Looking at Local Government Resilience through Network Data Envelopment Analysis
Domingo, Sonny N.; Manejar, Arvie Joy A. | July 2020
The study looked into the resilience of provincial governance in the Philippines to disaster risk using World Bank (WB) socio-economic resiliency estimates and cross-sectional data generated by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) and the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) during the period 2012-2013. Treating provincial governments as decision making units (DMUs) with bureaucratic sub-units at the provincial and city/municipal levels, composite efficiency scores were generated using an integrated Data Envelopment Approach. A World Bank generated socio-economic resiliency scorecard at the provincial level provided comparative output references for the model. It was empirically shown that disaster risk reduction and management inputs at the provincial and sub-province levels greatly contribute to improving socio-economic capacity and decreasing asset risk. However, DMU efficiency scores varied across the different sub-regional domains. A majority of provincial subDMUs also got higher efficiency ratings compared to their municipal/community subDMU counterparts, implying the need to rebalance support and disaster resilience -related initiatives at the sub-provincial levels.
