Social Welfare eServices to be Implemented in the Philippines

Following the release of the upgraded DSWD Regulatory eServices, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has announced that the online platform for the registration and licensing of Social Welfare and Development Agencies (SWDAs) and the accreditation of social welfare development programmes and services are now available.

The improved DSWD Regulatory eServices enable SWDAs to submit applications with the required documentation and to receive real-time updates on their application status. In addition, data validations are implemented to reduce the likelihood of human error and ensure that only accurate information is kept.

Erwin T. Tulfo, DSWD Secretary, personally traversed the online registration procedure for an SWDA account to observe how the platform functions. In his statement, Tulfo commended the DSWD Standards Bureau and the Information and Communications Technology Management Service for driving the improvement of the online platform as part of the department’s efforts to institutionalise digitalisation in the delivery of social protection programmes.

The improved DSWD Regulatory eServices will serve as the country’s centralised database, streamlining the process of generating reports, monitoring status, profiling, and filing applications for Social Welfare and Development Agencies.

This is one of the efforts aimed at achieving digital transformation in the delivery of fundamental services, and it considers a national health emergency, where physical separation is strongly advised. In addition, he praised and acknowledged the crucial contributions of the SWDAs in the provision of social welfare services to Filipinos.

With the enhancement of the DSWD Regulatory eServices, the Department aims to ensure the accuracy of data and information on the Registration, Licensing, and Accreditation (RLA) of SWDAs and to provide SWDAs and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) with digital access to the Agency’s regulatory services.

Meanwhile, the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) is anticipating that the upcoming 7th National Research and Development Conference (NRDC) would result in partnerships between various parties. The department also encouraged the public to observe these indigenous innovations.

According to the DOST, one of the presentations will focus on the utilisation of “kadios” or pigeon pea as the foundation of a locally formulated and sourced skin antibiotic. This study examines infectious bacterial skin illnesses such as acne, impetigo, and paronychia.

The Impact-Based Forecasting and Warning System, which aims to translate hazard information into prospective impacts, is an additional highlight, while the automated furrow irrigation system, which aims to increase production efficiency and sugarcane yield, will also be featured.

In the meantime, OpenGov Asia earlier reported that despite offering high-quality and fresh farm products on the market, local farmers’ incomes suffer due to their restricted access to consumers.

Thus, the DOST built and provided several technology-based platforms via which social marketing and data analysis might enhance smallholder farmers’ and micro, small, and medium-sized (MSMEs) businesses’ means of subsistence and revenues.

Agriculture, which is regarded as the foundation of the Philippine economy, is essential to bolstering the national economy, but it faces numerous obstacles that have a negative impact on farmers’ incomes, such as a lack of fully automated equipment, high input costs, and devastation from natural disasters.

Consequently, Farm Konek was established. It is an inventory and management tool for farms that focus on community impact. Through data-driven clustered and climate-resilient production among below-poverty-line smallholder farmers, this initiative aims to develop a sustainable clustered production of high-value and lowland vegetables.
