SDGs – Philippines

Policy Mainstreaming

On the local level, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals is integrated in the Philippine Development Plan (PDP) and AmBisyon Natin 2040.


The PDP is the implementation mechanism of the SDGs in the Philippines, serving as a strategic development roadmap of every administrative term. The 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda serves as a basis for the Philippines’ medium term national development strategy.


AmBisyon 2040, on the other hand, represents the collective long-term vision and aspirations of the Filipino people for themselves and for the country. It describes the kind of life that people want to live, and how they want the country to be by 2040.


Executive Order No. 27, s. 2017 “Directing all government agencies and instrumentalities, including local government units to implement the Philippine Development Plan and Public Investment Program for the Period of 2017-2022” prescribes the following as the basis for the crafting of the PDP 2017-2022:


  • The Philippine’s Long-Term Vision entitled AmBisyon Natin 2040;
  • The President’s 0+10 Point Socioeconomic Agenda; and
  • UN Resolution No. 70/1 or the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development[1]
