Kalahi partners trained on community-driven dev't

THE Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-Cidss) of Davao Region conducted a five-day sustainability planning workshop in Bohol province in its desire to guide local government units (LGUs) partners in sustaining the gains of the harmonization of the local planning process (LPP) and community-driven development (CDD).

Part of the workshop was the cross-learning visit to the towns of Buenavista and Carmen, Bohol.

In the visit to Buenavista, its mayor, Ronald Lowell G. Tirol, emphasized the need to coordinate with people's organizations because these groups will help ease the burden of the regular employees. He also raised how Kalahi-Cidss has become a model of transparency in implementing government projects.

"Ang pag maintain kinahanglan gyud naay People's Organization nga modala sa project kay dili na man pud na maapil sa lungsod og dala kay perti mang daghana og trabahuon. Ikaduha, naa gyuy transparency sa ilang kwarta, ilang kita og ilang gasto. Ug naay monthly meetings sa ilang mga members," Tirol said

He added that Kalahi-Cidss ensures the completion of its community projects in reasonable time.

"Ang nakalami sa Kalahi, matawag gyud nga project kay mahuman man gyud. Dili parehas sa una nga kung maghimo og barangay hall, upat ra ka haligi ang nagbarog. Karon kung unsa ang project matuman gyud (The beauty of Kalahi-Cidss is that its community projects are always completed. Unlike before when, for example, a construction of a barangay hall project only ends up having four posts erected. Now whatever is the community project, it is always completed)," he said.

The planning workshop, attended by 45 individuals mostly from the Kalahi-Cidss Makamasang Tugon areas like Tarragona and Manay in Davao Oriental, became the venue in assessing the extent of the integration of participatory, transparency and accountability mechanism of the project at the LGU level.

    Beijing 'poised to take de facto control' of S. China Sea'

    Beijing is poised to take "de facto control" of the South China Sea, the Philippines warned Sunday, but its call for a robust Southeast Asian response at a regional summit was shot down. Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia and Brunei claim parts of the strategic body of water, but Beijing claims nearly all of it, and its increasingly strident territorial assertions have caused concern in the region and beyond.
