Batangas City People's Council develops a three-year road map.

news-bcpc.pngAfter its formation, the Batangas City People's Council (BCPC) felt it lacked direction on how it will support civil society groups. USAID CHANGE facilitated a strategic planning workshop for the BCPC on November 16, 2023. The activity was funded by the city government. Around 33 CSO and 6 LGU participants attended, including Councilor Nelson Chavez. During the activity, the BCPC formulated objectives, indicators, targets and milestones that will strengthen its committees, manage and improve the capacity of members, and implement projects that will help communities for the next three years.

So What? A trategic plan will prepare the BCPC to become as effective voice for the people in engaging with the local government.
