DA launches second agri and fisheries council conference
by Press release

The Regional Agricultural and Fishery Council Cordillera (RAFC-CAR) in partnership with the Department of Agriculture hosted the 2nd Cordillera Agriculture and Fisheries Council Summit (AFC) with the theme, “Championing agriculture Volunteers” on Oct. 22 to 24.

The event was attended by the AFC chairperson, coordinators, and sectoral representatives of the regional, provincial, city and municipal AFCs from Cordillera and Baguio City.

The activity recognized the AFCs’ exemplary performance and remarkable contributions in the discharge of their duties and responsibilities as volunteers in the AFC, bringing renewed inspiration and enthusiasm among current and former AFC volunteers and strengthened relations between the private and public sectors.

This year’s AFC summit aimed to reorient council members about the different programs and activities of the DA, including the eight paradigms of the Secretary to level up agriculture, the AFC manual of operations, and barangay-based participatory monitoring and evaluation; and enhance the awareness of the AFCs on gender and development and climate change.

“The AFC is the mechanism of the private and public sector partnership in the monitoring and implementing DA programs and projects at the provincial, municipal, and barangay levels. AFC officers and members should recommend better ways for the development of the projects, activities, and programs of DA” DA-CAR Director Cameron P. Odsey said.

Volunteers were advised to adhere to the AFC manual of operations as a beacon for a more guided action towards the monitoring and implementation of the different projects, programs, and activities of the DA.

Special Assistant to the Secretary for PCAF Affairs, Dr. Liza Battad, said the RAFC Cordillera is lucky for having all-out support in all its activities. In fact, Secretary William D. Dar has chosen Cordillera as his pet region for holistic development as the new member of the Cabinet Officer for Regional Development and Security.

The activity concluded with cleaning and ring weeding with the assistance of Community Environment and Natural Resources Baguio at Baguio Dairy Farm, Dontogan, Green Valley on the third day.
