LCP: SECURING THE FUTURE OF CITIES THROUGH POLICY ADVOCACY

Since 1988, LCP has relentlessly steered the direction of national and local policy discourse toward greater local governance, consistent with its vision to achieve genuine autonomy for local governments in the country. The League constantly takes a stance on pressing policy issues that affect city governments and their constituents, guided by a mission to secure the future of both through policy advocacy. Further, LCP ensures that city's united voices are heard by national authorities by reverberating them during legislative hearings in both Houses of Congress and other similar platforms. As of the latest, LCP is closely engaged in monitoring and promoting cities' welfare in different policy issues to include federalism, local fiscal autonomy, LGU conversion, and the review of the 1991 Local Government Code among others. Readers can obtain a more nuanced understanding of the cities' perspective in the mentioned areas, by browsing through the following position papers crafted by the League.
