Surigao Norte conducts consultation to mainstream provincial, regional development plan

SURIGAO CITY, May 27 (PIA) – The Province of Surigao del Norte through the Regional Development Council and members of the Regional Planning Committees will conduct a Provincial Consultation today at the Philippine Gateway Hotel, this city.

The consultation aims to promote wider ownership and ensure vertical alignment between the regional priorities and LGU’s concerns and to highlights the assessment, challenges/opportunities and strategic framework of the Regional Development Plan (RDP).

The five-year RDP (2011-2016) which was approved and adopted by the Regional Development Council (RDC) through resolution no. 23 series of 2010, is now on its third year of implementation.

In the past two years, the region has performed exceptionally well with a Gross Regional Domestic Product (GRDP) growth rate of 9.6% in 2011, the highest in the country.

However, human development remains a persistent challenge with poverty incidence among families hovering at 34% for the first semester in 2012. Thus, it is timely to asses and revised the plan to identify appropriate strategies which will strengthen the regions continued quest for development in the remaining three (3) years of the Aquino administration.
