PN 2017-11: Assessment of the Targeting and Financing Aspects of the RSBSA-AIP

The Registry System for the Basic Sectors in Agriculture (RSBSA) is a registry of farmers, fisherfolk, and farm laborers that serves as a targeting mechanism for the identification of beneficiaries for different agriculture-related programs and services of the government. The Philippine Crop Insurance Corporation (PCIC) is among the first users of the RSBSA list for the implementation of its special program, the RSBSA Agricultural Insurance Program (AIP). This Policy Note examines the targeting and financing aspects of the RSBSA-AIP and uncovers leakage problem due to the lax eligibility requirements. It also finds that the PCIC has excluded a significant proportion of eligible agricultural producers from the said program simply because they are not found in the RSBSA list. The study calls for the crafting of a more specific set of guidelines on the use of the RSBSA list for subsidy targeting. It also urges the PCIC to refine its targeting rule for the agricultural producers given the agency's limited budget.
