In her presentation, Ms. CJ Almodal, CC-EBPM Program Manager, discussed how the course puts emphasis on bridging the gap between theory and practice in policy-making.

As a member of the MSAC, the DAP Graduate School remains a strong partner of the DILG - IV A in its efforts to promote effective local governance in the CALABARZON Region.
