X3 : Expertise and Experiences Exchange

(The Philippine and Japanese NGOs on Local Development)

 

or

 

CLOSER TO HOME: Symposium on the Philippine and Japanese NGO Experiences on Local Development

 

 

I.  PROJECT DETAILS

 

Background

 

In early 2005, the Embassy of Japan organized a round table discussion on the Japanese government’s assistance program to the Philippines.  This was part of the initiatives of the team formed by the Japanese government that was assigned to review its country assistance program through interviews and discussions with various stakeholders.  This was attended by various NGOs and other civil society organizations. After the round table discussion, many of the NGOs met on their own several times to continue in promoting reforms in the Japanese assistance programs that will make it more effective in reducing poverty in the country.

 

The following year was the 50th Anniversary of the normalization of PhilippinesJapan relationship, and this was marked by the 2006 Philippines - Japan Friendship Year Celebration. Again, various Philippine and Japanese NGOs met and agreed that it would be important to organize NGO activities during the Friendship Year and to strengthen the links between NGOs of the two countries.  Among these activities was the 1st Philippines-Japan NGO Symposium held in November 2006.

 

These two streams : fostering friendship/networking among Philippine and Japanese NGOs and advocating a more effective and participatory Japanese official development assistance (ODA) program for the country – continue their lively flow in the goals and activities of the network, now known as Philippines-Japan NGO Partnership (PJP).[1]  The PJP, which was formed in early 2006 with the goal of maximizing development resources (financial, human and others) for poverty alleviation, continues for now as an informal network.

 

PJP has continued to work on strengthening the relations of Philippine and Japanese NGOs thru common activities and sharing sessions.  It has also continued its dialogue with the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the Embassy of Japan (EOJ) and others regarding the Japanese ODA to the Philippines.  In July 2008, PJP participated in the 2nd Japan-Philippines NGO Symposium in Tokyo, Japan organized by its partner network, the Japan Philippines NGO Network (JPN) and the Asian Community Center 21 (ACC 21).  It had been agreed that the next Symposium be held on 2010 in the Philippines.

 

 

Rationale

 

The 3rd Philippines-Japan NGO Symposium, dubbed X3: Expertise and Experiences Exchange (The Philippine and Japanese NGOs on Local Development) will be hosted by the Philippine–Japan NGO Partnership (PJP) in Davao City, Philippines on August 21 – 23, 2009, in partnership with the Japan–Philippines NGO Network (JPN).  Other organizations, including the University of the PhilippinesBaguio Cordillera Studies Center, an academic institution, shall also be tapped as a partner for X3.

 

X3 shall focus on discussing and learning more about thematic areas the Philippines and Japan NGOs have been active in and part of for the past years.  These are thematic areas that have direct impact to their beneficiaries, constituents and partners.  X3 can therefore be a venue for starting not only partnerships, but research and policy initiatives, as well.

 

 

Objectives

 

True to the tradition of the past two (2) Philippine-Japan NGO International Symposia in 2006 and in 2008, X3 : Expertise and Experiences Exchange (The Philippine and Japanese NGOs on Social Development) aims to provide venues for Philippine and Japanese NGOs with common concepts and experiences to further improve and strengthen bi-country, cross-sectoral partnerships.  Achieving this will, in turn, pave the way for a more successful promotion of more responsive Japanese development assistance to the Philippines.

 

X3, through the different activities in this 3-day event, shall fulfill the following objectives:

·         To better understand various  development issues and experiences from both Philippine and Japanese perspectives;

·         To look into and draw from successful Philippine-Japanese partnerships in promoting, handling and managing social development issues;

·         To help align the development efforts of the civil society organizations, business groups, government and the donor organizations from both the Philippines and Japan;

·         To showcase Philippine and Japan NGO programs, projects and products.

 

 

2. METHODOLOGY

 

X3 : Expertise and Experiences Exchange (The Philippine and Japanese NGOs on Local Development) is a multi-activity 3-day event that will gather a minimum of 150 participants from the academe, NGOs, government, media, financing institutions and development fields in Japan and the Philippines, as well Japanese and Japanese descendants in the Philippines.  Experts in Philippine – Japan development from other countries and fields shall also be invited.

 

The wide range of activities is designed to encourage maximum participation from the attendees and promote maximum learning, understanding and retention. 

·         Paper presentations and thematic discussions by experts and practitioners shall update the participants on various social development issues that are currently highlighted in both countries’ social development campaign. 

·         Audio-visual and performance presentations by practitioners and artists shall provide better understanding and appreciation of the differences and similarities of different paradigms and experiences. 

·         Expositions and exhibits shall provide venues for participating organizations to showcase their programs and projects, and more venues for direct interactions between participants and participating organizations. 

·         Field and/or project visits shall put the learning and discussions in more concrete and realistic settings for the participants.

 

X3 shall provide special attention on concepts related to local community experiences on thematic areas, such as, but not limited to :

  • ODA governance and effectiveness,
  • disaster risk reduction,
  • historical review of relationship building (ties that bind) & conflict management,
  • local (cultural) challenges of demographic change

X3 (Expertise & Experience Exchanges) :
The 3rd Philippine & Japan NGO International Symposium on Social Development
25 – 27 August 2010
Davao City, Philippines
THE PHILIPPINES-JAPAN NGO PARTNERSHIP (PJP)

In early 2005, various NGOs and other civil society organizations were convened by the Embassy of Japan for a round table discussion on the Japanese government’s assistance program to the Philippines. The team formed by the Japanese government to review its country assistance program was visiting the country at that time for interviews and discussions with various stakeholders. After the round table discussion, many of the NGOs met on their own several times to continue to promote reforms in the Japanese assistance program to make it more effective in reducing poverty in the country.
In 2006, the Philippines - Japan Friendship Year was celebrated to mark the 50th Anniversary of the normalization of relationship between Philippines and Japan. Various Philippine and Japanese NGOs met and agreed that it would be important to organize NGO activities during the Friendship Year and to strengthen the links between NGOs of the two countries.
These two streams – fostering friendship and networking among Philippine and Japanese NGOs and advocating for a more effective and participatory Japanese official development assistance (ODA) program for the country – continue their lively flow in the goals and activities of the Philippines-Japan NGO Partnership (PJP).
The PJP is an informal network of 19 NGOs/NGO networks and several individual advocates. Its membership includes Philippine NGO networks and NGOs - Association of Foundations (AF), Caucus of Development NGO Networks (CODE-NGO), Development Action for Women Network (DAWN), Ibon Foundation, National Confederation of Cooperatives (NATCCO), National Council for Social Development (NCSD), Partnership of Philippine Support Service Agencies (PhilSSA), Peace and Equity Foundation (PEF), Philippine Development Assistance Program (PDAP) and Philippine Partnership for the Development of Human Resources in Rural Areas (PhilDHRRA), PREDA Foundation and Visayan Forum Foundation; Japanese NGOs based or with offices in the Philippines - Children without Borders (Kokkyo naki Kodomotachi), I-CAN Foundation, Konkokyo Peace Activity Center Information Office (KPACIO) Inc. and Maligaya House; and regional networks based in the Philippines – Asia-Japan Partnership Network for Poverty Reduction (AJPN), Asian NGO Coalition for Agrarian Reform and Rural Development (ANGOC) and Asian Partnership for Human Development in Rural Areas (AsiaDHRRA).
The PJP was formed in early 2006 with the goal of maximizing development resources (financial, human and others) for poverty alleviation. In order to do this, PJP members agreed to promote networking between Philippine and Japanese NGOs and joint researches/advocacy, particularly on making Japanese ODA more participatory and effective in addressing poverty and promoting people-centered development.
PJP initially focused on three major activities for the Philippines-Japan Friendship Year, namely (a) research on Japanese ODA to the Philippines, NGO funding mechanisms and Japanese-Philippine NGO partnerships, (b) the 1st Philippines-Japan NGO Symposium and (c) Philippines-Japan NGO Trade Fair.
The group continues for now as an informal network. It is open to other organizations who would like to join as long as they agree with the goals, objectives and operating principles of PJP. The PJP has a Steering Committee (SC) where every member is represented and organizes working groups as necessary to implement plans agreed upon by the SC.
After the Friendship Year in 2006, PJP continued its efforts and has created an e-group among its members, conducted sessions to share best practices, and organized an orientation session with officials of the Embassy of Japan and a workshop on Japanese ODA.
PJP works closely in partnership with the Japan-Philippines NGO Network (JPN), a Tokyo-based network of Japanese NGOs (with operations and partnerships in the Philippines) established almost simultaneously in 2006.
JPN led in organizing the 2nd Japan-Philippines NGO Symposium on July 17-19, 2008 in Tokyo, Japan. At the end of those 3 days, participants from JPN, PJP and others agreed to work on (a) the establishment of the Philippines-Japan Partnership Fund from donations from individuals, businesses and civil society organizations in the two countries, (b) the promotion of civil society participation in the implementation of Japan’s Country Assistance Program for the Philippines, (c) sharing information and resources among Philippine and Japanese NGOs, and (d) the holding of the 3rd Philippines-Japan NGO Symposium in the Philippines in 2010.
X3 is the 3rd Philippines-Japan NGO Symposium. It will be held on August 25 – 27, 2010 in Davao City, Philippines.

第3回日比NGOシンポジウム

「専門知と経験の共有~地域開発における日比NGOの連携~」

 

 

1.    日比NGO連携事業のこれまで

フィリピンと日本の関係は、一時期、フィリピンに日本軍が侵攻し、同国が戦場と化し、数多くの命が奪われるなど不幸な歴史を経たが、現在は、同じ民主主義国家として友好な関係を築いている。両国間では、活発な経済交流が進み、2006年の貿易額は16700億円に達し、また日本政府はフィリピンの経済開発に資するため政府開発援助(ODA)を積極的に進め、これまでの累積援助金額は25千億円に達し、同国への援助国の中では最大規模になっている。さらに近年においては、両国間の人的交流が盛んになり、日本からフィリピンへの観光客は年間40万人近くに達し、一方、2009年末現在、20万人強のフィリピンの人々が就労その他を目的に日本で生活している。

上記のような日比関係であるが、フィリピンでは、今なお、社会開発上の多くの問題が横たわり、この状況に対し、フィリピン国内の市民社会組織(CSO)のみならず、日本のNGOも約90団体がこれら貧困層の人々への支援活動に従事している。日本に存在する国際協力に携わるNGOの中で、フィリピンに関わるNGOの数は最大である。

2005年より、(特活)アジア・コミュニティ・センター21ACC21)による仲介活動を通して、日比両国の一部のNGO関係者間で両国NGO間の対話と協力関係構築への関心が徐々に高まった。翌年、2006年、この関心を目的に移すことを目的に、両国にそれぞれのネットワークとして、「日比NGOネットワーク(JPNJapan-Philippines NGO Network)」、フィリピンでは「比日NGOパートナーシップ (PJPPhilippines-Japan NGO Partnership)」が誕生した。両国のネットワークとACC21は、同年が日比両国間の「国交正常化50周年」の「日比友好年」であることを機に、「第1回日比NGOシンポジウム」を開催した。

2006年にACC21が実施したフィリピンに関わる日本のNGOの概況調査では、約72%の団体は財政規模が5,000万円未満の小規模であり、資金調達の難しさやフィリピンに関わるNGO間の連携の薄さなどが課題として挙がった。日比NGOネットワーク(JPN)は、日比NGO間の情報交換と協働を推進し、両国市民社会の創造的な関係構築に寄与することを目的としており、上記のような課題を「協働」を通じて取り組むべく、学習会やマニラでの日比NGOフェア(活動紹介と物品販売)を実施してきた。

 

2.    これまでの「日比NGOシンポジウム」と「第3回日比NGOシンポジウム」開催の目的

20061124日~25日、フィリピンと日本の市民組織(NGO)グループ-「フィリピン日本NGOパートナーシップ(PJP)」、「日比NGOネットワーク(JPN)」-が協力し、フィリピンのマニラ首都圏タギッグ市において、「ミレニアム開発目標に向けてのフィリピン貧困層のエンパワーメント-日比NGOのパートナーシップ構築-」のテーマの下で、両国NGOの合同シンポジウムを開催した。このシンポジウムには、NGO、政府、大学関係者等約150名が参加した。両国NGO関係者は、フィリピン貧困層のエンパワーメントと「ミレニアム開発目標」(MDGs)の達成に向け協働することを確認した。

「第2回日比NGOシンポジウム」は、2008年7月17日~19日、ミレニアム開発目標に向けてのフィリピン貧困層のエンパワーメント日比NGOのパートナーシップ構築-」というテーマで、東京にて開催した。日比NGO関係者(フィリピンからの招聘23名)はじめ、外務省、国際機関、JICA、企業、学術、マスコミ関係者など延べ200名以上の参加を得た。ここでは、6つの活動分野の分科会(「子どもの教育」、「子どもの保健(母子保健)」、「農業・農村開発」、「少数民族」、「平和構築」、「在日フィリピン人」)に分かれて議論を行い、「日比NGO協働基金」構想について話し合いを行うなど、実践的な情報交換を行い、具体的に連携方法について話し合った。「東京宣言」(別紙参照)を採択し、同シンポジウムの趣旨を引き継ぐべく、「第3回日比NGOシンポジウム」をフィリピンで開催することを決定した。

(第3回日比NGOシンポジウム開催の目的)

「第3回日比NGOシンポジウム」は、「第1回日比NGOシンポジウム(2006年)」および「第2回日比NGOシンポジウム(2008年)」を通じて培われた協力関係をさらに強固なものとし、両国および世界が直面している重要な課題により効果的に対処していくための両国の市民社会セクター(NGO、ロータリークラブ、大学など)、および経済界、行政との協働関係の促進を図り、フィリピンの貧困削減に寄与することを目的とする。そして、シンポジウムのテーマを「専門知と経験の共有~地域開発における日比NGOの連携~」として、両国NGOの経験・技術の共有を促進する。また、開催地をダバオ市とすることにより、数多い日系人が同市で生活することに鑑み、日系人の歴史を学び、これらの人との交流を図る機会を提供することを目指す。
