Philippines 2019-2021 Design Report – For Public Comment

In 2021, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the Design Report for the Philippines’ fifth action plan. The report covers the action plan development process and the design of commitments.

In the Philippines, the IRM’s findings are summarized below:

The Philippines’ fifth action plan contains a strong focus on citizen participation, from public monitoring of schools and infrastructure to increased participation in local governance. Admirably, a highly collaborative, bottom-up co-creation process led to a Citizens’ Agenda that informed action plan design. While individually, most commitments are not ambitious, the action plan’s focus on participation may be a foundation to address civic space issues more broadly in future action plans.

The report is available in English. The public comment period closed 1 September 2021.
