The institutionalization of CBMS is in pursuant to Republic Act (RA) No. 11315 or the Community-Based Monitoring System Act. It is an economic and social tool for the formulation and implementation of poverty alleviation and development programs which are specific, targeted, and responsive to the basic needs of each sector of the community.  Furthermore, CBMS refers to an organized technology-based system of collecting, processing, and validating necessary disaggregated data.  It will be useful for planning, program implementation and impact monitoring at the local level. Through the conduct of the CBMS, several local-level key development indicators that capture various aspects of quality of life in cities and municipalities will be gathered and compiled, particularly on: (a) health, (b) nutrition, (c) housing, (d) water and sanitation, (e) basic education, (f) income, (g) employment, and (h) peace and order.

Highlights of the Press Launch will be tweeted live through the Twitter account @PSA07govph and will be live-streamed on PSA-RSSO VII's official Facebook page.
