As both a global research institute and a leading international development organization, RTI combines our project implementation and technical expertise with those of our partners to co-create smart, shared solutions for a more prosperous, equitable, and resilient world. 

For over 35 years, we have collaborated with clients and partners in the Philippines to advance sustainable, multi-sectoral solutions for the most difficult development challenges. In all that we do, we strive for transformative change built on equity and inclusion. 

Our experience and recent project implementation include:

Education in the Philippines

  • Through the ABC+: Advancing Basic Education project, we work with government and private sector partners to improve learning outcomes for children in the early grades.
  • Led development of the Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA), a tool for measuring reading performance in the early grades. EGRAs have been conducted in at least 75 countries, including the Philippines, and 120 languages; many of these can be found on USAID’s Early Grade Reading Barometer
  • Early champion of using data for decision making in education. See our resources related to the Philippines. 

Energy in the Philippines

  • Through the USAID Energy Secure Philippines Project, we work in partnership with local governments, utilities, and the private sector to enhance energy security through transparent, market-driven, and resilient energy sector. The project’s goal is to mobilize at least $750 million of private investments into the energy sector and facilitate an additional capacity of at least 500 megawatts.
  • Developed low emission alternatives and increased economic resilience and the resiliency of the power sector.
