Revisiting the Devolution of ENR Functions


  • Senate Economic Planning Office SEPO

However, the implementation of these functions was considered partial, insignificant and with limited success due to issues on Local Government Units (LGU’s) lack of technical capacity and manpower, overlapping mandates, and poor community involvement.
