As a tool for inclusive growth and pro-people community extension work and outreach service, the Extension Management Office (EMO), through its Center for Inclusivity and Diversity (CID), in partnership with the PUP College of Social Sciences and Development (CSSD), hosted an online lecture-discussion titled: Promoting Inclusive Growth through the Community-Based Monitoring System (CBMS) on March 25, 2022.
The resource speakers of the webinar was the lead developer of the CBMS methodology and the former director the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS), Dr. Celia Reyes.
CBMS has been adopted for implementation across the whole country by virtue of Republic Act No. 11315, otherwise known as the Community-Based Monitoring System (CBMS) Act approved on 17 April 2019. It is an organized technology-based system for collecting, processing, and validating necessary disaggregated data for local planning, program implementation, and impact monitoring while empowering communities to participate in the process.
It entails the collection of data at the local level that will be used to target households in the planning, budgeting, and implementation of government programs aimed at alleviating poverty and promoting economic development. This system combines the methodologies used by all national agencies in data collection activities.
This online educational and advocacy activity took place via Zoom and drew participants from a variety of sectors, public and private organizations, and higher education institutions.
This is the second in a series of PUNDIT (PUP Diversity and Inclusivity Talks) webinars on various topics related to inclusivity and social diversity that PUP-CID is hosting throughout the year. PUNDIT is part of CID’s programmatic approach to fulfilling its core mandate of promoting diversity and nondiscrimination within the University community, which includes partner-beneficiary communities in extension and outreach work.
