  2. to inform the public in general and women in particular on the actual amount that will be made available by the different departments in government on gender responsive projects as a result of the inclusion of Section 27 of the General Appropriations Act;
  3. to strengthen GO/NGO participation which is one of the commitments of the Philippines in the Beijing Conference held last September.
