Tuba officials seek assistance for completion of CBMS

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet, – – Recognizing the relevance of the data generated utilizing the system in evaluating impact of policies, plans, program and projects carried out at the local level, officials of Tuba municipality seek technical and financial assistance from the provincial government for the completion of the second round of the conduct of Community-Based Monitoring System (CBMS).

Tuba officials authorized Mayor Florencio Bentrez to forge a Memorandum of Agreement with the provincial government for the completion of another round of the conduct of CBMS.

The CBMS is a tool designed to generate information and data disaggregated down to the household level.

As can be recalled, the provincial government in partnership with the 13 municipalities undertook the first provincewide CBMS census in 2009 of which the results are part of the national repository.

The results then were used primarily in monitoring the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals and in analyzing the poverty situation in the province.

The data generated was also used as input in the preparation of the Comprehensive Development Plans of the municipalities.

Tuba LGU together with other municipalities such as Kabayan and Kapangan took the initiative to conduct the second round of the CBMS census in their respective areas, and are requesting for technical and financial assistance to implement the remaining CBMS modules as designed.

The results will be used in updating relevant data for policy makers./JDP/SCA-PIA-CAR, Benguet
