RDC-X enjoins the preparation of social protection devít report by LGUís

OZAMIZ CITY, Misamis Occidental, Jan. 19, (PIA) Ė The Regional Development Council of Northern Mindanao (RDC-X) has enjoined the preparation of the Social Protection and Development Report (SPDR) and its integration into the Comprehensive Development and Comprehensive Land Use Plan (CDP/CLUP) with the local government units (LGUís).

The SPDR provides the minimum data requirements of a local situationer which will serve as the basis in coming up with more effective interventions in addressing the various risks and vulnerabilities of LGUís, Engr. Leon M. Dacanay, Jr., Regional Director of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), region 10, said.

Dacanay said the SPDR is an enhanced version of the Social Welfare and Social Welfare Development Situationer, which conforms with the National Social Development Committee Resolution No. 1, series of 2007, entitled ďAdopting A Philippine Definition of Social Protection (SP).Ē

Such resolution states that the SP constitutes policies that seek to reduce poverty and vulnerability to risks and enhance the social status and rights of the marginalized by promoting and protecting livelihood and employment, protecting against hazards and sudden loss of income, and improving peopleís capacity to manage risks.

Risks and vulnerability assessment is undertaken for the sectors on children, family, youth, indigenous peoples (IP), senior citizens, and persons with disabilities (PWDís) to identify their situations whether they are exposed to life-threatening situations or vulnerable to natural/environmental occurrences, economic, and social/governance factors that may affect their quality of life.

Dacanay, who is also the RDC-X Vice Chairperson said the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), as the lead agency in social protection, initiates the enhancing of tools in defining risks and vulnerabilities at the local level through the SPDR which contains the following:

General information on geography, demographic characteristics, poverty profile, sources of income and welfare profile. (PIA-Mis. Occ.)
