ABOUT THE COVER AND THEME

The perfect form of the dome has endured as a symbol of great human achievement from the time of the Pantheon until this day. It is a place where people converge to discuss and agree on issues that are important to them. Some cultures even consider it as a symbol of the universe enclosing a sanctuary where God and man meet.

The NCPAG dome reflects this history and signifies the relationships that the College strives to build and intensify as it takes on new challenges in the fulfillment of its mandate. The dome is where the students, faculty, staff and guests assemble to celebrate the College’s most important events. As the College steps into an era of greater expectations brought about by the coming UP Centennial in 2008, the contributions of its partners are central and essential to what the College has envisioned to achieve in the coming years.

MESSAGE

I would like to congratulate the faculty and staff of the UP National College of Public Administration and Governance on your excellent achievements in 2005.

I am glad that your accomplishments have been recorded for posterity.

Future generations of students and administrators will have much to learn from you. Your theme “Forging Stable Partnerships in Managing Change” is also a timely one. Stability and unity are certainly essential elements for us to be able to get our national and local governance back on track for the good of the country.

May the NCPAG continue to build on its past successes and lead the way in public administration research and education.

Mabuhay kayong lahat!

MESSAGE

This “Annual Report” lists the activities and achievements of NCPAG in 2005. It is of great interest because while some of the achievements listed here seem to have limited significance, such as the development of a mini-forest in the back of the NCPAG building, others have a broader impact, like the rendering of extension services

to different government and non-governmental institutions. Certainly, the college’s continuing pursuit of excellence in the field of public administration and governance, both through teaching and research, impacts the country widely and proves that NCPAG is doing its job in nation building.

and proves that NCPAG is doing its job in nation building. In perusing this “Annual Report,”

In perusing this “Annual Report,” it would be wise to note NCPAG’s unwavering commitment to what the college’s website refers to as the NCPAG values, such as fairness, equality and integrity. These values, along with progressive thinking and dedication to public interest, inform and underpin all the programs of NCPAG, academic or otherwise, and they should inform and underpin all the programs and policies of those in the government. Only through such unwavering commitment to these values will true and sustainable progress take place in our country.

Congratulations to the teachers and staff of NCPAG.

Introduction by the Dean

4 Introduction by the Dean These are interesting times for the College. These are good times

These are interesting times for the College. These are good times as well.

The year 2005 was a year marked by our continuous efforts to build upon the hard earned gains of the College over the past 53 years. Building upon the efforts of our predecessors, we strengthened our local and international networks, including the Association of Schools of Public Administration (ASPAP) and the Eastern Regional Organization of Public Administration (EROPA). We have been given a tremendous boost in the arm with the assistance of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Fostering Democratic Governance (FDG) Programme. Our College has been designated as the implementing partner for said Portfolio from 2005 to 2009.

It will also be recalled that the NCPAG has been rated by the Commission on Higher Education as the Number One and only Outstanding school of Public Administration in the country. While the honor is indeed significant and a feather in our cap, the fact is that being Number One carries with it tremendous responsibilities. NCPAG, therefore, continues to play a central role in shaping the agenda of the discourse and praxis of public administration and good governance in the Philippines.

It is within this context that our Annual Report for 2005 focuses on the theme “Forging Stable Partnerships in Managing Change.” It underscores the key role of the College in leading and coordinating efforts to manage change in the Philippine politico-administrative system through forging stable partnerships between and among the key actors and stakeholders of governance – practitioners and academics of public administration – national and local government agencies, non-government organizations (NGOs), people’s organizations (POs), the private and business sector, schools of public administration, and development agencies.

It has always been said that good governance is the missing link to improve public service delivery, combat corruption, pursue economic development and growth across regions which redound to national development. Indeed, the status quo is not acceptable. We have to work together to promote the necessary reforms at national and local government levels, where organizational and institutional reforms are necessary. We need to forge partnerships in leading and implementing change and governance reform initiatives for good governance.

May I take this opportunity to thank the NCPAG family – the faculty, lecturers, the center directors and staff, library and administrative personnel – for their continued commitment to be of service to the College and the University and to the clients of NCPAG. We are also grateful to Chancellor Sergio Cao and President Emerlinda Roman for their continuing support and encouragement.

Finally, indeed, 2005 has been another good year for all of us. For this we jointly thank our Lord for the many blessings He has bestowed upon us. We thank each and every member of the NCPAG family for the hard work, dedication, cooperation and sacrifice that led to these collective accomplishments we can all be proud of.

Indeed, these are very interesting times for public administration and governance in the Philippines.

T he National College of Public Administration and Governance (NCPAG) has been the pioneering

leader of the discipline in the Philippines and in Asia

since its establishment as the Institute of Public Administration in 1952. The College was established as an offshoot of a contract between the University of the Philippines and the University of Michigan to provide training, teaching and research advocacy in public administration mandated as an institution that would help in nation building.

It started with a Master of Public Administration program and a Bachelor of Arts in Public Administration program. The Doctor of Public Administration program was instituted in 1968. In the same year, the undergraduate program was phased out. To respond to the need for entry-level staff positions in the public service, the undergraduate program was, however, reinstituted in 1987. A Diploma program was also offered starting the following year to enable administrators to pursue specialized courses in public administration without going through the long master’s degree.

Since its inception, the College has changed its name four times—from an Institute to Graduate School

to College to National College of Public Administration

and Governance.

the College—the Institute of Environmental Planning

Two major units created as part of

(now School of Urban and Regional Planning [SURP]) and the Philippine Executive Academy (now Center for Integrative and Development Studies [CIDS])—are now independent units of the University.

As it pioneered in the study and practice of public administration vis-à-vis the government, the College has broadened its perspective by expanding the definition of the scope of public administration to include governance for the public interest. This is the rationale for the transformation of the College to the National College of Public Administration and Governance, which was approved by the U.P. Board of Regents in its 1126 th meeting on 26 November 1998.

In 2004, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) officially recognized NCPAG as the most outstanding school of public administration in the country. Along with this honor came the responsibility of being able to lead other schools of public administration by continually pursuing excellence in all its endeavors.

In performing its three-fold function of instruction, research and extension service, it has broadened its scope from governmental management to the broader concerns of governance, including the roles of the private sector and civil society.

Key Areas of ACHIEVEMENT in 2005

T hrough decades-long collaboration with international institutions and local organizations, NCPAG has built for itself a long list of partners and co-workers in its aim to put excellence and integrity

into public service and governance. These partnerships have led to many researches, training programs, and assessment programs for both the Philippine government and other international bodies to ensure that the values that the College espouses are incorporated into the democratic processes of good governance and public administration.

Fostering Democratic Governance Portfolio

Under the Government of the Philippines-United Nations Development Programme (GOP-UNDP) 2005-2009 Country Program Action Plan (CPAP), the Fostering Democratic Governance Portfolio (FDGP) is focused on furthering the three strategic reform areas that will build from the gains and lessons in previous country cooperation in the Philippines:

(i)

political reform, which gives emphasis on the enhancement of democratic political institutions and processes that are inclusive and participatory, a responsive and effective process of legislation, credible and efficient electoral process and an inclusive and participatory political system;

(ii)

public administration reform, which pursues administrative reforms, anti-corruption measures, effective capacity building for national and local bureaucracy and partner institutions, and aid coordination; and,

(iii)

justice reform, which underscores a sustained and harmonized reform within and among the five pillars of the criminal justice system – law enforcement, prosecution, courts, correctional and community integration.

The strategy emphasizes the progressive realization and implementation of the standards of human rights and institutionalization of reforms for democratic governance. This “Rights and Reforms for Results” (RRR) approach is grounded locally where interventions are directed not only at the national level but also, more importantly, demonstrated at the level of LGUs and grassroots communities. It calls to task the “duty- bearers” and enables them to perform their obligations in providing the enabling environment for expanding opportunities for human freedoms and human development.

In 2005, UP-NCPAG was designated as the Programme’s Implementing Partner led by Dean Alex B. Brillantes, Jr. The UP-NCPAG is part of the Advisory Board, which is also composed of Mr. Antonio C. Fernandez, Jr. of NEDA, Dr. Emmanuel Buendia of UNDP, and some members of the GOP-UNDP Executive Committee. The Advisory Board decides at the policy and oversight level the direction and general programme priorities for the period 2005-2009 in the CPAP.

The Implementing Partner regularly convenes with their respective Responsible Parties into appropriate clusters for convergence and synchronization of project activities, as well as proper coordination of the Annual Work Plan (AWP) implementation to ensure that programme outcomes are being met.

Diliman Governance Forum

Spun off from the Policy Issues Forum conducted by the College during the term of Prof. Ledivina V. Cariño as Dean, the Diliman Governance Forum (DGF) was established as a venue for the discussion of current issues, problems and concerns in public administration and governance for the purpose of influencing policy and decision-making in the government. It was launched in September 2004 with the theme Reinventing, Reengineering and Reorganizing the Bureaucracy in the Philippines: Why We Should Be More Hopeful graced by Prof. Emilia Boncodin, who was then the Secretary of the Department of Budget and Management, and Chairperson Karina Constantino-David of the Civil Service Commission as guest speakers.

The success of the first DGF was followed by ten more DGFs in 2004 and 2005 and the publication of the working papers presented in three of the Fora held. The year 2005 produced seven DGFs touching on major issues in politics, governance and economics. A continuous stream of high profile and sometimes, even controversial, combination of resource speakers and reactors from the academic community, members of the civil society, students, media and the government enhanced and deepened the discussion among the participants and the audience. The Forum also became a venue for concerned Centers in the UP Diliman system, civil society groups, international academic institutions, development organizations, and students to work together by their partnership in co-organizing the Forum on the topic in line with their advocacy.

Philippine Democracy Audit Project

The Philippine Democracy Assessment Project is part of a loose network of countries doing their respective democracy audit using the framework of the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA) Sweden. Other countries that have either done or updating the democracy audit are Bangladesh, El Salvador, Italy, Kenya, Malawi, New Zealand, Peru, South Korea, United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada.

Two papersFree and Fair Elections, and the Democratic Role of Political Partieswere presented and included in a book, Philippine Democracy Assessment, which was sponsored by the Friedrich- Ebert-Stiftung Foundation. The forum and papers on the study on Economic and Social Rights and Minimizing Corruption will commence in 2006.

Asia Link Programme

The year 2005 also saw the conclusion of a three-year project by NCPAG and its partner institutions in the Asia Link Program. The partners designed the “Curriculum Development for Urban Planning and Management with emphasis on Poverty Alleviation (UPA)” (www.itc.nl/bridge/ asialink.html) as a response to the challenge of

managing the urbanization process to ensure that it becomes a mechanism through which poverty can be reduced. The UPA curriculum is a component of the Asia-Link programme that was launched at the beginning of 2002 as an initiative by the European Union (EU) to foster regional and multilateral networking between higher education institutions in EU Member States and South Asia, Southeast Asia, and China.

The project produced five educational packages on Poverty, Land Management, Best Practices in Planning, GIS for Poverty Mapping and Poverty Alleviation, and New Approaches and Instruments for Poverty Alleviation. All these packages consist of a curriculum, a set of readings, audiovisual materials, maps, and other pertinent teaching materials that will be enough for three weeks of teaching each package. The materials, resources and scope that were integrated into the curriculum can be extended and be made relevant to any university that decide to implement the curriculum.

Throughout the Project, NCPAG worked with the International Institute for Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC-The Netherlands), Faculty of Spatial Planning (SPRING) University of Dortmund (Germany), School of Urban Studies Wuhan University (PRC), and University of the Philippines School of Urban and Regional Planning (SURP).

The Philippine Democracy Audit Project hosts a Diliman Governance Forum that invited experts from the government and civil society to speak about their assessment of how the various institutions and structures of democracy actually work in the Philippine context. Undersecretary Chito Gascon and Institute for Political and Electoral Reform Executive Director Ramon Casiple were among the experts who were invited to speak in the Forum.

2005 Publications

In line with its research and extension services, NCPAG publishes books through the Publications Office, the Centers and the members of the faculty. Many of these publications are circulated internationally.

In 2005, the Publications Office produced two issues of the Philippine Journal of Public Administration (PJPA). The PJPA is a quarterly journal distributed to individuals and institutions dedicated to the practice of public administration and governance all over the world and is the official journal of NCPAG. The Publications Office also published three other books and three issues of the Working Paper Series, a compilation of papers presented at three DGFs.

The faculty members also had several works published individually. They produced eight articles published in different books or journals, six books, fourteen papers and six articles published in a magazine or periodical.

Four of the College’s faculty received International Publication Award citations from President Emerlinda R. Roman of the University. Dean Alex B. Brillantes received the award in 2004 and 2005. Dr. Edna Estifania A. Co, Prof. Maria Fe Villamejor Mendoza, and Prof. Gabrielle R. Iglesias received the 2005 International Publication Award. Dr. Co received two awards for a journal article and another for a book article.

Improvement of College Facilities

Major institutional partners, the NCPAG Alumni Association, and some of its individual members gave support to the renovations in the College, which started in 2004 with the Office of the College Secretary, the Center for Public Administration and Governance Education (C-PAGE), and the NCPAG GIS Laboratory. This was followed in 2005 with the construction of the NCPAG Dome, where the monthly flag ceremony, major College assemblies, and the college recognition rites are now held. In the same year, the Publications Office, library, assembly hall, and the atrium were refurbished or constructed to maximize college facilities for the needs of the students, faculty, and the centers.

relationships that have been nurtured through the years. Along with the College’s growth were the increasing support of its old partners and the increase of its network linkages in the region and other parts of the world. Over time, its network has allowed NCPAG to increase its competence and contribute to a larger region.

In 2005 alone, NCPAG built alliances with 27 international institutions and 19 local organizations and government agencies. The year witnessed training programs, publications, seminars and workshops, international conferences, and researches commenced in partnership with these foreign associations. There were also several development and technical assistance projects, research, training programs and validation reports conducted by the College for its local linkages. Also, several major partner organizations and institutions have now found their new home in the College to foster closer coordination with and greater involvement in NCPAG.

The Eastern Regional Organization for Public Administration (EROPA) was

established in 1960 as an organization of states, institutions, groups and individuals whose achievements in the field of governance and public administration are widely recognized in the general area of Asia and the Pacific. The organization has had three Secretary Generals, all of whom were prominent members of NCPAG: Dean Carlos P. Ramos, Dean Raul P. De Guzman and Sec. Patricia A. Sto. Tomas.

In 2005, the organization published an issue of its official journal, the Asian Review of Public Administration (ARPA). The ARPA has an editorial board of representatives of EROPA member states

and individual members.

In August 2005, EROPA organized the Workshop on Community (Civil Society) Engagement in Public Finance at the Sub-national held in Brisbane, Australia. It brought together EROPA members to discuss how communities and the civil society can get involved in

the discourse of local governance, public finance and service delivery. The workshops discussed entry points for people participation in these sectors of governance, while case studies from Thailand, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Australia and the Philippines brought the delegation to fully recognize that participatory budgeting and social auditing are fundamental mechanisms to engage citizens towards the realization of the MDGs.

NCPAG worked closely with EROPA to produce the conference papers and news bulletin for the Vietnam Conference 2005 where EROPA members were convened to discuss the theme, The Role of Public Administration and Governance Stakeholders in Attaining the Millennium Development Goals.

The GOP-UNDP recognizes the UP NCPAG and ASPAP as key actors in implementing the FDGP. The 5-year project entitled, Enhancing the Capacities of Schools of Public Administration in the Philippines, has several accomplishments in 2005 that significantly advanced its long-term goals.

During the third quarter, the partnership conducted a curriculum review and enhancement of ASPAP schools that set core competencies of the teaching of the program, including the teaching of Governance and Development that focused on the MDGs and recent trends of governance.

ASPAP also held several conferences and fora as well as hosted one DGF on the localization and implementation of the RBAs and MDGs to local governance. The partnership was also able to develop tools and infrastructure to establish regional chapter/cluster for ASPAP and develop a guidebook on how PA schools can extend technical and extension assistance to strengthen its members’ capacity to be

greatly involved in local development. The development and update of the ASPAP and NCPAG website also created stronger linkages and increase visibility among the ASPAP members, local government units (LGUs) and national government agencies (NGAs).

Started in March 1998, the Philippine Nonprofit

Sector Project (PNSP) is a project of the System Office of the Ugnayan ng Pahinungod in partnership with the Johns Hopkins University and is funded by the Ford Foundation through the management of the UP Foundation.

The PNSP is housed at NCPAG and is directed and led by Dr. Ledivina V. Cariño, a faculty member of the College. The Project has a Board of Advisers with members who have been veterans and major contributors of the civil society sector in the country. It is run by a team of voluntary research consultants, many of whom are faculty members of NCPAG, a small full-time staff, and survey contractors.

NCPAG Professor at the 2005 UN World Summit

Prof. Leonor Magtolis-Briones, a senior faculty member of the College, was chosen by the President of the United Nations General Assembly to represent civil society at the 2005 Millennium Plus Five (M+5) Summit from 14 to16 September 2005 which served as the High-Level Plenary Meeting of the 60th session of the UN General Assembly.

The Professor’s speech was delivered during the Financing for Development Meeting of the Summit. Professor Briones’ message in the 2005 M+5 Summit was, “The Millennium Development Goals will not be

reached by 2015.”

views of civil society regarding financing the Millennium

Development Goals (MDGs), covering domestic resources, foreign investment, ODA, trade and debt. According to Professor Briones, after five years of adopting the MDGs, civil society organizations have found that the Millennium Declaration has not been able to deliver its promises and “the financial resources identified under the Monterrey Consensus have not all been generated.”

Professor Briones articulated the

Aside from her accomplishments in the academe and as a former Treasurer of the Republic of the Philippines, Prof. Briones has been deeply involved in civil society given her current status as co-convenor of Social Watch Philippines and as a member of the International Coordinating Committee of Social Watch. The world-wide network monitors the implementation of government commitments to social development, particularly the Copenhagen Summit and the MDGs. Professor Briones has also been an advocate for adequate financing for the MDGs in many parts of the world.

She was also a member of the Philippine delegation to the preparatory meetings, as well as the Summit on Financing Development held in Monterey, Mexico, in 2002. Since then, she has participated in assessments on the implementation of the MDGs in roundtable discussions and conferences at the United Nations in New York.

She called on the heads of states and leaders of governments to take action on the agreements on financing the efforts to reach the MDGs by 2015; thus, she ended her speech with:

Center for Public Administration and Governance Education (C-PAGE)

The Faculty

The faculty is an invaluable resource in NCPAG since its members are the key implementers of the College’s programs and have always stood at the forefront of working with our partners.

There are 26 full-time faculty members in NCPAG with six of them holding concurrent administrative and teaching positions. For the academic year 2005-2006, two faculty members were on special detail --Dr. Ma. Concepcion P. Alfiler as Vice President for Finance and Administration of the U.P. System and Dr. Victoria A. Bautista as Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs of the U.P. Open University. Prof. Emilia T. Boncodin, who was on secondment to the Department of Budget and Management, returned to NCPAG in October 2005 as a regular faculty member.

Faculty members are frequently invited to present their research projects in both local and foreign conferences. Featured here is University Professor and former Dean, Dr. Ledivina V. Cariño.

By the end of 2005, individual members of the faculty have completed 26 research and publications projects with 14 more ongoing, mostly financed by external funding institutions. Under the allocation of the U.P. Central Administration to NCPAG, P72,250 was allocated for the Faculty Development Fund and P70,370 for the Research Dissemination Grant. These funds were used to send Prof. Noriel Christopher Tiglao to the International Conference on Computers in Urban Planning and Urban Management in the University College London, England and Prof. Edna Estifania Co to the conference on Redesigning the State? Political Corruption in Development Policy and Practice at the University of Manchester, Manchester, United Kingdom to deliver their papers.

T he C-PAGE, through the leadership of Prof. Mila A. Reforma as College Secretary and Director of Studies, implements NCPAG’s mission to be the center for excellence in education for public administration and governance.

It has three major academic programs. The Bachelor of Arts in Public Administration (BAPA) is a four-year course that provides sound theoretical knowledge and practical skills in public administration using the core values of accountability, service and integrity designed to prepare students for careers in government or in civil society organizations. The Master of Public Administration (MPA) program gives the basic groundwork of the different theories, concepts, perspectives, models and approaches in public management to equip them for higher and more complex responsibilities in public service. The student can pursue any of the four options under the program. For highly qualified students, the Doctor of Public Administration (DPA) is a program designed for teaching, research and consultancy, as well as for managerial positions in government and public service-oriented institutions.

different courses in the College to foster a richer academic environment for its students. For the academic year 2005-2006, there were 13 lecturers during the first semester and 12 on the second. In the course of the academic year, several resource persons from the government and the civil society were invited to deliver special lectures to BAPA or MPA classes. These special lectures covered a wide range of topics from reforms needed in the human resource development in the bureaucracy to discussions on the electoral system.

The Students

For the Academic Year 2005-2006, there were 712 enrollees in the first semester and 678 during the second semester in NCPAG.

The synergy among the College and University officials is integral in consolidating both the College’s and University’s goals. Shown here is UP Diliman Chancellor Sergio Cao during an orientation with the NCPAG Executive Committee, faculty members, and student representatives.

Enrolment figures in the first semester for the BAPA program showed that there were 312 old students, 58 new students who passed the UPCAT, 11 entering with VAAS status, and 92 shiftees and transferees for a total of 473 BAPA student enrollees for the academic year.

The increase of the total enrolment for this year is largely attributed to the number of DPA students who have re-enrolled to work on their dissertations. This shift is a result of a more proactive and aggressive move by C-PAGE to follow up on its doctoral program candidates to fully comply with course requirements.

Center for Leadership, Citizenship and Democracy (CLCD)

PAMANA: The U.P. Anthology of Socio- Political Thought Since 1872 is a multi-disciplinary research project consisting of 21 volumes that contain the ideas and opinions of Filipinos concerning the nation, society, polity, economy, culture and national development. The project was initiated in 1993 with the complete editorial book plan in 1998, and is published by the University of the Philippines Press which has produced five books to date. In 2005, CLCD finished two additional volumes The Book on the War and the Japanese Occupation and the Book on Economic Developmentwhich will be released in 2006.

The Public Lecture Series on the Philippine Presidency and Administration started in 1992, at the end of the Aquino administration. The first volume was a self- assessment by the administration on its performance and achievements through its leadership and stewardship of the government after the 1986 Revolution, and its legacy to the nation and succeeding administrations. In 2005, the CLCD published Ramos Administration Alternative Assessment,

As a tribute to the great men of this country, CLCD launched the Book of Memoirs series to ascribe relevance and timelessness of their works featuring not only men in politics but those who exemplified true leadership in their own social sphere. Starting in 2005, the CLCD started to document the life of Dean Alfredo Juinio, who was the Dean of the Department of Civil Engineering, College of Engineering, University of the Philippines Diliman from 1970 to 1979.

The CLCD is the lead convenor of the comprehensive Electoral System Assessment Study under the UNDP programme on FDGP, which started in September 2005. The Center also heads the National and Local Leadership component of the Organizational Study of the COMELEC and its deputies. Under this programme, the CLCD is also undertaking the COMELEC Seminar-Workshop on Strategic Planning,

which aims to assist COMELEC in formulating its three-year Strategic Plan and Action Plans to be implemented by its offices at various levels.

Through the Seminar on Political Leadership at the Local Government Level, CLCD presented the results of the study of Dr. Perla Legaspi on Profiles of Political Leadership at the Local Government Level. The CLCD Research Report Series: Profiles of Political Leaders at the Local Government Level was produced as the manuscript on the Seminar and is the first CLCD Research Report Series. The papers presented by the reactors during a seminar held last 29 September 2005 at the Assembly Hall of NCPAG will be included.

Center for Local and Regional Governance (CLRG)

The Local Administration and Development Program (LADP), adjudged as an outstanding extension program of UP in 1983, is the longest running executive development program for local officials in the Philippines. Programs were also recently conducted on: Information Technology, Strategic Planning and Management, and Local Economic Promotion.

In 2005, CLRG hosted several international conferences and seminars on local and regional leadership. The International Conference on Decentralization focused on Decentralization and Urban Governance. The International Conference on Federalism and Multiculturalism (ICFM), a two- day conference, brought together federalism experts from Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, Micronesia, Spain, Switzerland and the Philippines, who presented papers and conducted workshops on the four themes of the conference: Conflict Management, Enhancement of Regional Economies,Constitution, Rule of Law and Human Rights and Transition to a Federal System.

The Seminar on Decentralization in East Asia and the Philippines served as the venue for the launching of the World Bank’s new book East Asia Decentralizes featuring papers presented by decentralization scholars from the Maxwell School of Syracuse University in New York, USA and the Center for Public Policy in Moscow, Russia.

The Center houses the Asian Resource Center for Decentralization (ARCD), which serves as an information hub for countries in the Asia-Pacific region, Europe and Africa on decentralization and local governance experiences that are constantly advanced through its network of public and private institutions and individuals. ARCD was launched during the 2 nd International Conference for Decentralization in 2002 and established though the assistance of UNDP, Asia PARAGON Regional Governance Programme, and the Office of Senator Aquilino Pimentel, Jr.

The Expanding Expertise Network for generating and sharing of knowledge related to Spatial Planning and Decision Support (ENSPADS) Project aims to strengthen the capacity of partner universities from different countries through collaborative development of course curriculum and teaching materials, staff exchange, conduct of try-out courses, and sharing of information and expertise through electronic blackboard and digital library on Spatial Planning and Decision Support Systems (SPDSS). This Project was developed through the support of the ASEAN-EU University Network Programme (AUNP) of the European Commission.

T he CLRG has been at the forefront of research, consulting services and facilitated learning on local autonomy and decentralization in the country since 1965. Emerging from the Local Government Center (LGC)

created through Republic Act 4223, CLRG has expanded its scope to include regional governance and urban and metropolitan management. Under the current leadership of Prof. Simeon A. Ilago, it collaborates with local and international institutions in promoting decentralization and publishing materials for the benefit of local government and regional units. CLRG also undertakes research and extension activities on management training; environmental management; population development and management; area-based planning; local

legislation; and barangay administration and development.

CLRG continuously works with regional leaders through different training sessions and workshops. Dubbed as the next step in poverty reduction in the different regions, the Capacity Building for Local Poverty Reduction Action Team (LPRAT) in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) aimed to build up local government capacity and was held in partnership with the British Council Manila and the Local Government Academy in coordination with the ARMM. The Workshop on Breaking a Common Ground for Visayas Development, on the other hand, was set to develop and advance a unified and comprehensive Visayas Islands Development Framework. Sponsored by the Population Services Pilipinas Inc. the Workshop on Gender and Development (GAD) was held to prepare GAD Agenda/Plans for Mandaue City, Cagayan de Oro City and Iligan City in 2005. With the favorable outcome of these workshops, the Workshop on Good Governance and Youth Leadership for Sangguniang Kabataan Leaders was held.

Also in 2005, CLRG was engaged in two major projects designed to increase local capacities. The Project on Developing Community Capacities for Pro-Poor Budgeting and the Local Government Accountability for Poverty Reduction, which is funded by the World Bank and implemented in ten pilot provinces by the CODE- NGO and its partner NGOs, documented the experiences, processes, gains, and lessons learned from this Project. Concluded in December 2005, the project Improving Delivery of Extension Services in the Philippines is an Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research-sponsored research project, jointly implemented with the Canberra-based Centre for International Economics. It aimed to define the respective roles of public and private extension services; to design an economic framework for financing, design and delivery; and to propose practical steps to adopting such framework in three provinces (Nueva Vizcaya, Leyte, and Southern Leyte), two cities (Tuguegarao and Santiago), and two municipalities (Claveria in Misamis Oriental and Infanta in Quezon).

Center for Policy and Executive Development (CPED)

Since 2004, the Center has conducted three batches of a weekly classroom lecture that forms the Academic Component of the Congressional Internship Program for Young Muslim Leaders being funded by the USAID-GEM. The weekly six- hour lecture, workshops, group presentations, and discussions cover courses on Public Policy Development, Analysis and Advocacy module, and on Policy Research in Support of Program and Project Development and Management. The participants are students from ARMM and other provinces of Mindanao.

In 2004, CPED was awarded a one-year contract by the DSWD to serve as the External NGO Monitor of KALAHI-CIDSS: KKB Project. The purpose of the External NGO Monitoring is to provide an independent source of qualitative information on KALAHI-CIDSS implementation from a selected number of project locations to complement the information on inputs and outputs collected through the Project’s management information system. CPED, through the appointed NGO monitors, was able to cover all the barangays in eleven recipient municipalities from eight provinces using a common set of instruments. It delivered monthly and quarterly monitoring reports integrating all the findings to the KALAHI-CIDSS: KKB National Project Director. The contract was funded by the World Bank and was completed in June 2005.

Another major project in 2005 is the UNDP Project for Rights-Based Approach (RBA) to Development wherein CPED has been commissioned to produce three major publications. One of these is the Sourcebook on Human Rights on the most recent and substantive published and unpublished literature on Human Rights and Rights- Based Approach. The Rights-Based Approach Orientation Training Manual Towards Mainstreaming Human Rights in the Development and Governance Processes and RBA Systems and Tools Manual are publications on implementing the RBA in the planning framework of the local governments, executive government agencies, and private entities. These publications will be distributed to all stakeholders in the implementation of the project nationwide.

Congressional Internship participants undergo several workshop and training sessions on policy development tools and techniques.

CPED, through Dr. Joel V. Mangahas, has also been engaged by the Asian Development Bank to develop a Process Map on the Anti-Money Laundering Regime in the country. The Process Map will essentially inform key stakeholders about how money laundering takes place; the regime’s vulnerable areas; the existing policy measures and institutional arrangements to address the issues; and the policy and institutional gaps.

Parallel to this, CPED has been engaged by the USAID through the Management Systems International to develop and conduct a Training Course for Compliance Officers of covered institutions in Anti- Money Laundering with focus on private banks. The training program’s main objective is to develop a sustainable course which will continue to be offered on a for-profit basis. The project is a collaborative effort of various institutions namely: UP NCPAG, UP College of Law, and UP College of Business Administration; Anti- Money Laundering Council (AMLAC) Secretariat; and, the Association of Bank Compliance Officers of the Philippines (ABCOMP).

CPED is also conducting the Executive Profiling Project to generate a database that provides a general profile of senior executives in key government agencies from 1986 to the present in terms of their educational, professional, and social backgrounds. The Project is funded by the Japanese Government through Kobe University.
