NEDA-7 approves 3 projects for KR2-PEP funding

By Minerva BC Newman

Cebu, Philippines (1 March) -- The Oversight committee of the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) has already approved three (3) projects for funding under the NEDA-KR2 Productivity Enhancement Program or (PEP).

In an updated report of the Social Development Committee, it said that the three approved projects were Bayawan City's "Development of Agricultural Sustainability Initiatives for Growth (DASIG)" project; Tuburan's "Provision of Water Pump Facilities for Irrigation and Flood Mitigation" project; and Alicia, Bohol's "Balancing Forest Management and Livelihood Needs: A Community-based and Family-Approach Replanting" Project or the BAFOMA-LINE project.

According to Boy Tagalog, SDC secretary, the DASIG project of Bayawan City has become a showcase on agricultural sustainability. It has been visited by national and local monitoring staff and other groups that are interested to perhaps replicate the project in their areas.

It was learned from the monitoring visit that Bayawan City has conducted a massive four-month training and research on organic farming. The participants upon their return to Bayawan immediately tried and applied that they learned from the training.

Today, Bayawan City showcases its organic products through agricultural fair and educational tour on its sustainable organic farming.

The second approved project is that of Tuburan which Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) is being set for signing soon while the latest approved project is that of Alicia, Bohol—a community-based and family approached tree planting project.

As soon as funding will be ready for release, the MOA signing between NEDA-7 and LGU of Alicia will also be undertaken.

According to the SDC briefer, NEDA-7 has one more pending proposal with the NEDA-CO Oversight committee—the Bais City's Aquasilvi Culture and Mangrove Reforestation Project. It is for further review and evaluation.

NEDA-7 is awaiting advice from its central office for the possibility of extending the project this year. (PIA-Cebu) [top]
