Toward a More Effective Barangay Classification Scheme

To effectively deliver the national government services to the barangay, it was felt that a system of classifying barangays should be adopted. With the classification scheme in place, the National Barangay Operations Office (NBOO), under the Department of Local Government (DLG), can formulate development strategies appropriate for the different barangay types. Furthermore, the improved quality of information that the scheme will generate can furnish the DLG Secretary a more secure basis for perceptive analyses of the political and socio-economic situations of the local communities and thereby enable the said office to develop more relevant and responsive policies, programs, and projects.
