Network sets platform for citizen involvement in LGU transparency
03 July 2013
The Citizen Action Network for Accountability (CANA) and its website was launched on 2 July 2013 in Quezon City. CANA plans to set up 28 citizen action groups all over the Philippines to help in monitoring LGU transparency and accountability.
CANA's new website (www.citizenaction.net) contains resources like background papers, reports, and a citizen toolkit for organizing and engagement. It also links up to CANA’s social media platform where citizens may report happenings in their local governments. CANA is an offshoot of the three-year project Philippine Public Transparency Reporting Project which is the DILG’s CSO partner in monitoring the compliance of the Full Disclosure Policy.
CLRG Researcher Raphael Montes Jr. contributed an article on LGU transparency in the CANA Reports. Another article on understanding LGU finances was written by CLRG faculty affiliate Jocelyn Cuaresma.
