Theme : How can data and technology help the LGU in dedicating sustainable livelihood for the informal settlers

Economy fuels community development. Thus, the local government should bring opportunities to its people by utilizing its local infrastructure to support economic progress. In this regard, the City of Butuan plans to cascade opportunities that will boost business potentials within the public lands and encourage informal settlers and private dwellers to take part in business reforms. This mission will be turned into reality through the city’s datasets that will be utilized in its local hackathons, where possible entries can be gleaned to craft economic reforms in the Housing and Human Settlements sector.
