CD4CDM-Philippines IACCC Expansion Proposal IACCC expansion to include representatives from the Private Sector.
CD4CDM-Philippines Activity A1.1 Consultations with stakeholders, the IACCC, and legal experts in the designation of the CDM NA 3 options: -a legal opinion from the Office of the President on the extent of coverage of the existing mandate of the contemplated entity - revision of the Administrative Order on the existing legal issuance to cover the additional functions as NA -issuance of the President of a Memorandum Order for this additional task Activities

CD4CDM-Philippines Project Implementation A2 Development of the National CDM Operational Framework Objective: To enable the optimum and efficient functioning of the NA through the provision of a clear National CDM Operational Framework Output: National Authority’s Management System
CD4CDM-Philippines Activity A2.1 Review past and available literature on the existing policies and identify gaps and constraints, and provide recommendations to address these gaps to facilitate entry and implementation of CDM projects Activity A2.2 Craft new/supplementary policies and legal issuances to address the identified gaps and constraints Project Implementation
CD4CDM-Philippines Activity A2.3 Adopt national sustainable development criteria and indicators for use in the CDM assessment process. Activity A2.4 Develop Systems and Procedures, with clear accountabilities and timeframes within the NA system –A business “process map” Activity A2.5 Develop protocols and supplementary tools to implement the systems and procedures Project Implementation
CD4CDM-Philippines Activity A2.6 Develop the documentary requirements of the NA to enable it to assess the CDM proposal and to issue the necessary endorsement and approval to the CDM Executive Board Activity A2.7 Pilot test the designated management system Activity A2.8 Prepare and issue the necessary legal and administrative issuances to operationalize the management system Project Implementation
