Vertically Integrated Civil Society Initiatives in the Philippines: a roundtable discussion

The RTD will reflect on how civil society action can promote more sustainable change. The presentation of a recent Government Watch (G-Watch)/Making All Voices Count (MAVC) study of citizen-led reform initiatives, Going vertical: citizen-led reform campaigns in the Philippines (December 2016) will help to jumpstart the conversation on vertical integration. These seven issue-based advocacy campaigns involved diverse, broad-based civic and social actors, engaged with multiple levels and branches of government. These initiatives emphasized citizen power, to generate scale and sustainability.

This event is presented by the City Government of Naga, Naga City People's Council (NCPC), Jesse M. Robredo Center for Good Governance (JMR Center), and G-Watch.
