The Philippines: a Case Study in Local Planning for Children
Wilfredo G. Nuqui
The 1990 World Summit for Children set in motion the development of what were called â€˜National Programmes of Actionâ€™ in a number of countries. In the Philippines the birth of the overall government plan has been accompanied by that of a number of supporting schemes at the provincial level. This paper examines the preparation and content of these local initiatives. It provides, in so doing, a clear picture of the Philippine experience of â€˜decentralisationâ€™ - the process whereby emphasis is transferred from large-scale capital development projects to more sustainable, community-based services for children.
