Tanauan, Leyte

Profile and Area of Focus

This town of 54 barangays puts government service at its premium.

Tanauan, a 2nd class municipality, wants to develop an index that will measure the satisfaction of its constituents on the development of its plans, programs, and projects. It will reflect how the people appreciate the performance of the LGU. And it will also identify issues and concerns that the LGU should address to deliver its vision of seeing its constituents live in delightful communities.

The economic activities of the municipality are agriculture, livestock raising, fishing, forestry and mining, trade and industry, and tourism. Age-old skills in making bolos and weaving mats and artistry in using materials such as bamboos still provide income to some.

The index will be developed with the collaboration of many groups and associations, including academic institutions via the formation of a technical working group that shall give inputs to the Municipal Development Council.
