Development of Project Document (ProDoc) for Localizing e-Government for Accelerated Provision of Services (LEAPS) Project and DevLIVE+
Consistent with its mandate to prioritize the acquisition, adoption, innovation, and application of science and technology for development and its pursuit of competence, excellence and service innovation as provided in both the Organic Law for the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) and the Revised Transition Plan 2019-2022 for the Bangsamoro Transition Authority, the Bangsamoro Government, through the Ministry of the Interior and Local Government (MILG), forged a partnership with UNDP that seeks to apply, where possible, the strategic framework and principles of the UNDP-supported Access to Information (a2i) program to the specific social, cultural and economic contexts of BARMM.
The Localizing e-Government for Accelerated Provision of Services (LEAPS) Project will build on the a2i experience towards the transformation in local governance in BARMM by significantly accelerating connectivity in communities and opening up governance by enabling citizens to capitalize on the benefits of connectivity, such as through improved access to services and information, community enterprise development, assisted rural e-commerce, and skills development. The LEAPS Project is a way to overcome the dependencies on archaic, paper-based and manual processes within and among the local government units (LGUs). This project will also maximize the use of MILG’s limited manpower and resources to effectively and efficiently deliver and monitor frontline services.
The Development through Local Indicators and Vulnerability Exposure Database (DevLIVE+) is a system and a tool that is used to collect, organize, visualize and manage baseline data and information on the household, building structures and production areas for monitoring access to and delivery of basic services, assessing vulnerabilities and exposures to hazards and risks, and creating development pathways toward sustainable and progressive communities. It was developed as an expansion of the Climate and Disaster Exposure Database (ClimEx.db) from the United Nations Development Programme, Australian Government, and Climate Change Commission’s Resilience and Preparedness toward Inclusive Development (RAPID) program which is focused as an exposure database.
The DevLIVE+ generates socio-demographic profiles, not only at the municipal or barangay level but up to the household level. It also provides disaggregated data by sex, age, work, educational attainment, or spatial location through charts, lists, or even map locations that would facilitate analysis in crafting the local land use and development plans. Considering that significant socio-economic indicators can be captured related to access to basic services among others, local decision-makers have found the tool essential in resource allocation, prioritization of barangays and delivery of services, or justify their programs, projects, and activities using the DevLIVE+ to improve the conditions of communities who are either most vulnerable, left behind, or lacking in access to government services.
Originally designed to assess risks and exposure of households to natural hazards, the DevLIVE+ was further enhanced and expanded to collect data on non-residential structures i.e. commercial, institutional, and industrial, and agricultural production areas i.e. livestock, poultry, and fishing which are significant information to the exposure database of an LGU. The DevLIVE+ is implemented for a detailed evaluation of potential risks in an automated manner, which would significantly enhance the development of future local plans and programs
