I am one of the lead proponents and researchers for the study entitled “Peace and Security Local Government Innovations: The Galing Pook Experience”. It draws from many good practices, and innovative and creative local governments over the past twenty-five years, as demonstrated by the Galing Pook Program initiated in 1993 by the Local Government Academy of the Department of the Interior and Local Government and the Asian Institute of Management. Among the factors behind local government innovations include autonomy, increased capacities, access to resources, and leadership of the local governments and sub-national institutions. This study explores specifically leadership as a fundamental factor behind innovative local governments drawing evidence from the Galing Pook awardees – particularly from the Peace and Security category – over the past two and a half decades.
This is an internal study.
