From a third class city characterized by sluggish local economy, Naga in more than a decade has turned into a busy metropolis, a leading growth area in Bicolandia.
Outstanding are the expansion of the educational institutions, in numbers, physical infrastructures and course offering, the realization of Bicol Science and Technology Centrum which features a computer gallery, a mini-science library and Sci-Art Cubbyhole for toddlers and pre-schoolers, and mobile library.
Efforts to share the benefits of development to the local communities especially the urban poor are also gaining ground as more Non-government Organizations (NGOs) and Peoples' Organization (POs) work together for their own development.
Although the Naga City government has demonstrated some degree of success in local governance, the rapid growth it is experiencing seems to have little perceivable impacts in terms of equity. For some reasons, the observed growth has not trickled down to the poorer sector of the population in the form of creation of more jobs, provision of more economic opportunities, or a more equal distribution of income.
This year may be ordinary for some but definitely not for us, the Ateneo Student Researchers Pool (ASRP), because this is the year we celebrate our 10th year anniversary!
It has been a decade ago since our organization was established. This started when the Ateneo Social Science Research Center (ASSRC) got involved in the assessment of the Naga City’s implementation of the Local Governance Code or popularly known as GOLD project. Funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through the Associates in Rural Development (ARD), the project used the Social Weather Station’s (SWS) methodology, especially the right area coverage, in coming up with a quantitative measure of its assessment. For the three years of project implementation, the SWS served as the ASSRC’s mentor in the use of the poll’s methodology.more
