Six civil society organizations attended the EnCitE-OGD focus group discussion held at Panda Tea Garden Suites Tagbilaran City last 15 January 2015. The FGD, facilitated by Provincial Research Lead Ms. Marijoe Narca, was conducted to validate the results of the survey conducted by the team in December 2015.
The survey, validated in the FGD was intended to identify the training needs articulated by more than 20 CSO respondents in a training needs analysis (TNA) conducted in Dumaguete last December 2014. The results of both FGD and survey will serve as basis for a capacity building program on “Enhancing Citizen Engagement with Open Government Data”.
The CSOs present were PROCESS-Bohol, the Bohol United Sectors Working for the Advancement of Community Concerns, World Vision Philippines, FCB Foundation, People’s Fair Trade Assistance Center, Bohol Integrated Development Foundation, and the National Auxiliary Chaplaincy Philippines, Inc.
