Quezon City's Payatas bags 3rd Galing Pook award
By Perseus Echeminada (philstar.com)
Updated January 22, 2009 12:00 AM

The controlled dump in Payatas has won for Quezon City its third Galing Pook Award.

The award is given to the best local governance programs by the Galing Pook Foundation, part of a global network of local governance awards that is also recognized in the US, Mexico, China, East Africa, South Africa and South America. Galing Pook picks the 10 best programs every year.

Quezon City Mayor Feliciano Belmonte Jr. spearheaded the program to unite the community, barangay leaders, non-government organizations and scavengers to find a solution to the Payatas dump following the passage of the Solid Waste Management Act of 2001, the law that banned all open dumpsites in the country in five years.

The Quezon City government transformed Payatas from an open dumpsite into a controlled dump wherein garbage is treated and covered with soil.

Streetlights were also installed in the community and alternative livelihood programs were introduced as Quezon City became the first urban center to implement the Solid Waste Management Act.

The Quezon City Controlled Disposal Facility is the first of its kind in the country that collects methane gas from the dumpsite and converts it into an alternative source of energy and electricity.

“The awards are based on the idea that government can be improved through the identification and dissemination of examples of effective solutions to public sector problems,” said Galing Pook Foundation chairperson Rafael Coscolluela.

He said Galing Pook winners have programs that can be replicated in other areas. Transferability and sustainability are part of the selection criteria.

Quezon City submitted two programs for the year. The Payatas rehabilitation program made it to the top ten, while the Senior Citizen Volunteer Program was also a finalist.

The third award for Quezon City makes the city government eligible for the Awards for Continuing Excellence, the hall of fame for Galing Pook winners.

City officials have tapped the services and expertise of the private sector, academe and government agencies to address problems surrounding Payatas, such as environmental health and safety, stability of the dumpsite, the surrounding community, livelihood needs, and compliance with the law.

In anticipation of the dumpsite’s closure, scavengers were provided financial assistance and skills training that allowed them to go into small business ventures.

Almost 1,000 families were relocated to safer areas with the assistance of various organizations.

The city government is being assisted by various institutions to continue providing healthcare, non-formal education and livelihood opportunities to the community.

Aside from Quezon City, Galing Pook will also recognize nine other local government units during the awarding ceremonies to be held in Malacañang.

The other winners are: Marikina City, Taguig City, Albay, Pampanga, City of San Fernando, San Carlos City in Negros Occidental, Allah Valley Landscape Development Alliance, Cotabato Province, and Barangay Sanito in Ipil, Zamboanga.

Marikina City centralized supplies, equipment and materials in the General Services Office Warehouse in order to achieve efficient service delivery at lower costs.

The warehouse is stocked with supplies that conform to the trend analysis of the consumption of items by various end users during different seasons.

Taguig City launched the Family Townhomes Project to provide decent and affordable housing for 20,000 homeless families by 2020.

Albay created a Public Safety and Emergency Management Office to design and implement a disaster risk management and reduction program.

They achieved zero casualties in the ensuing typhoons and volcanic eruptions in the first five years of implementation.

Pampanga province launched the Biyaya A Luluguran At Sisikapan or BALAS, which means sand in the local dialect, to improve tax collection from quarry operations.

The program collects P300 from trucks collecting sand from the quarry sites and the provincial government splits the amount among the affected barangays and municipalities.

The City of San Fernando has adopted the Public Governance System (PGS) scorecard, a measurement and management tool based on the Balanced Scorecard developed in Harvard Business School.

This system enables the entire community to work together towards achieving long-term strategic goals.

San Carlos City in Negros Occidental created the San Carlos Sustainable City Project that involves the development of a practical and sustainable master development plan that would turn the city into an ecologically oriented center of commerce and industry.

The Allah Valley Landscape Development Alliance (AVLDA) is a union of two governors, eight mayors, five regional directors of national government agencies, the chair of the Coalition of Social Development Organizations in South Cotabato and two Sangguniang Panlalawigan representatives to resolve the problems brought by the 252,034-hectare Allah Valley watershed.

Poor environmental management and massive deforestation have severely affected the Allah and Banga river systems. The AVLDA joined forces to implement an environment management plan, undertake comprehensive land use planning and community-based resource assessment mapping.

Cotabato province launched the Children First Program to find lasting peace in the province among its indigenous, Christian and Muslim peoples.

The province has been promoting friendship and camaraderie among children of these groups by having more learning, sharing and living interaction.

In 1995, Barangay Sanito in Ipil, Zamboanga, became a refugee camp for people fleeing the atrocities committed by Abu Sayyaf bandits.

Barangay leaders and the residents established the Sanito Barangay Government Code to strengthen links with the private sector, mandate additional fees for public works, water development and coastal resource management.

By imposing the barangay code through the participatory approach, the village leaders were able to complete projects like the Sanito Agro-Eco Tourism Park and Barangay Bagsakan market, which resuscitated the local economy, improved infrastructure and achieved peace and order.
