Integrating Disaster Plans in the Local Government Unit (LGU) Budget

As part of CODE-NGO’s goal to facilitate continuous learning exchange among civil society organizations and their partners, regular communities of practice (CoP) are being conducted at https://www.facebook.com/caucusofdevelopmentngonetworks.

On June 18, 2014, a real-time online discussion titled, “Integrating Disaster Plans in the Local Government Unit (LGU) Budget”, was held. Mr. Benedict Balderrama, National Coordinator of the Partnership of Philippine Support Service Agencies (PHILSSA), served as the resource person to answer questions such as:

  1. What priority DRRM assessments must CSOs do in order to be able to generate basic but meaningful/important proposals to its LGU?; and
  2. What are the fastest and most strategic ways (tips) for CSOs to engage the LGU for the integration of DRRM plan in the AIP?

Official Statement from CODE-NGO

We are flattered that Cong. Ridon thinks that CODE-NGO, with its 12 national and regional CSO networks and 2,000 civil society organizations (CSOs) nationwide can “monopolize” the GPB which will now be implemented in all our 1,600 municipalities and cities. In support of this allegation, Cong. Ridon said that 300 CSOs belonging to CODE-NGO have a monopoly on seats in the Local Poverty Reduction Action Teams (LPRATs) in 1,233 cities and municipalities where GPB is being implemented this year. We do not know the basis of Ridon for this figure, but even assuming that it is true, how can 300 CSOs monopolize the GPB in 1,200 localities? We would like to inform Cong. Ridon that there are at least 3 and as many as 10 or more CSOs in each of the 1,200 LPRATs, so there would be at least 3,600 CSOs in these LPRATs. And he claims that 300 CSOs is a monopoly?
