Tabuk to reduce poverty rate by 3 percent through CBMS
by Larry T. Lopez / PIA

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – Development planners here aim to uplift the people’s standard of living this year by reducing poverty rate by at least three percent, using the data gathered in the recent Community-Based Monitoring System (CBMS).

Eisenhower Bucalen of the City Planning and Development Office said the CBMS is an established poverty assessment tool that guides policy makers and program implementers in drafting impact programs.

To do this, information from the grassroots is needed to reflect their actual needs.

In the preparation of the City Development Plan, the CPDO regularly holds barangay visits to gather information directly from the people in line with the bottom-up planning.

Bucalen said barangays in Tabuk were already oriented of the CBMS last year and will integrate the system in their program planning starting this year.

Barangay plans are used as input to the city development plan.

Economic upliftment involves meeting the basic needs of the public including health, nutrition, housing, water, sanitation, education, income, and livelihood and ensuring peace and order.

The CBMS is said to be a helpful tool in alleviating poverty because through it, the needs or problems of the grassroots are identified from which appropriate responses, planning and design of development programs and policy recommendations are crafted.

The information gathered through the CBMS helps officials assess and decide which projects should be prioritized and who should directly benefit.

The data gathered through the CBMS could also be used in seeking assistance from funding agencies.
