DILG field officers from the region received a refresher on the review of GAD Plan and Budget and actual application of gender analysis tools during the conduct of a GAD retooling and deepening session spearheaded by the Department of the Interior and Local Government Region 3 last March 21-22, 2019, at Grace Crown Hotel, Angeles City.
The activity aimed to improve the mastery and skills of the participants in using GAD analysis tools (e.g. HGDG, PIMME, GeRL Tool etc.) as well as enhance their GAD proficiency in aid of providing technical assistance to LGUs in the formulation and review of their GAD Accomplishment Report and GAD Plan and Budget of LGUs.
"We need to have tools to improve our planning and provide responsive programs. We cannot conquer if we are not equipped with the proper tools", said ARD Jay E. Timbreza.
Through the activity, DILG officers were to enhance their proficiency in giving technical assistance to LGUs in the formulation and updating of GAD Code.
