The Philippines, through the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), renewed its partnership with the United Kingdom on climate and environment during the 3rd UK-PH Climate Change and Environment Dialogue. The dialogue culminated in the signing of a renewed Partnership Agreement on Climate Change and Environment.
The Agreement lays the groundwork for deeper collaboration between the Philippines and the United Kingdom towards enhancing climate resilience, driving down global emissions, and protecting and restoring the environment. Moreover, both countries committed to working together to deliver shared priority objectives: enhancing the resilience of respective economies, ecosystems, and communities; accelerating clean energy transition; mobilizing climate finance; and driving inclusive, cross-sectoral collaboration to achieve these goals.
The UK is an active leader in working towards net zero and is committed to supporting efforts to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees, increasing access to climate finance through both the public and private sectors, and ensuring the international system works for climate-vulnerable countries like the Philippines.
The PH-UK Dialogue demonstrates the extensive cross-government and cross-sectoral conversations and strong policy direction on the climate and environment agenda under this administration.
