The Government is spending more than P100 billion on climate change mitigating projects this year and next, Budget Secretary Florencio Abad said on the sidelines of the inauguration of a solar power project. Government investments in climate change measures nearly doubled in the last three years, and have reached about P100 billion or 4 percent of the 2015 budget, Abad said. On top of that, under the bottom-up budgeting process, community organizations in the grassroots level identified about P1.6 billion worth of related activities, Abad said.
