CCS was tasked by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to, provide third party verification of GHG inventories for six local areas (provinces and municipalities) of the Philippines which support local climate action plans. CCS conducted a comprehensive review of each municipal emissions report, including on site data collection and interviews to develop independent emissions estimates to evaluate the quality of reported emission estimates. During each site visit, CCS also provided technical support to each local area by identifying key issues in the GHG reporting for use in climate action plan development and methodologies to address these concerns. 

The following local areas were addressed: Aurora Province, Batangas City, Kalayaan Municipality, Makati City, Pasig City, and Santa Rosa City. A report of the key findings for the project can be found here
