Waste, including marine litter, is one of the most pressing issues in the Philippines and a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). This complex challenge requires a systemic approach and a shift to a circular economic model. With the generous support of the Government of Japan, UNDP Philippines is supporting the government in achieving its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) through enabling and accelerating the country’s transition to circular economy (CE). By doing so, it will help the country achieve economic, social, and environmental goals, while also grasping the potential for substantial and accelerated reductions in GHG emissions across all sectors, while also supporting recovery from the pandemic.
The project, which entails a demonstration of how CE can be implemented at the city level, is expected to benefit national government agencies, local government units (LGUs) in the target cities, participating private sector companies (including micro and small enterprises), academic and science organizations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), informal waste collectors as well as communities and households through access to data and utilization of data platform, policy support at national and subnational level, CE solutions/business models, partnerships, and knowledge exchange, capacity building. This will be delivered through three main outputs:
The project will be implemented in five (5) cities which are (indicative) Pasig, Caloocan, Quezon City, Manila and Cotabato City, and will work with the following stakeholders:
The ACE Project seeks to contribute in achieving the NDC of the Philippines as committed by government under the 2015 Paris Agreement. The results framework of the ACE Project identifies climate change mitigation indicators such as tons of CO2 avoided or reduced, megawatts of renewable or low-emission energy capacity installed, generated or rehabilitated, among others. The stakeholders of the ACE Project likewise require technical assistance in identifying mitigation strategies to realize a circular economy. UNDP requires the services of a Climate Change Mitigation Expert who will exercise technical leadership in this field.
