Panibagong Paraan 2008 invites ideas for projects that help improve citizen's  quality of life through effective local governance.  Proposed projects
 should build and utilize multi-stakeholder partnerships to:

Proposed projects may focus on overall governance or sectoral governance
concerns.  Projects should fall under any of the following project categories:

 Governance and Administration

 Economic Development
 Environmental Management
 Disaster Risk Reduction and Rehabilitation
 Special Category:  Population and Development.  Proposals should demonstrate  local application of the link between population dynamics (fertility,
 mortality and migration) and development concerns.  Projects should show how LGUs
 and other sectors in the community  work together to address population and  development  issues, or how the local government structure, processes
 and service channels  are harnessed for effective planning and
 implementation of a population management program.

To ensure the sustainability of initiatives, the project proposal may
 focus on, or integrate an advocacy component for the development of ordinances/
 laws or policies at the local or national level that will improve local governance.
