The Local Governance Regional Resource Center VI has been established to become a dynamic, interactive and virtual one-stop shop for knowledge on local governance. Its primary role is to source, organize, and manage available local governance knowledge and promote its sharing and use by various stakeholders.
The facility leverages ICT tools and various techniques for capturing, creating, and sharing knowledge to promote knowledge sharing for local governance excellence. It is also a mechanism for convergence of local capacity building and knowledge initiatives and also acts as a broker for collaboration and knowledge sharing between stakeholders.
In July 2005, with support from the Philippines-Canada Local Government Support Program (LGSP), 7 DILG Regional Offices enrolled as one of the “pilot” Regional Local Governance Resource Centers (LGRRC) under the program of the Department of the Interior and Local Government-Local Government Academy. These regions were 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and 10. On October 14 of the same year, Region VI was the first to launch its LGRRC in conjunction with the 14th anniversary of the Local Government Code of 1991
Primarily, LGRRC VI was established in Western Visayas to promote a culture of learning and knowledge-sharing in pursuit of sustainable development through excellence in local governance and to support DILG in its role as an enabler for capacity development of LGUs. It is also designed to support the DILG Regional Office to carry out its responsibility of strengthening both the management and technical competencies of local officials and technical staff by providing LGU access to a wealth of knowledge. It is the repository of knowledge products and DILG with its regional partners shall build from it to achieve a continuing process of local governance knowledge creation, sharing, utilization and review.
