The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Regional Office 13 (Caraga) leads in the conduct of Child Friendly Local Governance Audit (CFLGA) in the region.
Six (6) cities and sixty-seven (67) municipalities were assessed using the CFLGA tool to gauge their performance in delivering children and youth-specific social services in the community.
The CFLGA is an audit system that assesses the delivery of social welfare services on child and youth. It is a result-based assessment tool and a mandatory audit designed to identify the results of the intervention. The Council for the Welfare of Children has adopted the audit as a major tool in assessing LGU performance and uses its result as inputs in the Conferment of the Seal of Child Friendly Local Governance.
Results of the assessment were transmitted from the city/municipal level to the provincial level and to the regional level. The Regional Audit Team (RAT), chaired by the DILG and co-chaired by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) together with the Department of Education (DepEd) validates the results and prepares the consolidated regional overall rating for submission to the Regional Subcommittee on the Council for the Welfare of Children (RSCWC).
The Department supports the realization of cildren’s rights and building a “Child-Sensitive and Child-Friendly Society”, in accordance with the country’s commitments to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). (LGOO II Florian Faith Jr. P. Bayawa)
