The Philippines faces significant governance challenges, particularly in strengthening rule of law. Strengthening Philippine democracy and governance would require greater transparency and accountability, increased political competition and an effective judicial system.
USAID engages a diverse set of stakeholders for a broad range of democracy and governance programs in the Philippines. The Agency supports electoral reform; judicial reform and the rule of law; anticorruption; local governance; conflict resolution; human rights and anti-trafficking.
