Transforming Local Government
- About the Book
Decentralization, following the passage of the Local Government Code (LGC) of 1991, has resulted in the realignment of the national agenda with local development plans. This book bears witness to the islands of good governance emerging from the success stories of LGUs that have embraced the promise of decentralization and local autonomy. It tells the story of how change management played a critical role in the transformation process.
