Surigao Norte begins an agri-fisheries grassroots program
BUTUAN CITY, PHILIPPINES – The signing of a memorandum of agreement (MOA) has formally kicked off the implementation of the Provincial Agriculture and Fisheries Extension System (PAFES) in Surigao del Norte, according to the Department of Agriculture (DA) 13 (Caraga).
The DA-13 said in a statement that the MOA signing on Tuesday at the provincial Capitol by Governor Francisco Matugas and DA-13 Director Ricardo Oate Jr. signaled the start of agricultural interventions at the grassroots level while strengthening collaboration between the DA and local government units, academia, and the private sector.
“The PAFES is one of 18 main strategies within the consolidation pillar of the agency’s One-DA Reform Agenda to change Philippine agriculture,” according to the DA-13.
PAFES-Caraga focal person Edelmira Luminarias noted in the same release that Surigao del Norte is the second province in the region to execute the program, following Agusan del Norte, which is the Caraga pilot area.
“With the MOA signed, the DA-13 and the provincial government of Surigao del Norte, in collaboration with the academe and other private-sector stakeholders, will begin working on the Collaborated Provincial and Fisheries Extension Program to develop plans and programs for the years 2023 and 2024 for inclusion in the DA’s regular banner programs,” Luminarias said.
Matugas thanked the DA-13’s continuous support for the province’s agriculture and fishery sectors during the signing of the MOA.
“The agriculture and fishery stakeholders in Surigao del Norte can expect greater services now that PAFES has been established,” he stated.
