Regional Director Norman Laurio emphasized that KALAHI-CIDSS is primarily centered on increasing the participation of community members in local planning, project implementation, monitoring, and sustainability.
“To ensure the functionality of the sub-projects, a sustainability evaluation is conducted six months after the sub-project completion and every year thereafter,” he elaborated.
The evaluation test is administered by the Multi-Stakeholders Inspectorate Team composed of staff from selected members of municipal and barangay local governments (LGUs) and community volunteers.
