As the nation begins to implement the Mandanas Ruling in 2022, addressing the disparity in financial resources among local government units (LGUs), strengthening LGU capability, and boosting transparency and accountability are crucial to achieving decentralization. How can LGUs maximize their funding without compromising any of their strategies or objectives? The government’s financial planning and budgeting are the main instruments for achieving socioeconomic growth.
The webinar started with an Opening Message delivered by Dr. Malu C. Barcillano, Director of Center for Local Governance, and the Dean of the Graduate School.

Relucio, Provincial Director of the Department of Interior and Local Government of Camarines Sur, talks through and introduces strategic methods regarding the most effective way on the division of financial resources.
