It is almost the end of 2016! The hardworking employees of LWUA GAD GFPS/TWG have done excellently this year. With the end of the year comes year-end assessment and planning for the coming year as a matter of good management practice.

The GAD Year-end Assessment and Planning Session was conducted last December 7-9, 2016 at Baguio City by the members of the GFPS and its Technical Working Group. The session covered the assessment of the GFPS’s implementation of the PCW-endorsed 2016 GAD Plans and Budgets (GPB) while the planning involved the undertaking of the PCW-endorsed 2017 GPB and the preparation of the 2018 GPB for submission to the Philippine Commission on Women on January 31, 2017, together with the 2016 GAD Accomplishment Report.

The GFPS/TWG has invited Ms. Reina P. Olivar, a PCW-accredited GAD practitioner, as facilitator to effectively carry out the evaluation and planning of GAD activities. She also helped out in the drafting a three-year GAD agenda to ensure that yearly GAD activities are integrated and followed through in the yearly plans and budget.

For the first day of the session, Ms. Maria Victoria Nguho, TWG member, presided the forum. She discussed the 2016 accomplishments, their costs and evaluation, on the 2016 GAD Plans and Budget. For the second day, GFPS/TWG members and Ms. Olivar brain-stormed as to the implementation of the 2017 GAD Plans and Budgets in LWUA, including those which would directly impact the Water Districts.
