Goals and Objectives

Development Objective of NCDDP:

To have barangays/communities of targeted municipalities become empowered to achieve improved access to services and to participate in more inclusive local planning, budgeting, and implementation.

 

NCDDP aims to:

  • Empower communities by treating them not as passive recipients of assistance and services but as partners in development;
  • Improve local governance by improving people’s engagement with and access to their LGUs, thereby making it more democratic and participatory;
  • Reduce poverty by implementing barangay-level projects that respond to the communities’ felt needs and problems.

NCDDP is expected to achieve the following benefits for communities:

  • Better access to basic services;
  • Improve core local poverty indicators in project municipalities;
  • Increase percentages of households that report an increase in knowledge, skills, and confidence to participate collectively in local governance activities in project municipalities;
  • Improve the attendance of members from marginalized groups in barangay assemblies
