Poor countries and poor communities remain the victims of anthropogenic climate injustice. While the Philippines contributes less than 0.4% to the climate crisis, the global north is responsible for 92% of annual global carbon dioxide emissions.
The Philippines is one of the most typhoon impacted countries globally, with about 20 tropical cyclones traversing the country’s area of responsibility each year. On 16 December 2021, super typhoon Rai, locally known as Odette, made its landfall in the Philippines.
The Philippine Climate Change Assessment (PhilCCA) Working Group 1: The Physical Science Basis is a scientific assessment of climate change for the Philippines and describes the local climate system of the country in comparison to the global picture.
