Philippines Integrated Rural Accessibility Planning Data
IRAP consists of a set of tools for use at the local government level to identify and prioritize investments in rural areas that will improve the access of the rural population to basic needs and social and economic goods, services and facilities. The ILO started the IRAP program with Sida/USAID financial support in 1989 in 3 pilot provinces. Since 1992 the Dutch Government has provided financial assistance to the program and will continue doing this until December 2002. The project now covers all the Provinces in the country and has been incorporated into the local government planning system.
