Dinagat Islands town boosts local tourism amid pandemic

BUTUAN CITY, March 9 (PIA) -- Amid travel restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, the town of Libjo in Dinagat Islands continues to welcome local tourists from the province to showcase its breathtaking tourist sites.

What was once known mostly for its watermelons, the humble town of Libjo is now famous for its “Sea of Clouds,” where a thick fog covers the entire town.

“This is a new discovery, just last year. [The view can be seen] on top of a mountain. If the weather is hot in the daytime, a fog will appear,” said Libjo town mayor Lamberto Llamera, Jr. in an interview with Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Sec. Martin Andanar for the Network Briefing News episode on Friday, March 5.

The mountain is located at Brgy. General Aguinaldo, where tourists camp to witness the view. Clouds blanket the whole of Libjo as early as 2 in the morning.

Mayor Llamera said its discovery was 'just in time,' as it offered great relaxation for both the locals and tourists from the province especially at the time where inter-province travel is still impossible due to strict travel protocols.

“Many from Dinagat Islands visit [the tourist site] because it’s hard to travel to neighboring provinces without having to undergo quarantine. So we just stay here and look for places to go.”

Meanwhile, travel protocols within the province remained strict even for residents bound for their hometowns in Dinagat Islands. According to the mayor, the provincial Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) is still convening to come up with harmonized guidelines on receiving passengers.

“It was discussed during the initial meeting that all passengers who are going home will stay in San Jose [municipality] to be screened. It was also proposed that passenger boats bound for Loreto and Tubajon will dock here. But these are all just plans. We are still finalizing it,” the town mayor added. (DMNR/PIA-Caraga)

Dinagat Islands town foster agri growth amid trade restrictions

By Doreen Marielle N. Rosales

BUTUAN CITY, March 9 (PIA) -- While the heightened community quarantine restrictions hampered economic activity in all parts of the country, the Libjo town continued to supply fresh produce to different parts of the Dinagat Islands.

Known for its sweet watermelons, the Libjo municipality prides itself as a top producer of the said not just in the province but also in other parts of the country, expanding its market as far as Bohol, Cebu, Tacloban and parts of Southern Leyte.

Town mayor Lamberto Llamera, Jr. said that while it was unfortunate that exporting produce was momentarily stopped due to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, watermelon production was still maintained.

"At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, our watermelon planters could not deliver to Cebu and Bohol. So what we did, we continued to supply municipalities. The local government unit helped in providing mobility, using our trucks as delivery vehicles," he said to the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Sec. Martin Andanar during his guesting at the Network Briefing News on Friday, March 5.

The municipality of Libjo also boasts its rice production. To support local farmers, the municipal government immediately made interventions.

"When there were restrictions placed, we could not sell our produce to other towns; it so happened that we needed to feed our front liners and those in quarantine, so we bought 2,500 bags of rice which we gave to our frontline workers as well as those in quarantine. In this way, we are also helping local farmers maintain their livelihood."

Meanwhile, efforts to boost the locality's agriculture sector are now taken to greater heights with the establishment of an agriculture center in the town. This is to capacitate local farmers by introducing them to new farming technologies.

"We have started on the training center for farmers because the governor [Arlene J. Bag-ao] said that all we've learned on planting palay, cassava, and raising livestock, will be replicated by farmers in other areas in Libjo."

A 5-hectare lot was alloted to be used as demo farms for different planting technologies. (DMNR/PIA-Caraga)

By Doreen Marielle N. Rosales

BUTUAN CITY, March 9 (PIA) -- With the vaccine rollout for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) now commenced in some parts of Caraga region, other parts of the region are also preparing to conduct the rollout in their locality, including the town of Libjo in the Dinagat Islands province.

On top of the list of preparations is boosting public confidence in the vaccines.

“On Thursday [March 4], we have begun our information drive for the vaccination. We will visit every barangay in town to explain the importance of the COVID-19 vaccines,” said Town Mayor Lamberto Llamera, Jr. to Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Sec. Martin Andanar during his guesting at the Network Briefing News on Friday, March 5.

The town mayor recounted that residents have been hesitant to get vaccinated due to the controversies on the Dengvaxia vaccines in 2016, which was linked to the deaths of at least nine children in 2016 and left at least 40 others severely ill in the first year of its rollout.

The mayor also said that if permitted by authorities, he will have himself inoculated during the initial rollout “to convince people to get vaccinated.”

Meanwhile, the master list of prioritized vaccine recipients is also being finalized, according to the mayor.

“Our allocation is small so we really prioritize the most important [recipient] to get vaccinated. First to get vaccinated is our frontline workers then our senior citizens.” (DMNR/PIA-Caraga)

Caraganons join virtual Women’s Summit in celebration of IWD 2021

BUTUAN CITY, March 9 (PIA) -- In time with the celebration of the International Women’s Day on March 8, 2021, the women and men in Caraga region from the different sectors have actively participated in the virtual Women’s Summit initiated by the Regional Development Council - Regional Gender and Development Committee (RDC-RGADC) Caraga through the Gender and Women Economic Empowerment (Gender WEE) Subcommittee.

During said summit, the RDC-RGADC highlighted the following activities: Awarding of the Outstanding Women Entrepreneurs; Recognition of retired GAD focals; posting of the #ChooseToChallenge Campaign and One Billion Rising Video; Lectures on Government Services; and Online Legal Counselling.

As the keynote speaker of the Women’s Summit, Dr. Evelyn Fetalvero, regional director of the Department of Education (DepEd) Caraga, stressed that women also face the pandemic of violence against women and children apart from the present pandemic on COVID-19, which is an equally alarming reality.

“However, women are able to manage these as the government is here working with us, but the fight against this pandemic does not end here. Men and women should work hand-in-hand to achieve equality and discard social and cultural differences for all of us to overcome all these challenges and trials,” Fetalvero elaborated.

Assistant regional director Gay Tidalgo of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)-Caraga also emphasized that women are taking the steps and continue to contribute to the nation’s development. “Today, we will be witnessing effective women and women leaders to inspire us through their milestones, who experienced hardships before they were able to achieve the success they have right now. Today, we recognize the women entrepreneurs, as well as our GAD focal persons who constantly promote the welfare of our women,” she cited.

The retiring women-GAD focal persons from the different government agencies were recognized during the summit. Four of them came from the regional offices of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), Department of Tourism (DOT), Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), and Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) Caraga.

GAD focal person and assistant regional director Sally Joy Bungabong of CDA-Caraga shared her message to all the participants of said event. She underscored that being an advocate of gender equality and women empowerment does not end when one is retiring.

“Once an advocate, always an advocate. I may be retiring from government service, but I will continue to be an advocate for women’s rights. I also congratulate all the other women who will be retiring from government service. Thank you all for the time and opportunity we had worked together in this cause,” she said.

The RDC-RGADC also recognized successful women entrepreneurs from the provinces of Agusan del Norte, Agusan del Sur, Surigao del Norte, Surigao del Sur, and Dinagat Island.

International Women's Day (IWD) every March 8 is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality. IWD has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not a country, group, or organization specific. (JPG/PIA-Caraga)

DSWD-13 intensifies promotion of 4Ps' FDS alternatives

BUTUAN CITY, March 9 -- Though the conduct of the Family Development Sessions (FDS) has been suspended since 2020, the provision of timely and relevant information to the beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) continues to reach the beneficiaries through the promotion of various FDS delivery modes.

Based on the new 4Ps Operations Manual, FDS refers to appropriate monthly activities conducted with and attended by the grantee/s or responsible persons towards enhancing their parenting capabilities, thereby encouraging them to be more active citizens of the society.

The three FDS modes are online, offline, and on-air. The first mode utilizes the use of social media platforms such as Facebook, and Messenger, where the staff may share or post a topic, and the beneficiaries may access it individually in the comfort of their homes. The second mode is offline, considering that not all beneficiaries have social media accounts and no Internet access.

“The basa-pasa or wall-dikit is intended for beneficiaries with no social media accounts, no email, no cellphones, and no access to any radio or television stations. The FDS materials are handed to the beneficiaries by the 4Ps field workers. This is to ensure the compliance of the beneficiaries in one of the Program’s conditions,” Analiza Navia, regional FDS focal, said.

This is in line with the DSWD National Advisory Council Resolution #3 series of 2020 or the “Conditions for Entitlement to Cash Grants of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program Beneficiaries during the New Normal/COVID-19 Pandemic.”

The printed materials are posted in strategic locations in each area, wherein the parent leaders are mobilized to help in the dissemination of the FDS topic for the month. After handing the materials, the beneficiaries are required to submit their journal, and requested to sign the attendance sheet.

The third mode is FDS on-air and/or live streaming. Tapping local partnerships with radio and television stations are done for the dissemination of FDS topics. Through this, the topics are discussed over radio and/or TV to reach not just the beneficiaries, but also the general public as well.

In the absence of the approved guidance notes from the National Program Management Office, the Regional Program Management Office of 4Ps Caraga has crafted the Regional Interim Guidance Notes to serve as the basis in conducting the monthly learning sessions abiding with the minimum safety measures and community quarantine protocols.
