New Zealand supports the Philippines to grow its agriculture sector, develop a more highly skilled and educated workforce, and build resilience to disasters.

Our development investments in the Philippines focus on areas that the Philippines has prioritised and where New Zealand’s expertise is most valued, such as agriculture, knowledge and skills, and disaster risk management.

Total aid to the Philippines comprises country-specific activities, as well as scholarships, regional initiatives, Partnerships Fund activities, and when requested, humanitarian response.
