Local Governance Regional Resource Center - Cordillera Administrative Region (LGRRC-CAR) was initially established on October 2009 during the leadership of former Regional Director Patrick D. Onus and Assistant Regional Director Robert P. Mangangey, Sr. Towards this development, the LGRRC-CAR was created to: 1) promote a culture of learning and knowledge-sharing in pursuit of sustainable development through excellence in local governance; 2) support DILG-CAR in its role as a primary catalyst for excellence in local governance; 3) harness the role of DILG-CAR as knowledge brokers and facilitators of capacity development in local governance in the Cordillera Administrative Region; 4) facilitate the integration of knowledge management in DILG-CAR processes and systems towards building the Department as a Knowledge-Centric Organization; 5) be a dynamic, interactive and virtual program; 6) contribute to building the Department of the Interior Local Government-Cordillera Administrative Region as a knowledge-centric organization or KCO; 7) build learning communities that pursue local governance excellence through knowledge sharing and innovation.
