The parent project of this Additional Financing is the Philippine Rural Development Project (P132317). The parent project became effective December 3, 2014 and was implemented by the Department of Agriculture over a six-year period (IBRD funding of US501.25 million). The parent project was national in scope, covering all 81 provinces in the Philippines and was designed to build upon the earlier World Bank support through two consecutive Mindanao Rural Development Projects.
According to the World Bank website, this Additional Financing includes restructuring on the following components:
(i) the AF corrects the wording of the Project Development Objective to align it with the wording in the original loan agreement by dropping ‘by supporting smallholders and fisher folk to increase their marketable surpluses, and their access to markets’ from the original PDO wording in the Project Appraisal Document ;
(ii) the AF includes some revisions of the Results Framework indicators which aim to propose better measurable indicators to capture the substantial institutional reforms under the project, reflect the strong demand for farm-to-market roads vis-a-vis other rural infrastructures, and incorporate lessons from the existing project; and (iii) the AF will also include revisions to component cost, disbursement estimates and other adjustments.
