To prepare the civil society organizations for the call for accreditation, the RESOURCEGov Project supported the DILG-and-LGU initiated CSO Conference on August 6, 2019 at the Liga Hall, New Bataan, Compostela Valley. The activity, attended by 28 participants (Male 10, Female 18), aims for the CSOs to understand their roles and get ready for the CSO accreditation.
MLGOO Ms. Jessica Beau Molo oriented the CSOs on the DILG’s memorandum circular that states the time frame of the CSO accreditation and the four mandated local special bodies, while MPDC Ms. Lucresia Polinar facilitated the workshop on the needs and challenges of CSOs in actively participating with the local government. CSO representatives articulated their need capacity building and venues to showcase and promote their organizational advocacies. A CSO Assembly will be held in September 2019 for the selection of representatives to the local special bodies
