Implementation of the Strategic Communications Plan of the Delegation of the EU to the Philippines

Consultant for Stakeholder Mapping and Analysis

Position

The EU is one of the largest contributors to the Philippines in terms of development cooperation funds; jointly with the EU Member States, it is also the largest grant donor. In terms of economic relations, the EU as a whole is the fourth largest trading partner for the Philippines and one of the largest sources of direct investment in the country. During the pandemic, the EU Member States donated about 30 million vaccines and, in addition, the EU was a major contributor of COVAX, which supplied vaccines for 20% of the population. Finally, the EU is one of the most important donors providing humanitarian assistance to the Philippines in cases of serious natural disasters. However, the EU has a much smaller public presence in the perception of the Philippine public than what its real involvement should warrant. This often... translates in a limited capacity to influence decision-making in areas strategic for the EU’s interests.

The EU Delegation to the Philippines embarked in 2023 in the design of that Strategic Communications Plan with the support of professional services. The Overall Communication Objective that should be achieved through the Plan –whose design is being finalized- is to re-assert the positioning of the EU as a strategic and reliable partner for the Philippines, a partner of reference. The present Contract will provide services and expertise that will contribute to the implementation of that Plan, monitor its results, and do any necessary adaptations. Stakeholder engagement will be governed by the branding of the EU in the Philippines based on the following elements (which are further defined in the Strategic Communications Plan, see related, and could be further refined during the consultancy):
• The EU is a reliable, steadfast and strategic partner that operates on a value-based platform that is largely shared with the Philippines, and has a strong commitment to addressing many of the key challenges the Philippines faces, including climate change, green recovery, rule of law, peace and security.
• As an ally in a complex and multi-polar global order, the EU offers respectful and qualitative partnerships of equals, which connect Europe and the Philippines, creating links not dependencies.
• The EU engages with the different stakeholders involved in the governance of a plural society: national and local government, businesses and civil society. The EU also sees the empowerment of women and youth as key for the advancement of society, and promotes their participation through its programmes/actions.
