The Linking Innovation Partners towards Accelerated Development in the Philippines (LIPAD PH) Program primarily aims to facilitate smart growth and development in cities across the Philippines by formulating a roadmap that will set forth the local development agenda of cities anchored on established Smart City indicators and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The program addresses the pain points faced by local governments, empowering them with support, fostering innovation, and promoting better data practices. Through this program, the DAP aims to enable innovators to create robust innovation ecosystems, assist local governments in solving societal problems, and establish itself as a Center of Excellence on Innovation.

Spearheaded by the DAP's Center for Strategic Futures, the program aims to create a conducive environment for innovation, and build an innovative culture in the Philippines.
