About the Theme
The Philippines is the world’s fifth most vulnerable country to climate and disaster risks (having dropped from first place in 2013), yet it is responsible for only 0.25 percent of global carbon emissions. Climate change negatively affects all vital sectors of the economy, including agriculture, fisheries, energy production, and transportation. The Philippines faces economic losses from climate change amounting to 2.5 percent of the gross domestic product annually, with losses expected to approach $418 billion in 2030. Still, the country is currently the second fastest growing economy in Asia.
The question is, how can the Philippines achieve economic growth and fight poverty while also tacking climate change impacts and natural hazards?
