Thirty-two barangays in Angeles were initially evaluated by Elyza Evilla of Department of Environment and Natural Resources—EMB Region III; Ladislao Puno III of Department of the Interior and Local Government – Angeles City; and Lisa Juco of Office of the Civil Defense Region III from June 18 to 20, 2024 at Kapebaluan.

From the 32 participating barangays, the evaluators will choose 20 barangays who will qualify for the second round of evaluation, which will mainly evolve on actual visit to various barangays. 

Lazatin said this project is also to “Build Back Better” communities to encourage implementation of intensively and extensively proactive, participative, sound, and sustained programs, projects, and activities on socio-economic, environmental, and risk reduction management.

The barangay which will be the grand winner will receive ₱1.5 million cash incentive; second place will get ₱600,000; third place will receive ₱300,000; and consolation prize is ₱150,000 to ₱100,000 depending where the barangay will finish.

Among the criteria for judging are Urban Farm and Greening Program (35%); Solid Waste Management and General Cleanliness Program (35%); and Disaster Risk Reduction, Peace and Order, Health and Sanitation Program (30%). 

Lazatin said that the city needs programs to proactively cope with future disasters in order to further raise the resiliency of communities, institutions and sectors. Angeles CIO
