, provincial, and municipal local government units (LGUs) response to climate and disaster risks.
The Consultant will conduct the CC-DRR PEIR Study at the National level, in close coordination with NEDA< OCD, DILG and DBM, and with thte LGUs for the case study at the sub-national level from march-September 2018.
