The Climate Change Commission is seeking revisions in the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of the Climate Change Act of 2009 (RA 9729) so that the Commission can more fully implement its mandate and functions.
In its desire to be participative, inclusive and transparent, and also to comply with Sec. 22 of RA 9729, the Commission, through an IRR Revisions Committee, has called for a series of consultations with various government agencies, LGUs, civil society groups, non-government organizations and the academe.
After the consultation series (which is launched mainly in the form of focus group discussions), there will be a period in which any additional comments from the stakeholders can be sent in for consideration. Also during this period, there will be email communications and possible meetings with government and civil society representatives. Afterwards, a Writeshop will be convened to consolidate all of the proposed suggestions into the IRR.
The final step is the IRR Revisions Committee Chairperson, Commissioner Naderev Saño, submits the revised IRR to the Commission for approval.
The consultation series and Writeshop is being supported by the GIZ.
