Title: A Strategic Approach to Climate Change in the Philippines: An Assessment of Low-Carbon Interventions in the Transport and Power Sectors (Study commissioned by the World Bank)


1
A Strategic Approach to Climate Change in the
Philippines An Assessment of Low-Carbon
Interventions in the Transport and Power
Sectors (Study commissioned by the World Bank)
CEBU CITY TRANSPORT STUDIES COORDINATION
CONFERENCE 9 May 2009, Cebu City
  • George Esguerra
  • Study Team Leader
  • Transport and Traffic Planners, Inc.

2
Context of Study
  • Philippines is minor emitter of GHG (less than
    0.3 of global GHG emissions)
  • Emissions on the rise due to energy use and land
    use changes
  • Increasing number of development projects
    offering opportunities for cost effective
    mitigation and adaptation
  • The World Bank adopted a new development paradigm
    - Development and Climate Change A Strategic
    Framework for the World Bank Group (October
    2008)
  • Transport and power sectors provide potential for
    high net-return interventions

3
Related Work
  • ADB Asia Least-Cost GHG Abatement Strategy
    (ALGAS, 1998) - study on 12 Asian countries
    covering 1990 GHG inventories, emission
    projections to 2020, and analysis of mitigation
    options
  • ADB Regional Review of the Economics of Climate
    Change in Southeast Asia (RRECCS, 2009) - focus
    on Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand,
    and Vietnam
  • Follow-on to Carbon Cutting Congress vs. Climate
    Change (November 2008)
  • Preparation of Second National Communication on
    Climate Change (PTF on Climate Change)

4
Recent Developments
  • Administrative Order 254, dated 30 January 2009,
    calling for the formulation of National EST
    Strategy for the Philippines (led by UPNCTS with
    government agencies)
  • DOE-led Alternative Fuels Program (biofuels)
  • DENR-led National Economic and Environmental
    Development Study (NEEDS)
  • New initiatives to improve public transport
    operation/ introduce BRT in Metro Manila and
    Metro Cebu
  • Ayala BRT Study (Ayala Center to Fort Bonifacio)
  • World Bank/MMDA Development of Bus Rapid Transit
    for Metro Manila
  • World Bank/MMDA CDM Project for EDSA Organized
    Bus Route
  • World Bank/Cebu City Study and Concept Plan for a
    Demonstration Bus Rapid Transit Corridor
  • ADB-CDIA Feasibility Study on the South Road
    Properties (SRP) - BRT

5
Study Objectives
  • To evaluate the potential for GHG reduction in
    the transport and power sectors over the
    immediate, medium and long term periods (up to
    2030)
  • To assess low-carbon interventions based on
    cost-effectiveness analysis
  • To prepare implementation strategies taking into
    account policy, regulatory, institutional,
    technological, market, and other barriers

6
Study Framework (Transport)
7
Scope of the Study
  • Task 1 Review of developments in the transport
    and power sectors
  • Task 2 Identification of emission reduction
    interventions
  • Task 3 Development of an approach and
    methodology for assessing cost-effectiveness
  • Task 4 Estimation of emissions for baseline and
    low-carbon scenarios
  • Task 5 Identification of development barriers
    and formulation of implementation strategies

8
Programmatic Approach
  • Likely programs to be evaluated
  • Optimization of operation in public transport
    routes
  • BRT introduction in key metropolitan areas and
    cities
  • Freight transport and logistics coordination
  • Energy efficient vehicles
  • Motor vehicle inspection and maintenance
  • Non-motorized transport
  • Urban land use planning

9
Recent Discussions on Follow-on Work
  • UPNCTS Further study on emission factors under
    Philippine driving conditions, particularly
    paratransit modes (jeepneys and tricycles)
  • CAI-Asia Proposed Study on Emissions from the
    Philippines Inter-city and Intra-city Road
    Transport
