Strengthen LPRAT in LGUs to achieve progress, urges Palace official

by MB Quiñones

Sorsogon City (18 June) -- Presidential Assistant for Bicol Tomasito B. Monzon vowed to support the Local Poverty Reduction Action Team (LPRAT) of the six provinces in the Bicol region to reduce poverty incidence and improve the quality of life of Bicolanos.

Monzon told the participants of a consultation-dialogue held here recently that the Office of the Presidential Assistant for Bicol (OPAB) has been doing rounds in every province holding interfacing with local officials and stakeholders to strengthen the LPRAT and consolidate poverty reduction efforts.

In the same interfacing, Monzon said that the past development and experiences shared in poverty reduction effort are necessary in coming up with a better and stronger LPRAT that will work together in propelling Bicol on top among the provinces in the country.

LPRAT is an institutional arrangement needed by a municipality or province in the realization of its goal of poverty alleviation.

At the same time, Monzon urged Interior and Local Government Regional Director Blandino A. Maceda to work hand and hand with his office as well as with the RKCG in ensuring that LPRAT is established in every municipality in the region.

"DILG should guarantee that LPRAT is convened and functional in every municipality for the attainment of one goal: MAKING BICOL THE BEST," he said.

He also asked RKCG cluster head, particularly the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Department of Labor (DOLE) and the DILG, to convene regularly and discuss measures and strategies to fast track progress and development.

"Member agencies should also have synchronized and focused delivery of basic services," he added.

Aside from Sorsogon, OPAB and RKCG had already conducted the same consultation-dialogue with LPRAT in Masbate last April 14, 2009. (OPAB/PIA Sorsogon) [top]
