Philippines: Secondary Education Development and Improvement Project

sector: Education | country: Philippines

More innovative cost sharing arrangements need to be developed so that poor local government units (LGUs) are not hindered from participating in programs that require counterpart equity. Under the Secondary Education Development and Improvement Project in the Philippines, LGU involvement was incorporated into the school building program to promote partnership with local stakeholders. The program required LGUs to provide 25% of the construction costs for the required school facilities. Unfortunately, most participating LGUs found it difficult to provide equity funds which led to postponed construction. [PVR Main text, para. 21; see also PCR Main text, para. 21]
