RDC adopts road map to achieving reg’l autonomy
by PIO release

The Cordillera Regional Development Council adopted a regional road map for Cordillera autonomy before the projected transition towards a federal system of government being espoused by the Duterte administration.

The RDC said that the Cordillera autonomy road map 2017-2019 evolved from various consultations conducted by the RDC with its advisory committee, executive committee, the Social Preparation of CAR into an Autonomous Region (SPCAR), local government units, civil society organizations, Cordillera Association of Regional Executives, and other sectoral groups.

Among the strategies adopted by the RDC is the projected increase in the awareness of Cordillerans on the region’s renewed pursuit year so that the election of the officials of the regional government will be done simultaneous with the May 2019 midterm elections.

The RDC enhanced its information and education campaign (IEC) materials for autonomy from 54 percent in 2015 to 76 percent in 2017, increased support of the Cordillerans for autonomy from only 26 percent in 2015 to 62 percent this year, reduced proportion of undecided Cordillerans from 54 percent in 2015 to 24 percent this year, pursue the enactment of the proposed autonomy law anytime this year, and subsequently schedule the plebiscite anytime and engaged various stakeholders in the quest for autonomy, specifically the barangay officials, indigenous peoples mandatory representatives, government agencies, senior citizens, farmers, cooperatives, religious sectors among others.

The RDC increased the frequency of grassroots information and education campaign in the different batches of priority municipalities to reach out to more Cordillerans for them to understand the essence of autonomy.

The region’s policy-making body chaired by Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan said that the Cordillera Regional Development Plan since 2006 has regional autonomy as its overarching goal to which development efforts and imperatives shall be directed and the RDC, through the SPCAR program, has since then implemented IECs, capability-building and alliance building projects and activities to increase awareness of the people on autonomy, and strengthen the support network for its pursuit for Cordillera self-determination.
