PJPA JA 2001-3: The national wealth tax on indigenous energy resources: policy framework and implementation

This article aims to describe concrete examples of local democracy at work, and good practices that would hopefully inspire others to do the same. Five provinces were selected to serve as good practice cases and all of them are Galing Pook awardees. They were chosen because of their ability to influence the governance of municipalities and barangays within their jurisdiction. The five provinces clearly portray that devolution - as provided for in Republic Act 7160 - did contribute to promote local democracy. It is furthermore shown that the provinces could be a pivotal point in the drive for democracy, since not only could these provinces choose to democratize - they could also support the municipalities and barangays under them in this democratization venture. The five case-provinces were remarkable in the kind and level of citizen-participation that they generated.
