63 Cordillera towns 2 cities have child-friendly practices
by Nerizza Faye G. Villanueva

Sixty-three towns and two cities in the Cordillera have been identified as eligible to receive the Seal of Child-Friendly Local Governance (SCFGL) for 2016 on recommendation of the Department of the Interior and Local Government and the Council for the Welfare of Children (CWC).

The recommendation is based on the Child-Friendly Local Governance Audit conducted on the second quarter of 2016.

For a city or municipality to be conferred with the SCFLG, the LGU needs to undergo an assessment process which includes table validation and field assessment conducted by various bodies, said Department of Social Welfare and Development-CAR OIC Director Janet P. Armas.

LGUs vying for the recognition are required to do a self-assessment focusing on the provision of programs and services to children, advocacy and observance of children’s rights and the integration of these to their local policies. LGUs that pose a score of at least 75 percent undergo a verification process done by the members of the Regional Inter-Agency Monitoring Task Force (RIMTF) composed of representatives from the Department of Education, Department of Health, and DSWD.

The result of the assessment is then provided to the Regional Secretariat of the Council for the Welfare of Children (RSCWC) under the DSWD. The RSCWC transmits this to the CWC for further assessment.

For 2016, there are 10 municipalities and Baguio City have been conferred the Seal of Child-Friendly Local Governance for 2016. There are 23 towns in Abra, five in Apayao, seven towns and Tabuk City in Kalinga, 10 from Ifugao and eight from Mountain Province that also received the seal.

The municipality of Sablan in Benguet under the 4th to 6th Class Municipality Category and Baguio City for Highly Urbanized City Category were able to reach the minimum 85 percent score and land in the top four of the list in the region, qualifying them to be assessed for the Presidential Award for Child-Friendly Municipalities and Cities. Also included in the top list are Tabuk City, Kalinga for the Component City Category and the municipality of Rizal (Liwan), Kalinga under the 1st to 3rd Class Municipality Category. The aforementioned municipalities are also considered as the regional winners for the said categories.

LGUs that are conferred with the Presidential Award will be able to receive a project worth P500,000.
