Project context, objectives and description
MSMEs, numbering almost a million, represent more than 90% of all registered business enterprises in the Philippines and account for more than 60% of national employment. They are considered engines of inclusive growth as they provide income opportunities for Filipino workers and their respective households yet, MSMEs, particularly those in the rural areas, face significant challenges such as technical and financial capacity limitations to sustain and expand operations; and external constraints such as affordable access to electricity and logistical services and vulnerability to climate change impacts. The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) supports the development of MSMEs through the provision of equipment grants under the DTI Shared Services Facilities Program while the Climate Change Commission (CCC) promotes climate smart industries under the National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP) of the Philippines.
The PIN project supported two initiatives:
- Scoped potential interventions to develop bankable projects for micro-enterprises in the agriculture value chain to improve climate resilience, improve productivity, and create jobs and income for rural communities and agriculture workers. The detailed scoping study was concluded as a form of project proposal submitted to the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) to leverage impactful funding on the same purpose, with an expectation to start a scaled-up project in the Province of Oriental Mindoro in 2020.
2. Promoted “green initiatives” for MSMEs by developing “green business indicators” for incorporation in the DTI-SSF Program and encouraged green
entrepreneurship through the introduction and delivery of “green growth modules” for SSF Cooperators, MSMEs, and DTI personnel.
