A situation analysis was conducted recently with key stakeholders and partners in the implementation of the Carabao-based Business Improvement Network (CBIN) and Coconut-Carabao Development Project (CCDP) in Regions 11 and 12.
The “Planning-Workshop on Knowledge Management Interventions for CBIN/CCDP Projects”, facilitated by the DA-PCC’s Knowledge Management Division, was initially conducted for the project sites covered by DA-PCC at Central Luzon State University (DA-PCC at CLSU), DA-PCC at West Visayas State University (DA-PCC at WVSU), DA-PCC at Visayas State University (DA-PCC at VSU), and DA-PCC at University of Southern Mindanao (DA-PCC at USM).
For Regions 11 and 12, among the issues consolidated during the workshop were the standardization of products and Dairy Boxes, provision of post-harvest equipment, continuous upgrading of carabaos that were dispersed for the project, and database management.
During the activity, the agency’s partners expressed their full support to the project by ensuring that the recipients will faithfully and diligently do their part in the contract.
In response, director Benjamin John Basilio of DA-PCC at USM said DA-PCC will continue to serve as a channel of blessing to industry partners and stakeholders in Mindanao. He then presented an overview of the developments that have happened since the establishment of the project.
All the attendees pledged their commitment of support for the intervention at the conclusion of the activity. The CBIN project is funded by the Office of the Senate Committee on Agriculture and Food chaired by Senator Cynthia Villar. The same funding support is given to the CCDP in partnership with the DA-Philippine Coconut Authority.
