Philippine Rural Development Project

The Philippine Rural Development Project (PRDP) is a six-year national government project implemented by the DA which aims to i) increase rural incomes, and enhance farm and fishery productivity in 16 regions and 80 provinces and ii) make the agriculture and fishery sector more market-oriented and climate-resilient. Specifically, the project seeks to achieve the following: i) at least 5 percent increase annually in real household incomes of farmer beneficiaries; ii) 30 percent increase in incomes of beneficiaries involved with enterprise development; iii) 7 percent increase in value of annual marketed output; and iv) 20 percent increase in the number of farmers and fishers with improved access to the services of the DA. To achieve its objectives, the PRDP implements four (4) inter-related components, namely: i) Local and National Planning (I-PLAN); ii) Infrastructure Development (I-BUILD); iii) Enterprise Development (I-REAP) ; and iv) Project Support (I-SUPPORT). This project will directly contribute to SDG 2.3 and 2.4 on increasing agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale food produces and ensuring sustainable food production systems, respectively.
