14 out of 98 LGUs in region 02 passed the 2014 Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) assessment. These LGUs pass all the core assessment areas, namely Good Financial Housekeeping, Disaster Preparedness and Social Protection and at least one of the essential areas: Peace and Order, Environmental Management and Business Friendliness and Competitiveness.
“98 LGUs in the region accepted the challenge of raising the bar of local governance, however, only 14 LGUs made it. From SGLG assessment phase up to now, there has been a show of convergence of the public and private sectors, thus worthy to hold a gathering for our partners, the LGUs and the CSOs”, OIC RD Marlo Iringan emphasized in one of the conferences with the CSOs and Regional Team.
