The government will push for a stronger collaboration among national agencies, local government units, and community organizations as a means of converging and localizing poverty reduction programs. By June 2012, alongside the preparation of the 2013 national budget, at least 300 city or municipal local poverty reduction action plans will be developed and priority poverty reduction programs identified. These projects will be given serious consideration by national government agencies in crafting the 2013 national budget.
