CDD Principles

KALAHI-CIDSS and CDD

KALAHI-CIDSS enables the effective and efficient delivery of social services through the CDD's core principles of Transparency, Participation, and Accountability

KALAHI-CIDSS
KALAHI-CIDSS

KALAHI-CIDSS empowers community members to become active drivers of development by facilitating the implementation of community sub-projects, especially in the poorest and most marginalized communities of the country

Transparency
Transparency

Transparency is operationalized when community members are able to participate in all levels of decision-making. The execution, implementation, monitoring, and management of community-based projects implemented by NGAs and LGUs are led by the community members.

Participation
Participation

Participation is operationalized when national government agencies and LGUs allow and foster the meaningful participation of community members throughout the development process. This participation should be present not only in the identification of community issues and problems, but also in the implementation of solutions to address them.

Accountability
Accountability

Accountability is operationalized when community members are engaged in the monitoring and evaluation of projects. Moreover, there is accountability when community members are empowered to take actions based on information that they themselves chose to take into consideration.
