SDC 2014

Kasali Ka, Sumali Ka! Social Development Celebration 2014 and CODE-NGO’s 18th General Assembly


The Caucus of Development NGO Networks (CODE-NGO) will hold its annual Kasali Ka, Sumali Ka! Social Development Celebration (SDC) and 18th General Assembly on December 3-5, 2014 at the SMX Convention Centre, SM Lanang, Davao City. This year’s SDC will be co-hosted by the Mindanao Coalition of Development NGO Networks (MINCODE), one of the 12 member networks of CODE-NGO.

Themed, From South to North and From Bottom Up: CSOs Shaping Peace and Resilience”, the event highlights the development initiatives of civil society organizations (CSOs) across the Philippines in building peace and disaster-resilient communities. These two issues are timely, now that the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB) has been signed and the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) is being deliberated upon in Congress, and a year after typhoon Yolanda when lessons should have informed and should be informing Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) efforts of various stakeholders. It will also be a good opportunity for CSOs to take stock of the status of their constructive engagement with government, at a time when government reform efforts (e.g. the bottom-up budgeting (BUB) or grassroots participatory budgeting (GPB) process) are being challenged and criticized by a few legislators and CSOs locally, while being acknowledged and supported by other local CSOs and being recognized globally, receiving a Gold Award (3rd prize) from the Open Government Partnership Awards last September 2014.

CSOs lament limited consultations with affected communities and civil society organizations in Yolanda rehabilitation plans


The Caucus of Development NGO Networks (CODE-NGO) formally submitted yesterday a list of recommendations for a more responsive Yolanda rehabilitation and recovery to the Office of the Presidential Assistant on Rehabilitation and Recovery (OPARR) and other government agencies leading the program.  These recommendations resulted from the recently concluded forum entitled “Yolanda, a Year After: Clearing the Road to Rehabilitation and Recovery” held last November 3-4, 2014 at the Ateneo De Manila University in Quezon City. CODE-NGO is the country’s biggest coalition of development-oriented civil society organizations.  

Almost a year after Typhoon Yolanda wreaked havoc in the Philippines, the forum served as a consultation and discussion venue for the lessons learned by local civil society organizations (CSOs) and the public sector after the typhoon.

CODE-NGO to hold dialogues on the Bangsamoro Basic Law


To reinforce the role of civil society organizations (CSOs) in the national pursuit for peace in Mindanao, the Caucus of Development NGO Networks (CODE-NGO) will conduct a series of information sessions on the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) in various regional areas in the country.

With the theme “Peace within Reach”, the dialogues aim to promote an understanding of the struggle for self-determination of our brothers and sisters in Mindanao. Fostering consensus and support for BBL among the attending CSOs is also one of the main goals of the workshop sessions.

The first leg in the series of the information sessions will be conducted this November 7, 2014 at the Institute of Social Order, Ateneo de Manila University. The said event will cover primary issues and concerns with regards to BBL. These include a historical review of the Moro struggle in the Philippines, a presentation on the highlights of the Bangsamoro peace processes, and a discussion on the important features of the proposed BBL.
