Rappler PH joins LGRRC Multisectoral Advisory Committee


The Calabarzon Local Governance Regional Resource Center Multisectoral Advisory Committee has entered into a partnership with Rappler’s civic engagement arm MovePH to reinforce stakeholders engagement in the programs, projects, and activities of member-agencies in the region.

DILG IV-A Assistant Regional Director Ariel O. Iglesia, CESO V, and Rappler’s Head of Research and Content Strategy Gemma Mendoza, formalized the cooperation by signing a Memorandum of Understanding on March 21, 2017, during the committee’s first quarter meeting.

MovePH is Rappler’s citizen journalism arm which builds, nurtures and engages communities through intelligent conversations and stories that can move people to act.

Said partnership is a long-term commitment which allows the member-agencies of the committee to work hand-in-hand with the social news network in bringing government programs to the people through relevant and factual dissemination of information.

The LGRRC MSAC – MovePH partnership also seeks to promote and provide capacity development assistance in the use of crowdsourcing and community action response technology platforms such as the Agos E-Bayanihan, and the anti-corruption feedback platform #NotOnMyWatch of Rappler among others. As an offshoot, LGRC-MSAC

As an offshoot, LGRC-MSAC has set various activities to be undertaken during the first year of the partnership. These include the launching of the Not on My Watch Website; participation to the Social Good Summit; asset tracking and mapping of disaster risk reduction equipment for local government units in the region; and roll out of Barangay Disaster Preparedness Programs among others.

ARD Iglesia said that partnering with Rappler’s Move.PH is one of the ways of DILG IV-A and the LGRRC – MSAC to widen its network towards promoting good governance at the local level. (with reports from AM Idlao)
