The Office of the Provincial Agriculturist in South Cotabato and Sultan Kudarat presented their proposals for the priority interventions of the Collaborative Provincial Agriculture and Fisheries Program (CPAFEP) today, October 26, 2023. The presentation was held at the Director's Office of ATI-RTC XII in Brgy. San Felipe, Tantangan, South Cotabato.

To support the activities under the strategic support services of CPAFEP, the Department of Agriculture-National Rice Program (DA-NRP) and ATI-RTC XII are providing their full support. The agency is expected to provide annual co-financing to the operation of the program, and this fund shall be given to the Provincial Local Government Units (PLGU) based on their submitted proposals of priority interventions.

The implementation of the funded interventions is expected to enable the PLGUs to assume the developed Agriculture and Fisheries Extension (AFE) functions and services. This will help prepare them to take on their roles in the agriculture and fisheries sector.
