TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, February 26 (PIA)—Ateneo de Manila University School of Government (ADMU-SG) which has mentored San Miguel Bohol and other pilot areas in the country in enhancing good local governance, brings to Tagbilaran a forum on state of accountability, called "Strengthening Local Governance Accountability to Sustain Reforms" this Monday, March 2, 2015 at the Jjs Seafoods Village. 

The forum convenes key actors and champions in making accountability work, to discuss the state of accountability in the Philippines, concrete ways to address accountability constraints and challenges work to sustain reforms, said Joy G. Aceron, Government Watch Program Director. 

It may be recalled that in recent years, “there have been various efforts to enhance good local governance to improve the performance of local governments in achieving development outcomes and in deepening democracy,” Aceron stated. 

Local government's efficiency and effectiveness have been improved; mandated mechanisms for transparency and participation have been activated and supported, she pointed out. 

Efforts to continuously improve performance have been undertaken, turning local governments learning organizations capable of sustained growth and development, and in Bohol, San Miguel town stepped into the performance stage.

How San Miguel, and other key pilot areas of a Government-Watch (G-Watch) and Political Democracy and Reforms (PODER) of the Ateneo School of Government, along with the Professional School for Leadership and Public Service in cooperation by its local partners in its G-Watch Localization sites, shares to Boholanos their learning in improving target development performance and enlivening democratic environment for development.

The forum forms part of the state of accountability series as organized by Government Watch (G-watch), a social accountability program that seeks to facilitate the engagement of citizens in monitoring government programs and service delivery. 

At the forum, accountability champions talk about the state of governance accountability in their localities, ways and means to sustain reforms and continue their progress and development and the importance of governance accountability in sustaining reforms and how to strengthen it. 

The forum will also discuss the existing proposed legislation envisioned to strengthen local participatory governance in order to galvanize support for the proposals that the local stakeholders find meritorious.

Some of these include the institutionalization of grassroots participatory budgeting and legislating local people's councils, according to Aceron. (RAC/PIABohol)
