Parallel Session on UNDP's Study: "Greening of the Philippines’ Recovery and Resilience Strategies"

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), with support from the Government of the United Kingdom, and in collaboration with Global Factor and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, has undertaken a study on green recovery in the Philippines. The study aims to take advantage of the opportunity to redesign the development trajectory of the country after the COVID-19 pandemic towards a greener and more sustainable one.  

This virtual session will be held on 10 November 2022, 10:30 AM – 12:00 NN (Philippines time), via Zoom to discuss the key results and highlights of the study and how the national government, local governments, and private sector can lead the way in reframing and rewriting the Philippines’ development trajectory towards a greener one. 

Specifically, the parallel session aims to: 

  • Present the highlights of the report’s comparison of the Philippines taking a business-as-usual approach versus green recovery simulations;  
  • Present green recovery entry points and recommendations for the country’s agriculture, construction, manufacturing, and transport sectors;  
  • Present selected LGUs’ initiatives aligned with green recovery and key takeaways from these efforts;  
  • Gather perspectives of technical and policy experts and representatives from national agencies; local government units, private sector, non-government organizations, academia, and other stakeholders on green recovery efforts and its adoption in the country.
