NAP Development Process
The Philippine Government has not committed to developing a business and human rights NAP.
The Commission of Human Rights of the Philippines has been encouraging the development of a NAP since 2013, aside from other efforts to encourage enhanced respect for human rights by business.
In November 2016, the Presidential Human Rights Committee held a government consultation on a National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights).
In March 2017, the undersecretary for the Presidential Human Rights Committee announced that the Executive Branch of the Philippine Government will embark on developing the Third National Human Rights Action Plan for 2018-2022. It is not known yet whether this plan will address business and human rights or if a separate NAP could be developed.
