Course 1. Introduction to Data-Driven Policy Making_

This course has 5 short lectures.

Lecture 1: This lecture will discuss some fundamentals of data – why they are important, what they are used for, and the things we must remember when we handle and deploy data. These are basic concepts that will hopefully enrich our appreciation and understanding of data, and how they relate to things that matter to us.

Lecture 2: This discussion will introduce what data driven development (3D) is and the importance of data driven. The session will give some examples of 3D, the gaps in 3D and how we can bridge the gap. 

Lecture 3: The discussion will also provide an overview of the data that LGUs are required to collect under national policies. The discussion will provide a strategy on how to simplify data collection to meet the requirements for analysis and reporting. 

Lecture 4. This session will focus on 3D and Planning and Budgeting in LGUs. The session will cover 4 key aspects: Introduction to Planning and Budgeting and Data, Planning and Budgeting Process in LGUs, 3D Principles and Elements in Local Planning and Budgeting, and finally, an application workshop.   

Lecture 5. This session provides an overview of the Mandanas Garcia Ruling as a backdrop for data driven development at the local government level. The lecture discusses the challenges and opportunities of the Mandanas Ruling for LGU stakeholders.
