3 3 1. Strengths of CD4CDM institutions for capacity building 1.Partnership between government (DENR) and private institution (klima) in conducting capacity building activities DENR is able to concentrate its efforts in building operational framework of the Philippine DNA and strengthening/enhancing government-to-government initiatives/relations with regards to CDM; Klima does the day-to-day implementation of the CD4CDM project: identify key strategies, conduct capacity building activities (i.e. technical training, awareness raising, consultancies etc), reach out to various stakeholders, promotes CDM projects pipeline)
