DREAMING BIG. The LGU of Jagna is one of the pilot municipalities in the Realising DReAMS project, together with Balilihan, Maribojoc, Pilar, Talibon and Tubigon, funded by the European Union (EU). The Realising DReAMS project conducted its DReAMS Project Southeast Asia Cluster Final Conference on September 12-13, 2013 at the Panglao Bluewater Resort, Panglao, Bohol. The project lasted for three years starting in 2010 providing technical assistance to the pilot LGUs in the linking of the Poverty Database Monitoring System (PDMS) with ecoBudget in local level planning. The PDMS provides data on which to base decisions of the LGUs in the prioritization of programs for implementation. The LGUs presented their output and Jagna presented its own with the identified catalyst project using the PDMS that is the Integrated Solid Waste Management.
