As a special project focusing on agri-fishery sector, the Philippine Rural Development Project (PRDP) ensures its beneficiaries are well-capacitated in the management of its interventions particularly the enterprise subprojects and its day-to-day operations.

The Global Environment Facility (GEF) of the PRDP has various sites nationwide where fisherfolk communities are provided with assistance which will not only help in their livelihood but also in the protection of their marine resources.

“Dati po dumaraan ako dito, rough road pa nga ito. Siguro kung papuntang bayan at dito dadaan sa lugar na ito, aabutin siguro mga dalawang oras. Pero ngayon po na concrete na ang kalsada, bale mga isang oras na lang ang byahe (I used to pass here when it is still a rough road. Through this route, the travel time going to the capital is about two hours. Now that the road is concreted, it is just one hour of travel).”
