U.S. Embassy Manila’s United States Agency for International Development (USAID) today launched the 2nd Grant Cycle of the Philippine-American (Phil-Am) Fund at the InterContinental Hotel in Makati City.

Representatives of Luzon-based civil society organizations, corporations, business chambers, academic and professional associations attended the event. Similar conferences were also held in Davao City and Iloilo City earlier to reach out to Mindanao and Visayas institutions.

USAID’s Phil-Am Fund is a five-year, Php960 million ($24 million) grant facility that provides opportunities for local civil society organizations (CSOs) in the Philippines to innovate and develop new solutions for many of the country's development challenges. The project is implemented by the Gerry Roxas Foundation with SyCip Gorres and Velayo Co. as its management advisory partner.

Launched in September 2013, the grant facility has awarded 12 grants to date. The grantees provide local solutions to address a range of issues in economic growth, biodiversity protection, combating human trafficking, strengthening basic education and fostering good governance.

Thank you to the UNWTO and the Department of Tourism (DOT) for inviting me to this conference to talk about climate change response from an international perspective, specifically how we can build sustainable tourist destinations that are resilient to environmental threats and climate change impacts. I commend the organizers for engaging development partners, public and private sectors to make economic growth more broad-based and inclusive in the Philippines. Allow me to share USAID’s perspective as a development partner that recognizes the need for protecting the country’s environmental and natural resources in order to promote an agenda of economic growth.
