ABOUT CBMS-Philippines

The Community-Based Monitoring System is one of the tools developed in the early 1990s under the Micro Impacts of Macroeconomic Adjustment Policies (MIMAP) Project -Philippines to provide policymakers and program implementers with a good information base for tracking the impacts of macroeconomic reforms and various policy shocks.

The CBMS work in the Philippines evolved after it was observed that there was no disaggregated data then for planning, program formulation, policy impact and poverty monitoring. There was also a need for support mechanisms for the implementation of the decentralization policy. The CBMS is envisioned to serve as a tool for local governance and complement the national poverty monitoring system. The CBMS can likewise facilitate the implementation of targeted poverty reduction programs with its household and individual level data as well as the monitoring and evaluation of these poverty reduction programs.

CBMS has been adopted by local government units in the Philippines since 2000. Various policy issuances by LGUs and national government agencies including the Department of the Interior and Local Government , the National Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC), and the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB) have recognized the usefulness of CBMS for generating the necessary disaggregated data for various thematic concerns including local planning, grassroots participatory budgeting, poverty diagnosis, monitoring the Millennium Development Goals (MDG), disaster-risk reduction management (DRRM) and climate change adaptation (CCA), gender and development, impact monitoring, and food insecurity  among others. Technical support to LGUs on the implementation and use of the standard CBMS modules on data collection (CBMS paper-track and CBMS Accelerated Poverty Profiling using tablets), data processing and use of CBMS data in preparing local development profiles and plans is being provided by a pool of accredited CBMS trainers from the DILG and the CBMS International Network Office of DLSU.
