Local Working Groups

One key strategy used at project implementation was the formation and mobilization of working groups.The LWG members represented a range of stakeholders who get directly involved in the project, eventually becoming contributors rather than simply as bystanders. Regular meetings and listening sessions were conducted throughout the project areas. These have become convenient avenues for community bonding as well.

The following was the generic and flexible composition of each local working group.

  • Municipal Mayor as LWG Chairperson
  • Project Manager as Vice-Chairperson
  • Sangguniang Barangay Chairperson , Committee on Agriculture
  • Sangguniang Barangay Chairperson, Committee on Environment
  • Municipal Agricultural Officer (MAO)
  • Agricultural Technicians (ATs)
  • Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Officer (MENRO)
