      Prioritizing Gender and Climate Change in Municipal Budgets in the
      Posted on March 1, 2013
      In February, PAI’s Vice President of Research Roger-Mark DeSouza met with
      Partners in the Philippines to identify new opportunities for potential
      collaboration around population, health and the environment. PAI works
      with The Philippine Partnership for the Development of Human Resources in
      Rural Areas (PhilDHRRA). PhilDHRRA is a network of 67 NGOS working in
      rural communities all over the Philippines. PAI provides small grants to
      three PhilDHRRA members that are focused on budget accountability for
      gender and climate change in two municipalities To help advance this
      work, PAI spent the day with partners reviewing local good governance
      initiatives and brainstorming about the challenges of accountability
      While in the Philippines, De Souza also screened PAI documentary
      Weathering Change and gave a keynote address at a meeting at the
      University of the Philippines in Tacloban.
      The meeting was on the heels of three important policy developments in
      the Philippines which are linked to family planning. The first is the
      passage into law of the reproductive health bill which advocates have
      been working towards for 14 years.The second is the release of the
      national State of the Population report whose theme is Population, Health
      and Environment and finally, the enactment of the first population health
      and environment ordinance by a local government unit in a municipality in
      the province of Leyte.
