PBBM calls world leaders to support PH’s bid to host ‘Loss and Damage Fund’ at COP28 Summit in Dubai – Presidential Communications Office

President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. called on world leaders on Friday for the prompt operationalization of the “Loss and Damage Fund” in a bid to support developing and vulnerable countries from the impact of the climate crisis as he asked support for the Philippines’ bid to host the fund.

In his speech delivered by Special Assistant to the President Antonio Ernesto Lagdameo Jr., President Marcos said that the Philippines is pushing for just transition, and loss and damage financing as he emphasized that “the Philippines will announce its intent to host the Loss and Damage Fund.”

“The Philippines’ call for the immediate operationalization of this Fund to assist developing and vulnerable countries to respond to droughts, floods, and rising sea levels exacerbated by climate change,” President Marcos said.

“We urge partners from the private sector, civil society, partner countries and governments, and developing funding institutions to support the Philippines in this bid. You have been there for meaningful collaboration with our government to tackle the climate crises,” he added.

President Marcos made the remarks during the opening of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28) Philippine Pavilion themed “Together Today for Tomorrow” on Friday afternoon, Dubai time.

Loss and Damage Fund refers to the costs of recovering from climate impact.

President Marcos said that the Philippines has always been at the forefront of climate issues.
