The Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) held a public webinar on November 23, 2023, from 2:00 PM to 4:30 PM, via Zoom.
This webinar featured the PIDS study titled “Revisiting Metropolitan Governance: Improving the Delivery of Urban Services through Inter-LGU Cooperation” authored by PIDS Vice President Marife M. Ballesteros, Research Consultants Elmer S. Mercado and Amillah Rodil-Ocampo, Supervising Research Specialist Tatum Ramos, Senior Research Specialist Pauline Joy Lorenzo, and Research Specialist Jenica Ancheta.
The study explores the concept of interlocal cooperation in addressing the resource limitations of local government units in the Philippines, particularly in efficiently delivering urban services. It investigates models of cooperation in the delivery of critical urban services, such as solid waste management and health care, and evaluates the management structure, financing strategies, sustainability, and issues affecting operationalization.
