Common Country Assessment (CCA) - Philippines
The Common Country Assessment (CCA) is an in-depth analysis of the development problems in the Philippines, undertaken through a participatory process of consultations among United Nations agencies, its development partners both in the government and civil society, and with other donor agencies in the country. It builds upon the programme of reform launched by the UN Secretary-General in 1997, preparing the UN for the challenges of the 21st century and emphasizing its mandate in developing standards and goals arising from UN conventions and global conferences. In particular, the CCA was driven by the principles and goals of the Millennium Declaration, especially the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). It also builds on the development objectives of the Government of the Philippines, articulated in its Medium Term Development Plan as well as commitments made in the context of international conventions, conferences and protocols.
