A PIDS study found that participatory governance through the Local Housing Board (LHB) is still evolving. Many cities that have institutionalized their LHBs have not yet maximized the latter’s potential as a tool to increase community participation in housing delivery. Only the Quezon City LHB has effectively implemented participatory governance, which has led to a more acceptable socialized housing. The study recommends to strengthen the involvement of people’s organizations in the decision-making process, enhance community participation in the board selection, and improve transparency in the discussion of issues and decisions of the LHB.
