New leadership: will they address poverty at its roots?
Could the change in leadership mean poverty in the country will finally be
addressed at its roots?
Intersect, the quarterly magazine of the John J. Carroll Institute on Church
and Social Issues (JJCICSI) in its post-election issue titled Directions,
anyone?, discusses how the change in leadership will affect poverty
alleviation measures, particularly at the local level.
Articles such as: What Can Our New Leaders Do to Alleviate Poverty?, tackles
how newly elected candidates can sponsor laws and policies to help the
poor; Pushing Local Governments to Work for the Urban Poor, features how
local government units have complied with the implementation of the Local
Government Code and the Urban Development and Housing Act; and Knocking on
the Mayors Door, which shows us through the case of Davao City, how a city
can prioritize its constituents needs.
