We are currently conducting a study on the assessment of the LGUs’ readiness for the implementation of the Supreme Court Mandanas Ruling. 

We would like to request from PIDS as copy of the dataset of their project with DILG, entitled “Baseline Study on Policy and Governance Gaps for the LGSF-AM Program”. 

The said dataset would surely serve as valuable input to our study.

Thank you.
