Natural Resources Management (NRM)

Since 1998, PRIMEX has provided technical assistance to government executing agencies in the planning and implementation of multiyear, multi-million dollar natural resource management projects financed by ADB, the then Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) (now JICA), and USAID in the Philippines and the region.

Social Sectors: Health and Education

PRIMEX provides strategic advice and support to government agencies in the delivery of better health and education to target beneficiaries through improving access to, and quality of, facilities and services; designing and establishing management systems; and capacity development among others.

Infrastructure and Urban Development

This is an exciting growth area for PRIMEX in the next decade as the multilateral and bilateral development agencies, as well as developing country governments in the AsiaPacific region, commit to pouring huge amounts of funds in infrastructure development.

Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction Management

PRIMEX has expanded its environmental sphere of expertise to include climate change. It has worked with multilateral organizations and government agencies in the conduct of environmental assessment and in the planning and implementation of environmental management, biodiversity conservation measures, conduct of vulnerability assessment studies, and climate change adaptation strategies, among others.
