22 Agencies Converge to Improve the Delivery

22 Agencies Converge to Improve the Delivery of Government Services Twenty-two (22) partner agencies, local government units, and representatives from the academe sector shared their plans and programs with the farmers during the Farmers and Inter-Agency Convergence Forum held at the Pavilion, Watergate, Butuan City on July 26, 2022.

The forum is a kick-off activity hosted by the National Irrigation Administration-Caraga to converge the agency’s plans and programs with the different agencies in order to harmonize the government’s goals and objectives that could effectively benefit the beneficiaries, particularly in the delivery of basic services.

Acting Regional Manager June Nathaniel S. Plaza, cited former President Rodrgio Roa Duterte’s assertion that agriculture is considered the backbone of the country’s economy. It forms the basis for food and nutrition security and provides raw materials for industrialization. These are the important factors that allow progress to take place in society. With that statement, it urges and challenges the agency to double its effort in focusing our attention on the farmers since they are our beneficiaries and the ones who belong to the agricultural sector.

At the end, the forum’s objectives to know and to update the agencies' plans and programs, roles and responsibilities of the different agencies, and gather communication from the agencies based on the farmers’ needs were attained, which made the convergence first meeting successful.
