Engendering local policies and plans: integrating WEE in the local policies and plans of Baybay City

  • Philippine Commission on Women (PCW)
  • Gender-responsive governance
  • Local governance
  • Leyte
  • GREAT Women Project

The city of Baybay was chosen as one of the pilot areas for the GREAT Women Project (GWP) mainly because of a convergence of partners for enterprise development, and the pressing women’s issues in the city. The City of Baybay has already developed plans and programs on gender, with both a GAD Code and a GAD Plan in place, even before GREAT Women Project implementation. In fact, Baybay City already appointed a GAD Focal Person who could start implementation of gender mainstreaming activities, women empowerment and women microentrepreneurs.
