ENABLE
MARKET RESPONSIVE
LOCAL POLICIES

by bridging research communities to local decision makers

In 2022, local governments across the Philippines will absorb functions currently being performed for them by the national government.

With enhanced local autonomy and a substantive increase in fiscal resources, this is an opportunity for local governments to enable growth-conducive and market-responsive policy environments and investment climate.

But with uneven technical capacities and knowledge, increased responsibilities can overwhelm local government offices, heighten social tensions, and intensify tendencies for arbitrary decision making or corruption.

The repercussions extend well beyond politics.

This ongoing process matters for business.

WE MAKE RESEARCH MATTER

To bridge gaps in the capacities of local governments

we are deepening public awareness and understanding of the local policy making process

enabling convergence in the research agenda of academic, scientific, and industry research communities

and mainstreaming state-of-the-art knowledge and skills to local policy communities and their stakeholders
