This is a reprint of the first two chapters of the Philippine Plan for Gender-Responsive Development (1995-2025). It outlines the macro context and the basic socio-cultural, economic, political and legal framework. In macro context, the PPGD rests on a vision of development that is equitable, sustainable, free from violence, respectful of human rights, supportive of self-determination and the actualization of human potentials and participatory and empowering. In basic framework, a plan is only as good as its implementation and its implementation, on the other hand, is only as good as the will, the resources, and the people who choose to undertake the plan in its concrete form.
