“BUILDING CAPACITIES OF COMMUNITIES TO COPE WITH GLOBALIZATION” A Philippine Capacity 2015 Proposal 9 August 2004 Sulo Hotel, Quezon City
BACKGROUND According to the recent UN Common Country Assessment: * The poverty situation continues to be serious. * The country’s environment & natural resources on w/c 2/3 of the population depend, continue to be degraded. * Globalization is providing both opportunities & risks.
Background con’t… * Globalization has ushered a new context & connectivity among actors & activities. * SMEs,comprising 99% of enterprises & providing 76% of labor force has been recognized as a “potent force in the war against poverty”. * However, they only currently contribute 33% to total economic output because of:
a.) limited access to credit. b.) underdeveloped sources of raw materials. c.) limited access to modernizing technology. d.) lack or low level of market information. *SMEs’ unsustainable practices not only undermine their productivity, but also result in damage to the environment & adverse social impacts. Background con’t…
* The optimal functioning of SMEs is dependent on a conducive policy environment, proper provision of delivery of basic services & presence of critical infrastructure. * LGUs, through good governance, facilitate the provision of the above. * As a capacity building agent and repository of technical information & knowledge, the Academe provides the manpower & technical assistance direly needed by SMEs.
THE PROPOSAL Objective: Strengthen key factors that catalyze the sustainable development of communities e.g. partnerships among and capacities of the key actors at the local level-SMEs,LGUs & the Academe.
WHY SMEs * Free enterprises are the drivers of economic growth. * Wealth creation by local SMEs simultaneously address wealth & disparity issues. * SMEs empower local people through control & ownership of & benefits from productive dev’t., as well as, facilitate a high degree of participatory dev’t. * SMEs w/c are locally initiated & managed are more likely to be socially acceptable & culturally valid.
* Negative environmental impacts are more immediately felt & corrected at local levels. * Facilitating investment flows to local areas moderate the centrifugal flow of natural, financial & human resources to centers. * With ICT, technical &market information are easier to provide to local SMEs.
The Proposed Methodology Preparatory Assistance (PA) to undertake extensive consultations among stakeholders, experts and other interested parties to determine the elements, scope and methodology for the full blown project.
*PA to generate criteria to determine candidate sites & their rapid assess- ment in terms of conditions,gover- nance structures & inter-actions. * PA to catalyze mechanism building& strengthening of linkages among prospective partners.
PA to result in development of a Project Document (ProDoc)
Proposed PA Activities Activity 1: Project scope determination & formulation of site selection criteria. Activity 2: Data gathering site selection. Activity 3: Needs assessment for capacity building of critical stakeholders. Activity 4: Mechanism building/ strengthening
