The United Nations Development Programme, 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. It is mainly focused on the priority economic sectors of the country: agriculture, representing 10% of the GDP; manufacturing, representing over half of the country’s industrial sector; construction, one of the main contributors to the growth together with manufacturing; and transport, a key sector due to the geographical specificities of the Philippines.
This virtual parallel session will be held to discuss key results and highlights of the study and how national government, local governments, and private sector can lead the way in reframing and rewriting the Philippines’ development trajectory towards a greener one.
