Local Governance Resource Center to be instituted in MIMAROPA
MIMAROPA (14 September) -- With the Local Governance Resource Center (LGRC) instituted in other regions, MIMAROPA aims to follow their footsteps and be one of the pioneers in establishing an LGRC that would be fully responsive to the needs of its people.
In the LGRC Multi-Stakeholder Coordinating Committee re-orientation and conference recently held at the DILG IV-B Conference Room, Quezon City, DILG IV-B Regional Director, Rolando Calabazaron, bared the plans of creating a network where agencies in the MIMAROPA region can efficiently carry out their respective programs.
According to Director Calabazaron, "Any agency cannot be reactive to their clientele without linking to other agencies and tapping their respective expertise, LGRC being the main highway of management sharing."
The LGRC is a dynamic, interactive and virtual program that contributes to building DILG as a knowledge centric organization or KCO and builds learning communities that pursue local governance excellence through knowledge sharing and innovation.
LGRC aims to promote a culture of learning and knowledge sharing in pursuit of sustainable development through excellence in local governance and facilitate integration of knowledge management in local governance.
The meeting was attended by stakeholders from MIMAROPA namely, DILG, DOH, PNP, DSWD, BFP, DepEd, PIA, Haribon, and other agencies supporting the endeavor.
A planning workshop will be held in October this year to follow-up and finalize the institution of LGRC in the region where experts from the stakeholders are expected to participate. (PIA) [top]
