Welcome to the League of Cities Policy Blog. This blog is being currently administered by the LCP policy department personnel. This blog is created with the aim of creating and generating genuine online discussion of viewpoints on some of the most critical issues affecting our Philippine cities today. We at the policy department solicit your important views on every matter discussed.

We believe that it is about time that Philippine cities take centerstage in the policy arena particularly at the national level. We need Philippine cities' voices to be heard. Our local government units, particularly the cities, have long faced unfunded mandates by the national government. It is high time to that cities take the forefront and become not just a significant, collective voice but a valiant guardian of local autonomy. We invite you to this blog and we look forward to your participation. Your comments, opinions, and suggestions are most welcome.
