Good local governance connotes gender equality and women empowerment. This study focused on how local government uplifts the morale of the women constituents. Also, this study identified the gender-related concerns in the local government and the programs and projects in the local government towards women empowerment. The researcher anchors this study on the CIPP model of Daniel Stufflebeam (1983) to view and evaluate the programs developed by the local government and their decision-making process.

Building more networks could possibly help the GAD programs in the barangay.
