Today we are launching a collection of inspiring stories of ordinary men and women who are advancing tourism throughout the Philippines. They come from places as far north as Ilocos Norte and as far south as Zamboanga. Tourism Stories is an invitation to everyone to celebrate the triumph of the Filipino spirit amid adversity. This book features stories of vulnerable men and women who have overcome hardships, forging dignified livelihoods through tourism, and helping to advance the sector throughout the Philippines.
USAID is pleased to support the Government of the Philippines, through a grant to the UPEcon Foundation, to implement the Energy Policy Development Program. The program works to strengthen the country’s energy policies that will promote more affordable, reliable and environmentally-sound energy development. These are key elements to sustain the country’s growth trajectory.

We are pleased to support the Department of Energy in the development of the Gender Toolkit for the Energy Sector. This is an important activity that advances our Agency’s core development objectives of gender equality and female empowerment. These twin goals are fundamental for the realization of human rights and key to effective and sustainable development outcomes.
