 Municipal Development Projects: Financing Local Development and Building Institutions
In the Philippines, all municipalities saw a decline in the share of own revenues against total revenues (resulting from an increase in revenue sharing after a 1991 change in government policy), but the shares of participant municipalities declined less sharply than those of nonparticipants.
Since property taxes constitute a large portion of own revenues, municipal performance in their collection was viewed in the OED study as an indicator of municipal effort to enhance autonomy and improve creditworthiness.
By 1995, when the MDP project was completed, the municipality had moved up to the second income class, the living standard of its 60,000 people had risen significantly, and municipal own revenues rose from 7 million to 25 million pesos.
