Naga City Council for Women

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

In 1999, the Sangguniang Panlunsod Committee on Women initiated a meeting of 13 NGOs and community based women’s organizations to brainstorm on what the city government should do to address women’s concerns. It also assessed the efforts of the government and NGOs to respond to gender issues.

The results of this meeting provided the inputs to Ordinance No. 2000-012 creating the Naga City Council Women and which was approved on March 8, 2000 on the occasion of the Women’s Day celebration.

It is a Tripartite women consultative and policy recommendatory body on the issues and concerns of women sector in Naga City.

This ordinance was revised by Ordinance No. 2002-053 which categorized the Council members into aggrupations based on the areas of concern to promote effective coordination and efficient resource complementation among the various stakeholders on women’s issues.
