Seven staffs of the Bangsamoro Development Agency (BDA)- Central Management Office (CMO) and Six Regional Monitoring and Evaluation Officers (RMEO) from the six BDA Regional Management Offices (RMOs) underwent a Website Management Training on February 26-28, 2013 at the Community and Family Services International (CFSI) Training Center in Cotabato City.
The activity gave the participants the technical capability to manage the contents of the website which includes posting files like photos and texts, photo editing, and setting up links to other sites.
They were also briefed on the basic components of the website and were given tips on writing news articles.
The training was funded by European Union (EU), thru the International Monitoring Team – Humanitarian, Rehabilitation and Development Component (IMT-HRDC), and Mindanao Trust Fund Reconstruction and Development Program (MTF-RDP).
IMT-HRDC Information and Communication Technology Consultant Victor Sapar facilitated the training with inputs from some BDA staffs. He pointed out the importance of constant updating and posting correct information on the website.
On February 13-15, 2013, the facilitator trained the participants on cleaning and sharing data and utilizing free applications in the internet to publish information online at El Bajada Hotel in Davao City.
In line with its mission, the BDA implements development projects in the conflict affected areas of Mindanao with financial support from international development agencies like the Mindanao Trust Fund (supported by AusAID, NZAID, CIDA, SIDA, USAID, World Bank, EU), World Bank, United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), European Union, and Japan International Cooperation Agency.
