Introduction


  1. This initial report on the implementation of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) was prepared in accordance with the general guidelines adopted by the former Commission on Human Rights, now the Human Rights Council, regarding the submission of initial implementation reports. In observance of the previous three-phase reporting cycle instituted by the Economic and Social Council according to which States Parties were required to report, at three-year intervals, on different clusters of rights, the Philippines has submitted the following ICESCR implementation reports:




  1. HRI/CORE/1/Add.37 (2 Feb. 1994);

  2. Initial (arts. 6-9): E/1978/8/Add.4 (28 Dec. 1977);

  3. 2nd (arts. 6-9): E/1984/7/Add.4 (1 Feb. 1984);

  4. Initial (arts. 13-15): E/1988/5/Add.2 (21 June 1988);

  5. Additional (arts. 13-15): E/1989/5/Add.7 (28 Feb. 1992);

  6. Initial (arts. 10-12): E/1986/3/Add.17 (15 Sept. 1994).




  1. This report consists of two parts. The first part provides information on the current situation in the Philippines. The second part provides specific information relating to the implementation of the provisions of the Covenant.




  1. This report gives background information on laws, policies, programmes and recent developments pertinent to the rights enumerated in the Covenant, the difficulties and problems arising from their implementation, and the prospects for the future.
