Manila - December 8-10, 2009

Development practitioners from all over the Philippines are set to converge once again on December 8-10, 2009 at the Diamond Hotel in Manila for the 6th Community-Based Monitoring System (CBMS) National Conference.

The CBMS National Conference in the Philippines convenes national and local policymakers, planners and development stakeholders to discuss and share recent developments in line with the implementation and applications of the community-based monitoring system.  Over the years, the use of CBMS has been found useful for local development planning and budgeting, poverty mapping, program design and targeting, and monitoring the achievement of the millennium development goals. Among the highlights of this year’s conference are presentations on the uses of CBMS for monitoring the impacts of the global financial crisis on poverty.
