Energy department calls for foreign funding of global warming measures

THE Department of Energy (DoE) has asked the Climate Change Commission (CCC) for a plan to access international funding to help the country adapt to global warming, Energy Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi said.

“The Philippines has done a lot. So we are asking the developed countries, those who have money, to help us adapt,” Mr. Cusi said.

However, he said he was not aware of any move from the developed countries to come up with ways for the Philippines to access funds to help climate-vulnerable countries adapt to climate change. He said he also do not know exactly how much is available for the country.

Mr. Cusi said the Cabinet discussed the issue “extensively” last week, during which the Energy department presented its stand on the country’s pledge during the climate summit in Paris.
