Rural accessibility planning

IRAP III - Nationwide application of integrated rural accessibility planing in the Philippines

The partnership between the Department of Local Government (DILG) and the ILO in IRAP III is expected to contribute to the socio-economic development and poverty reduction efforts of the country through sustained and institutionalized application of the IRAP procedure in local, regional and national planning and project development.

The Integrated Rural Accessibility Planning (IRAP) procedure was primarily developed to address the issue of access of rural household to basic goods, services and to facilitate local level planning and decision-making on interventions relating to delivery of basic goods and services.
