Close the MDG deficits, look beyond 2015 – Social Watch Philippines

Press Release
January 23, 2013
Isagani Serrano

With two years left to go before deadline of the United Nations – Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), prospects of achieving the country’s commitments are far from reassuring. However, considering the lag time involved, government targeted action – policies, programs, activities – may yet produce a brighter picture come 2015.

The assessment was made by Isagani Serrano, co-convener of Social Watch Philippines (SWP) and president of the Philippine Rural Reconstruction Movement (PRRM), in a 2012 report on the status of the MDGs.

Public Challenges to Investigate Vague and Hidden Budget Items for 2013

Public Challenges to Investigate Vague and Hidden Budget Items for 2013Social Watch Philippines (SWP) and Alternative Budget Initiative (ABI), the network of a hundred nongovernment organizations globally acknowledged for initiating legislator-citizens’ partnership in formulating and lobbying for alternative budget proposals for the national budget, is set to probe into President Benigno Aquino III’s proposed budget items for 2013 that are still unfamiliar; as well as those that are not visible in the national budget.

“We have to be more vigilant as the P2.006 trillion proposed 2013 appropriations is the first budget proposal to exceed the P2 trillion mark. This is 10.5 percent higher than 2012 budget and almost 21.9 percent higher than the 2011 GAA,” explained former national treasurer and SWP lead convenor Leonor Magtolis Briones. “More than half of the budget continues to escape scrutiny because of the special purpose funds, automatic appropriations and unprogrammed funds,” she said.
