The Institute of Environmental Governance Program or IEG is the strategic response to the ever-increasing demand for capacity building of LGUs. The Program caters to two levels. Level One (I) shall be designed to serve the needs of Barangay Officials and Level Two (II) shall cater to the needs of Municipal, City and Provincial Officials. Both levels will be housed in partner Academic Institutions.
A Local State College or University shall host the IEG Level One in strategic areas, while a University shall host IEG Level Two for each Philippine island group (Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao). Each area-based IEG shall be managed autonomously under a joint management scheme between the host institution and Tanggol Kalikasan.
The Institute is fully accredited by the Department of Interior and Local Government Local Government Academy (DILG-LGA).
To foster stewardship and shared responsibility, the Program requires counterpart from the participant LGUs in the form of their transportation, food and accommodation expenses during the training.
