					Similarities between Variables of the GeRL and the CBMS-GRB Tools:

Background:

The GeRL KA BA? (or Gender Responsive LGU Ka Ba) tool1 is a self assessment tool that was developed by the National
Commission on the Role of Filipino Women in cooperation with the Local Government Academy (LGA). This instrument
is designed to draw information on the current efforts and practices of the LGUs at the city and municipal level. One of
the main aims of this tool is for it to serve as a basis for the LGUs in determining the status of their GAD mainstreaming
in their localities and in developing their GAD Plans. It is a three part questionnaire composed of the following: Basic
information on the LGU, LGU Basic Services and other information.

The CBMS-GRB questionnaires were developed primarily for the Pilot Project on Developing a Gender-Responsive CBMS
or Community-based Monitoring System that will aid Local Government units in making gender-responsive and evidence
based planning and budgeting activities. This project is being piloted in two sites in Negros Occidental (Escalante City
and E. B. Magalona) in cooperation with DWAN Foundation and Dr. Aniceto Orbeta of the Philippine Institute for
Development Studies. These questionnaires are essentially enhanced CBMS questionnaires that were re-developed
based on the inputs of experts in gender as well as the sentiments of the partner LGUs of Escalante City and Magalona.
There are three questionnaires all in all: the CBMS Household Profile questionnaire (which is administered to all
households in the municipality or city), the CBMS Barangay Profile Questionnaire (administered to the barangay captain
and or barangay secretary) and the rider questionnaire (which includes other gender-relevant information that need
not be collected regularly and is being administered to select barangays).

The following table shows the relationship and similarities of the variables in the GeRL Tool and the CBMS-GRB data
collection instruments.
