The Our Cebu Program is a concrete manifestation of collaboration geared towards putting Cebu, Philippines on the map as an ideal place to live, work, play, invest, and do business.
Initiated by the Cebu Provincial Government and RAFI, the Our Cebu Program is a five-year development program designed to strengthen the governance systems and structures of local government units, thereby improving livability and access to basic services, greening and protection of the natural environment, promoting Cebu’s ecotourism, and developing the sense of pride amongst the Cebuanos through the understanding of their culture and heritage.
Both the Cebu Provincial Government and RAFI believe that communities can be productive and self-reliant through the collaboration of stakeholders who share the same vision.
The Our Cebu Program has created the scorecard, a tool in the assessment and evaluation process, which is implemented through the collaboration of a multi-sectoral and multi-disciplinary panel of evaluators from different regional government agencies and private expertise.
The comprehensive framework of the program has encouraged the cities and municipalities of Cebu to improve their performance and governance systems and structures, and further develop their municipalities/cities.
