THE GAWAD GALING POOK

THE GAWAD GALING POOK

OVERVIEW:

The Gantimpalang Panglingkod Pook or Gawad Galing Pook was launched in October 21, 1993 as the pioneering awards program on innovation and excellence in local governance.

It was a joint initiative of the Department of Interior and Local Government (through its Local Government Academy), the Ford Foundation, and other individual local governance advocates from the academe, civil society, and government. The Asian Institute of Management anchored the program until the Galing Pook Foundation was established in 1998 and a new Foundation Secretariat took over in 2001.

A total of 215 local governance programs were awarded in the annual search for outstanding and trailblazing local governance programs from 1994 to 2005.

The winners of the Gawad Galing Pook are chosen every year from a national search of local governance programs sifted though a multi-level rigorous screening process based on the criteria of positive socio-economic and environmental impact, promotion of people’s empowerment, transferability and sustainability, efficiency of program service delivery, and creative use of powers provided by the Local Government Code and other decentralization and local autonomy policies.


AWARD CATEGORIES:

Outstanding Local Governance Programs and Trailblazing Programs:
The Outstanding Local Governance Program Award is given to each of the top ten (10) program winners while the Trailblazing Program Award is given to each of the next ten (10) programs finalists.
