Kalinga LCEs vow to sustain participative governance
by Peter A. Balocnit / PIA

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – Local chief executives of the province committed to sustain the good practice on participative governance which gives their constituents the power to decide on their priorities and implement projects within their capacity.

The commitment was contained in the memorandum of agreement signed between the Department of Social Welfare and Development-Cordillera and the LCEs of the provincial government, city, and the six municipalities.

The parties have agreed to deliver packages of services to address poverty, empower citizens, and promote inclusive growth.

The partnership is carried through packages like the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps), Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS), Sustainable Livelihood Program, Social Pension Program, Supplementary Feeding Program, and Disaster Risk and Management Program.

The mayors said there are gains in involving the community in the development process, saying they are not only becoming participants in barangay assemblies but there are also individuals or groups proposing projects and helping in their implementation.

Tinglayan Mayor Sacrament Gumilab said communities are now involved in local planning and in project implementation, and are empowered to decide for themselves and in identifying their priorities.

“My constituents participate in barangay assemblies and claim common ownership of projects implemented in their communities. They can now question projects and they can see where these projects go,” Gumilab said.

Tinglayan and Pasil are covered by the Kalahi-CIDSS where the beneficiaries are the main actors in planning and implementation.

DSWD-Cordillera conducted on Nov. 5 a simultaneous convergence caravan in the provinces to advocate DSWD programs and services, report accomplishments, and dialogue with LGUs and other stakeholders.

Part of the caravan was to seek support of officials on House Bill 4407 that seeks to institutionalize the community-driven development approach as a national strategy for inclusive growth and social protection, which was introduced in Congress by Mountain Province Rep. Maximo Dalog.
