380 LGU reps in CL attend seminar-workshop series on the Localization of Magna Carta of Women
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga-Around 380 personnel coming from 114 local government units (LGUs) in Central Luzon recently took part in a seminar-workshop series on the Localization of the provisions of Republic Act 9710 otherwise known as the Magna Carta of Women.
Spearheaded by Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) in partnership with the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW), the activity was meant to capacitate provinces, cities and municipalities in coming up with a gender-responsive plan and budget for 2015.
“Central Luzon is one of the first to conduct this kind of activity. In the past three years, LGUs are receiving audit observations on the utilization of Gender and Development (GAD) Funds. Through this, our resource persons gave the most palatable and most acceptable inputs and information which would be very useful to be able to craft the LGU GAD Plan and Budget,” DILG Regional Director Florida Dijan said.
“DILG’s goal is to make all LGUs sustainable development-oriented which can only be achieved if they all practice self-reliance,” Dijan added. (Carlo Lorenzo J. Datu)
