|Overview :A.Project Description and Objectives|
Efficient, resilient, and well-planned road networks ensure that no one is left behind in the drive for inclusive growth. This is why roads are considered as an important foundation for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and a prerequisite for bringing communities together.
At present, only 24.6% of all provincial roads in the Philippines are of acceptable quality. Of the 12,726km of provincial core roads, 57.2% are unpaved and in need of upgrading, while 20.2% are in poor condition and in need of rehabilitation. The situation is similarly dire for the 19,098 km of non-core roads, with 67% needing upgrading and 7% in need of rehabilitation.
To address this situation, the Department for the Interior and Local Government (DILG) has launched theConditional Matching Grant to Provinces (CMGP)initiative to improve the quality of the local road network across the country, by providing both financial investment for capital outlay, as well as strengthening the governance processes so that provincial governments are themselves able to effectively plan, design, implement and maintain their road networks. The Program addresses the underinvestment in local roads, and improvement of national-local roads connectivity to increase economic activity, and improve public access to facilities and services in the provinces.
For FY 2017 General Appropriations Act (GAA), the Program has a total budget of P18.03 Billion under the Local Government Support Fund (LGSF). Aside from this, the DILG budget also has an allocation of P564.256 Million for FY 2017 intended to support the governance reform, quality assurance, and monitoring of road projects of the PLGUs.
The Program, however, is not only a road engineering intervention, it is also a governance reform program in local roads management (LRM) and public financial management (PFM). Thus, in partnership with DILG, UNDP has launched the project“Paving the Roads to SDGs through Good Governance (Roads2SDGs)”which aims to provide support to the governance reform and quality assurance components of CMGP through the ‘Roads to SDGs’ framework. This framework will anchor the prioritization, planning, design, implementation, and maintenance of infrastructure projects to the achievement of the SDGs, incorporating the elements of partnership building, climate change and disaster risk reduction, gender mainstreaming, and citizen participation for transparency and accountability.
In line with the quality assurance component of the CMGP/RoadstoSDGs road projects, one of the deliverables being facilitated by UNDP is the conduct of Quality Assurance Inspection to CMGP/Roads to SDGs Projects in partnership with PASUC.
The QA inspection activities of the Regional Quality Assurance Engineers from PASUC have been completed. Therefore, UNDP deems necessary the completion of Learning Session cum Assessment among UNDP, DILG and PASUC to reflect and document lessons learned and propose for ways forward to sustain the gains of the initial engagement and work towards enhanced future engagements.
The general objective of the Learning Session cum Assessment is to draw out lessons from the partnership with PASUC on the DILG-CMGP roads projects, specifically on the experiences related to the QA inspections conducted by the PASUC engineers on road projects under DILG-CMGP. This will be achieved through a constructive and participatory process which will involve the key players from the three institutions as well as field implementers at the level of the regions and provinces.
