MAKATI City– In preparation for the upcoming Listahanan 3rd Round Household Assessment this year, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) MIMAROPA has organized a Stakeholders’ Forum on February 8, 2019, for the Provinces of MIMAROPA Region.
The objective of the said forum is to establish commitment among the Listahanan stakeholders particularly on the four phases of project implementation.
This commitment setting between the DSWD and Listahanan partners is to ensure that the integrity of the database cannot be compromised due to various political or personal interventions of the DSWD field workers and even prominent personalities or institutions in the localities.
DSWD MIMAROPA OIC- Regional Director Floreceli Gunio emphasized in her message, that “the important roles and contributions of partners, particularly in building awareness, monitoring and airing or reporting of grievances, to ensure the accuracy of results and the integrity of the Listahanan database is paramount in all phases of Listahanan national household assessment.”
As such, DSWD partners also expressed their commitment by posting Listahanan advocacy tarpaulins in their respective offices once the household assessment kicks-off for the public awareness and community participation.
In this Listahanan 3, there are 622,230 target households (HHs) for assessment, of which 95,122 HHs for Occidental Mindoro province; 186,616 HHs in Oriental Mindoro; 50,618 HHs in Marinduque; 65,436 HHs in Romblon; and 224,438 HHs in Palawan.
The target HHs are based on the result of the 2015 HHs Assessment and the 2015 official census of population by the PSA.
Listahanan is a government mechanism that identifies who and where the poor are nationwide where the national database of poor HHs are being updated every four years as mandated by executive order 867. The first round of household assessment was conducted in 2009 and the second assessment was in 2015.
Meanwhile, 1,175 field staff will be hired for this 3rd assessment to administer house-to-house interview of the target households.###
