During Project Implementation


The main objectives of the proposed Project are: (i) to support the Government's efforts to improve access to and quality of urban physical infrastructure and services in the Project area covering eight local government units (LGUs) in the Clark Special Economic Zone (CSEZ) area; (ii) and strengthen the planning and administrative capacity and capability of the LGUs concerned. The Project will also support economic development activities, contribute to poverty reduction, and improve environmental conditions in the Project area.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The CSEZ is a major center of economic development in Central Luzon. Currently, there are about 240 industries and commercial establishments operating in the area, employing about 40,000 people. It is projected that the employment in the CSEZ will increase to about 250,000 by 2005. Most of these employees live in the Project area and commute from the surrounding LGUs. About 20 percent of the urban population in the Project area are estimated to be poor. Attracted by the increased job opportunities, the population is increasing in the Project area by about 4 percent annually. However, the basic urban infrastructure in the Project area is inadequate to meet the demand from the increasing pupulation, and the existing service levels need to be upgraded, among others, to meet the basic needs of the poor. The institutional capacity of the participating LGUs also needs strengthening, particularly in the areas of urban planning and management, and urban infrastructure maintenance.
