NEDA cuts P3 M in autonomy IEC fund
by PIO release

The budget for the continuing information and education campaign for autonomy in the Cordillera has been reduced by P3 million.

This year, the National Economic Development Authority only allotted P12M, from the previous P15M budget given to the Cordillera Regional Development Council, since IEC for autonomy began.

NEDA-CAR Director and RDC Vice Chair Milagros Rimando said the reduction was primarily due to the alleged unused funds in the previous years, aside from failure of some agencies to liquidate funds downloaded to them.

Rimando reported the matter to the agency’s information and education campaign (IEC) and alliance building partners during their annual conference in San Fernando City, La Union on Dec. 28-29, 2017.

She assured the reduction will not weaken the campaign for autonomy. She said the RDC will instead prioritize grassroots information and education.

“The slight reduction will not affect the gains that the region has achieved with regards the clamor for autonomy over the past 10 years.

She said government agencies, local governments and accredited civil society organizations are still required to submit their proposals for information education campaign, alliance building and project monitoring and evaluation.

The 1987 Constitution provides for the establishment of autonomous regions in Muslim Mindanao and the Cordillera.
