Sustainabilty | July 20, 2022

While sustainability is often the result of intensive community organizing and capacity building and rests on community ownership of the initiatives, BSK has also seen the crucial. if not, critical role of sustainability-enabling public policies and program or project designs. In many ways, our success stories in the many BSK communities we have built and expanded were also success stories of the host local government units and partner national government agencies which have provided the enabling institutional environment that facilitates program continuity through policy support, budget allocations, and other forms of assistance. 

BSK understands, however, that not all local government units have developed the sufficient capacities for building the institutional environment that can facilitate sustainable and truly empowering livelihood development initiatives.

With a pandemic still threatening our communities, the imperative to rebuild local economies, restart or open new and alternative livelihood opportunities has become more compelling, if not, crucial to our entire country’s recovery strategy.

It is in this light that our Board of Directors in partnership with the Center for Local Innovation and Capacity Development (CLICDPH, Inc) – a research and training consultancy firm developed the training courses contained here which were specifically designed to assist local government units around the Philippines in developing innovative policy solutions and designing high-impact programs towards rebuilding local livelihoods not just for a “new” but “better normal” in local communities.
