UP Visayas Is DILG CapDev ACE Accelerator Awardee

The University of the Philippines Visayas (UPV) is a Game Changer Awardee of the 2022 Capacity Development Awards for Catalysts of Excellence (CapDev ACE) Accelerator Awards, spearheaded by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) – Local Government Academy.

Chancellor Clement Camposano, accompanied by DILG Western Visayas Regional Director Juan Jovian Ingeniero and Assistant Regional Director Maria Calpiza Sardua, received the award for UPV during the awarding ceremony, held in Manila, on Dec. 13. 

The CapDev Accelerator Awards is a recognition program of the DILG, which acknowledges the valuable contributions of partners and stakeholders in accelerating the realization of its goals and achieving excellence in local governance.

One major contribution of UPV was to the State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) Approach for Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP) Formulation: An Expansion Project from Western Visayas, which is a spin-off of the pilot project SUC-assisted Approach in CDP Formulation, a social media post by DILG Western Visayas said.

Funded by the Support to Local Governance Program (SLGP), the said project included capacity development interventions for 20 target LGUs and the establishment of a Management Information System (MIS) for CDP as the databank of local government units (LGUs) in developing their Ecological Profiles. 

The post further said that the MIS, after the completion of the project to the 20 LGUs, was expanded to 133 LGUs in Western Visayas. 

It added that for the past nine years, the University provided unrelenting effort in sustaining the partnership. 

Further, UPV is one of the founding members of the Western Visayas Local Governance Resource Consortium. (Mr. Carlson B. Alelis, IPO with a report from DILG-6)
