This webinar features the PIDS-DILG study, “Assessment of the Performance Challenge Fund and the Seal of Good Local Governance: Perceptions from Municipalities”.

This study used the results of a nationwide survey of all municipalities in the Philippines that focused on the perceptions of the core members of the municipal planning team on the usefulness and importance of the Performance Challenge Fund (PCF). The survey showed that majority of the local government respondents appreciated the PCF and recognized its importance. However, it also revealed that about 20 percent of surveyed municipalities were never eligible to receive the PCF.

It also looked at how LGUs perceived the programs and found that majority, or 74 percent of the surveyed municipalities, affirmed that the criteria of Seal of Good Local Governance influenced the way local governments identify their vision, policy options, goals, objectives, and priorities in the comprehensive development plans.
