The Philippine Rural Development Project (PRDP) is a World Bank assisted (through Loan No. 8421)   Project implemented by the Department of Agriculture (DA) nationwide. It is a national government platform for a modern and climate-smart agriculture that seeks to strengthen partnership with the Provincial Local Government Units (PLGUs) and agri-fishery stakeholders in realizing the goals of improved food security and increased incomes, climate resiliency and enhanced policy environment and governance as expressed in the Philippine Development Plan (PDP) 2011-2016.

The Project is supportive of the national development goals of inclusive growth, job creation and poverty reduction. Moreover, it is aligned with the goals and priorities set out in the PDP 2011-2016 for a competitive and sustainable agriculture and fisheries sector and provides a Project-level support for the Agriculture and Fisheries Modernization Act of 1997 (Republic Act 8435), local development and full service delivery from “farm to table”.

One of the covenants of the DA in implementing the PRDP is to submit to the World Bank (WB) the Mid-term Evaluation Report by September 2017.  It shall be undertaken to objectively assess and understand the extent by which outcomes anticipated from implementing the Project are taking place or likely to be achieved given the status of implementation as of the mid of the Project-life.  The findings to be derived from the study shall be relevant for the DA and partner local government units to determine appropriate adjustments and strategies that need to be put in place in the Project operation in order to ensure that the outcomes anticipated from each Project Component and the overall Project Development Objectives would be successfully achieved at end of the Project.
