6 Dinagat towns plan for development

Butuan City (31 March) -- Six (6) towns of the province of Dinagat Islands (PDI) has started to think for their comprehensive development through the Sectoral Planning Workshop that DILG-13 conducted recently at Balanghai hotel and convention center, Butuan city.

The municipalities of San Jose, Libjo and Loreto joined the planning workshop with funding from the Agencia Espanola de Cooperacion Internacional para el Desarollo (AECID) under the Strengthening Local Governments in the Philippines (SLGP) project.

The municipalities of Basilisa, Cagdianao and Dinagat on the other hand attended the activity with their own local funding on the request of the League of Local Planning and Development Coordinators of the Philippines (LLPDC) Dinagat Islands chapter while the municipality of Tubajon failed to attend due to financial constraints.

Participants to the workshop include the municipal budget and health officers; human resource management officers; social welfare and development officers; agriculturists; environment and natural resources officers; and local government operations officers.

The activity is one of the flagship programs of the SLGP that aims to develop capacities of the local government units (LGUs) in formulating the Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP) as required under RA 7160.

Lilibeth Famacion, asst. regional director of DILG-13 and Assistant PPDC Evelyn Cainglet of the province of Dinagat Islands were present to lend support to the activity and to encourage the towns to plan for their development and growth.

The activity is part of the series of workshops in the formulation of the Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP) with resource speakers from the technical staff of the DILG, DENR, EMB, and OCD.

The towns had already crafted their ecological profile on July 15-16, 2009, in Surigao City while the priority programs, projects and activities planning is set on April 26-27, 2010. (DILG-13/MACT III) [top]
