The enactment of Republic Act 7160 or the Local Government Code 1991 has once again been commemorated. The DILG – Local Governance Regional Resource Center (LGRRC) 6 flagship program Development Talk or DevTalk was the highlight of the 30th LG Code anniversary celebration in the month of October 2021. Thus, it served as the opening activity with the theme, “Reshaping Local Autonomy, Past 30: Revving-up Full Devolution Beyond the Pandemic, and its Three Decades of Promise to LGUs.”

For twelve years now, DevTalk has been institutionalized as the regional knowledge-sharing platform that operationalizes the principles of knowledge management, multi-stakeholdership and convergence. It has consistently served as an avenue for discussion on various areas of local governance and promote innovative practices among local government officials, government agencies, academic institutions, and other private institutions by showcasing best practices and notable initiatives, among others.

Eight selected local government units (LGUs) from Western Visayas imparted their strategies and best practices in contact tracing during the 3rd episode of Development Talk (DevTalk) Series on October 20, 2021, via Zoom and streamed through the DILG R6 Official Facebook Page.  

DILG Assistant Regional Director and LGRRC Manager Maria Calpiza J. Sardua stressed out the importance of sharing these best practices, as Contact Tracing has been a crucial strategy during the COViD-19 pandemic; and this sharing is a celebration of the efforts of the Contact Tracers as frontliners. 

“As a knowledge centric organization, we are putting value on these practices. More than the documentation in the form of AVPs and coffee table books, what is shared today will always remain in our mind and heart,” she added.
