DA-10 monitors progress of funded programs

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (PIA)--The Department of Agriculture-Regional Field Office (DA-RFO)-10 and the Regional Agricultural and Fishery Council (RAFC) conducted an exit conference for the joint Philippine Council for Agriculture and Fisheries (PCAF) and AFCs to monitor and track the progress of DA-funded programs and projects, September 1, here.

Said conference aims to enhance transparency, accountability, and efficiency in the implementation of various agricultural and fisheries projects funded by DA.

The provincial AFCs of Lanao del Norte, Misamis Occidental, Bukidnon, and Misamis Oriental presented their respective updates.

DA-10 Regional Executive Director Carlene C. Collado emphasized the significance of the participatory approach in promoting inclusivity and empowering local communities.

"The joint effort between PCAF and AFCs has allowed us to gather valuable insights directly from the communities that are benefiting from our programs. Feedback enables us [in the agency] to make informed decisions and adjustments to better serve the needs of our farmers and fisherfolk in Northern Mindanao," said Collado.

During the conference, participants reviewed the outcomes of the participatory monitoring process, which involves engaging local communities and stakeholders in assessing the impact and effectiveness of DA-funded initiatives.

This is to ensure that the interventions provided are aligned with the needs and priorities of the target agri-fishery communities.

The body further agreed that DA must revalidate the projects monitored, particularly those with issues and concerns that need to be addressed.

Present during the activity are Cyril L. Soliaban, officer-in-charge, deputy executive director of PCAF, RAFC 10 chair Nilda B. Salas and staff, DA-10 officials and program staff, and other AFCs across NorMin. (DA-10/PIA-10)
