The Philippines has emerged as a global leader in pioneering innovative solutions to addressing some of the world’s greatest development challenges.

The U.S. Embassy Manila’s U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and two United States-based organizations, the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the National Cancer Institute (NCI), recently announced new research projects that advance the scientific and technical capacity of both the United States and partner countries in critical areas of development.

A total of $8.5 million (370 million pesos) was awarded to 46 projects in 23 countries, with the Philippines taking home a staggering seven grants to fund work that combats tuberculosis, preserves biodiversity and boosts environmental resilience.

The grants are funded through a grant-making facility, the Partnerships for Enhanced Engagement in Research (PEER) program, a joint initiative designed to foster collaborative global research. Through the competitively awarded program, USAID directly supports researchers in developing countries who work with U.S. government-funded researchers.
