Presentation Transcript

  1. Philippine Experience in Training in Cambodia Training on the Preparation of the National Communication on Climate Change and CDM

  2. Outline of Presentation • Context of Cooperation • Training Activities • Results/Critical Success Factors • Barriers and Constraints • Lessons Learned • Other South-South Collaboration on Climate Change Activities

  3. Context of Cooperation • Preparation of the National Communication • Training on Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) Implementing Agency-Cambodia; Requesting agency and beneficiary (for the training) Implementing Agency-Philippines

  4. Areas of Cooperation/Training Activities Preparation of the National Communication on Climate Change • The Philippine Team of experts was requested to conduct a 10-day training on the Preparation of the National Communication on Climate Change in Phnom Penh, Cambodia in 1999, sponsored by UNITAR. • The objective is to train the Cambodia’s National Climate Change Team on: • Guidelines for the Preparation of the National Communication from Non-Annex 1 Parties • GHG Emissions Inventory • Methods and Techniques for Vulnerability and Adaptation Assessment Mitigation

  5. Areas of Cooperation/Training Activities Training on the CDM • CDM Training for the Cambodia Climate Change Office was conducted, upon the request of the Cambodian Government, a part of the fulfillment of the objective of the CD4CDM to “strengthen their capacity on the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM)” • 3-Day training (March 29-31, 2004) at Phnom Penh, Cambodia • Phils. CD4CDM team shared technical expertise with the Cambodian team through the conduct of intensive technical workshops/exercises

  6. Results/ Critical Success Factors • Sharing of technical expertise between Philippines and Cambodia • Exchange of implementation experiences, and learning from these experiences • Similarities in political, economic situations, hence richer and more meaningful discussions of problems and solutions • Tailor-fitted approach in training and use of up-to-date information to maximize capacity building impacts • “learning by doing” approach (i.e. use of actual project in Cambodia as case in point for all hand-on exercises – later became the 1st CDM registered project in Cambodia)

  7. Barriers and Constraints • Lack of funding for the training • Language barrier • CDM as a new, and still emerging, concept • Lack of clear and functional CDM institutional structures (in 2004) for both countries • Rapidly evolving rules for CDM which can be hard to continuously digest

  8. Lessons Learned • Tailor-fitting the training best serves the target audience’s interests and needs • “learning by doing” is still the most effective training • Need for constant collaboration and exchange of crucial information among other developing countries • Capacity building is a continuous process, hence programs should be designed to nurture/strengthen the capacities of major players

  9. Other South-South Collaborationon Climate Change • Training on Hydrographic modelling technique • Bangkok, Thailand, May 16-22, 2002 • Regional Study (AS07) for the Assessment of Impacts and Adaptation to Climate Change (AIACC) trained staff (Philippines and Indonesia) from the AS21 Study on the SEA-Basin hydrographical modelling on a watershed runoff model. • Training courses and technical assistance for scientists from Indo-China (Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia) • Los Baños, Laguna, Philippines • 6 scientists/experts from Indo-China were trained by AIACC-AS21 team/trainers • Training-Workshop for Bhutan Local Scientists: Methodologies in Assessing Climate Change Impacts on Local Communities • Bhutan, May 3-14, 2004

  11. “Think climate!” – Klaus Toepfer, ExecutiveDirector of UNEP Countries are the Parties to the Convention and the Kyoto Protocol. Therefore, it must be the governments who should ensure that commitments made in terms of GHG emissions reduction and sustainable development are met. Nonetheless, private sector participation must be optimized to ensure the sustainability of CDM projects…
