PIA Press Release

Tabuk holds public consultation on CHARM 2

by Peter Balocnit

Tabuk, Kalinga (20 June) -- To ensure participatory planning and implementation of projects, public consultations in the barangays covered by the Cordillera Highland Agricultural Resource Management (CHARM) 2 are on-going.

According to Provincial Planning and Development Coordinator Norma Damian, the series of barangay forums are aimed to clear issues and look for solutions on problems that may affect the implementation of CHARM projects. "Consulting the beneficiaries on any development project to be introduced in the community is very basic and has to be done," she said.

As the first step in planning, Damian said public consultation develops thrust, confidence and faith of the people towards the intent of any project. "With barangay officials and other influential groups representing the covered village, the forum facilitated the start of the partnership between the project donor and recipients," she explained.

Already reached during the weeklong municipal consultations were Dacalan, Gaang, Anggacan and Anggacan Sur in Tanudan; Ab-abaan, Buwaya, Tawang and Poswoy in Balbalan; Bagtayan, Galdang, Colayo, and Balatoc in Pasil; Tanglag, Mabongtot, Upper Uma and Mabilong in Lubuagan; Belong, Manubal, Tulgao, Basao and East Butbut in Tinglayan.

Earlier, CHARM 2 Project Manager Cameron Odsey assured local officials that the project intends to hear and gather the pulse of target barangays in the identification of activities, based on the minimum basic needs survey conducted in their areas.

Allaying some fears of possible imposition, Odsey clarified there will be close and transparent working partnership between LGUs and CHARM 2, following the program structure prepared by both. (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
