Barangay, SK candidates reminded to conduct eco-friendly campaign

As the campaign period is about to commence on May 4, a zero waste advocacy group reminded Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan poll candidates to campaign in a way that will not aggravate community health and environmental problems.

"We renew our appeal to all contenders to be respectful of their constituents' right to a healthy environment. Their keen desire to get the voters' nod should not worsen the waste and pollution woes of the communities, especially in heavily populated barangays, that they are hoping to serve," said Daniel Alejandre, Zero Waste Campaigner, EcoWaste Coalition.

"While it is tempting to spend to the max for leaflets, posters, banners and other campaign paraphernalia to promote their visibility, candidates should adhere to the P5 expense limit per registered voter in their barangay and avoid going beyond what is allowed and what is necessary to get themselves known to the electorate," he said.

"Campaign materials consume lots of resources to get produced and disseminated. Paper leaflets, for instance, are made from wood pulp from trees. Water, bleaching chemicals, dyes and inks, and, not to forget, fossil fuels, are used to make them. While it takes a lengthy and resource-intensive process to produce them, campaign materials are often disposed of as garbage, dumped or burned," he said.

To conserve the use of resources and minimize the generation of garbage, the EcoWaste Coalition urged candidates to refrain from distributing too much leaflets and sample ballots, and from putting up too much banners and posters.

To lessen the use and wastage of materials, the EcoWaste Coalition encouraged candidates to explore more personal and interactive approaches to reaching out to their constituents such as through house-to-house visitations and neighborhood meetings where they can adequately introduce themselves and their platforms, including their plans to address community health and environmental concerns.

The group further suggested the optimal and ethical use of the social media by the candidates to inform voters of their political intentions as another way of minimizing the use of resource-consuming traditional campaign materials.

The group also emphasized the importance for candidates and their supporters to spare all trees of campaign materials that can hurt and damage them.

"Nailing propaganda materials on trees could stress them and make them vulnerable to insects and microorganisms," Alejandre warned.

To avoid and reduce the environmental impacts of the upcoming polls, the EcoWaste Coalition asked the candidates and their supporters to heed the following 5Rs for a more environmentally-caring campaigning

1. REJECT overspending for campaign activities and materials.

2. REDUCE trash by avoiding use of materials that are not necessary, reusable or recyclable

3. RESPECT the trees by keeping them poster-free.

4. RETRIEVE campaign materials for reusing or recycling purposes.

5. REMOVE campaign materials immediately after the polling day.

DSWD implements Government Internship Program

Legazpi City—The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Region V employed 80 youths in its offices and various local government units (LGUs) as part of the annual Government Internship Program (GIP).

The GIP is implemented by the DSWD in its 16 regional offices. There are 19 GIP participants deployed at DSWD Regional Office V while the others are scattered all over Bicol region (except for Masbate and Camarines Norte) at the local government units (LGUs).

GIP is one of the components of the Kabataan 2000 program of the government. It aims to provide in-school youths and out-of-school youths an opportunity to learn about the government and develop skills by hands-on experience to work in the government which they can use if they decide to join public service in the future.

“The GIP is also a chance for the youth participants to learn life skills in the workplace and earn additional money to defray a part of their school fees,” Dir. Arnel Garcia said.

The target participants are selected based on the following qualifications: a) 18-25 years old; b) Educational background (High School graduates, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Certificate holders, Alternative Learning System (ALS) certificate holders); c) in good health condition; d) monthly family income not more than Php8,022.00; e) Pag-asa Youth Association of the Philippines (PYAP) member; f) Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program beneficiary.

Lloyd Lara, DSWD Region V youth focal person, was able to identify and assess a total 120 GIP applicants last March.

Under this program, the GIP participants will receive PhpP217.50 daily stipend for 30 days based on the 75% of the current regional minimum wage rate. Payment will be computed based on the actual working days rendered and accomplishment report is required as basis for payment.

The GIP participants can claim their stipend after completing 30 days at the DSWD Region V while a cash payout will be scheduled for those deployed at the LGUs.

The program already commenced last April 16, 2018 and is expected to end on May 28, 2018. They are expected to perform office work, perform community work and assist in the implementation of DSWD programs and projects.

Radley Nuñez of Malinao, Albay is one of this year’s GIP beneficiaries who is currently deployed at the DSWD’s Office of the Regional Director. He is expected to receive a total of PhP6,525.00 if there are no attritions during the 30-daywork duration where he plans to buy school supplies and entrust the remaining money to his parents.

“Ang GIP ay isang paraan ng pamahalaan para ihanda kaming mga kabataan sa pagiging future public servants (The GIP is one of the government’s way to prepare our youth as future public servants),” Nuñez said.


PH infra program seen to boost Bicol economy

by Connie Calipay

LEGAZPI CITY -- The Duterte administration’s infrastructure program can boost and regain high economic growth rate of the Bicol region, said a local official of economic development and planning agency.

Agnes Espinas, National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Bicol regional director, said Thursday the "Build, Build, Build" program, which includes the Sorsogon-Samar bridges project, can address accessibility, expand markets and build connection with other regions.

"There were more production inputs, assistance in the capacity building for our farmers, irrigation facilities, machineries and equipment -- all these were made possible by the government. We cannot say that government is not doing something to help the economic performance of every region,” she said.

The Philippine Statistics Authority reported that the economic performance of the Bicol Region, as measured by the gross regional domestic product, slowed down by 5.1 percent in 2017 compared to the 5.5 percent growth recorded the previous year.

Espinas said the series of natural disasters that hit the Bicol Region last year negatively impacted on its economy

She believed that the natural calamities as weakness can be transformed into strengths by Bicolanos through building resiliency in the community. (PNA)

DILG to file admin case vs 11 Bicol villages for failure to organize BADACs

Eleven barangays in the Bicol region will face administrative cases at the Office of the Ombudsman by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) for failure to organize their Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Councils (BADACs).

“We will be filing administrative cases at the Ombudsman against the erring barangays officials of the 16 barangays for misconduct of office or dereliction of duty pursuant to Section 60 of the Local Government Code of 1991,” said DILG OIC-Secretary Eduardo M. Ano during a joint press conference with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) on Monday.

He said that the barangays have not yet organized their BADACs despite several directives from the DILG and Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB).

Of the eleven barangays, ten are in the town of Aroroy, Masbate and one in Gubat, Sorsogon.
In Aroroy, Masbate, the barangays with no organized BADACS are Bagauma, Balawing, Gumahang, Lanang, Macabug, Manamoc, Mariposa, Nabongsoran, San Isidro, and Talabaan.

In Sorsogon province, Barangay Cota na Dado (Poblacion) in the town of Gubat is also confirmed to have no organized BADAC.
The DILG Chief emphasized that the barangay officials will have a chance to defend themselves and undergo due process.

"Public office is a public trust. They are not private citizens. They are accountable of their duties and the public have the right to know if these tasks are delivered by them," he said.

Ano directed DILG Undersecretary for Barangay Affairs Martin Dino and Assistant Secretary for External and Legislative Affairs Ricojudge Janvier Echiverri to file the administrative cases at the Ombudsman.
He warned that the filing of cases against barangay officials with unorganized BADACs is just the first in a series of cases to be filed by the DILG.

“This is only the first batch because we are still in the process of culling all the reports from our regional and field offices and there are still over 600 barangays with no reports on their BADACs," he declared.

He also revealed that DILG’s monitoring of compliance of barangays in organizing BADACs is just the first step in the process because the Department further monitors the functionality of organized BADACs.

“When we say functional, it means that the concerned local government units (LGUs) have allocated substantial budget for the anti-drug campaign like community-based rehabilitation program," he said.

He said that barangays must have also submitted BADAC action plans to the concerned DILG offices and must have implemented the programs, projects, or activities listed in their action plan.
Functional BADACs, he said, are those that have significantly decreased the number of drug affectations in their barangays as to be validated by the PDEA.

According to DILG Memorandum Circular 2015-63 dated June 16, 2015, a BADAC is to be headed by a barangay chairperson while the vice-chair is a sangguniang barangay member or kagawad who is the chair of the barangay committee on peace and order.

Members of a BADAC are kagawad who chairs the barangay committee on women and family, SK chairperson, school principal (public) or representative, tanod chief or executive officer, representative of a non-government organization, representative of a faith-based organization such as from the Ugnayan ng Barangay at mga Simbahan (UBAS). I counseling and/or rehabilitation; and monitor disposition and progress of drug-related cases filed.
