Contenets Messages Executive Summary About: SOCSKSARGEN ADPO SOCSKSARGEN Integrated Food Security Program • Farm-to-Market Roads • Agricultural Machineries, Equipment and Facilities • Extension Support, Education and Training (ESET) Cumulative Accomplishment, CYs 2003-2015 SAFDZ Map Updating Coordination and Monitoring of Key Transport Facilities in the Region Technical Support to Partner-agencies Program Management Financial Report Impact StoriesMessage from theChairman of the BoardSa ngalan ng Kagawaran ng Pagsasaka, ipinagmamalaki ko po ang pagtatapos noong 2015 ng ilang proyekto sa ilalim ng SOCSKSARGEN Integrated Food Security Program, na siyang nais ibahagi ng report na ito. Ako’y nagtitiwala na malaki ang magiging pakinabang ng mga proyektong ito – kabilang ang farm-to-market roads at iba pang rural infrastructure development initiatives – upang baguhin ang buhay ng mga kababayan natin sa rehiyon, lalung-lalo na ang direktang farmer-beneficiaries ng programa. Kaya naman, buong-puso akong nagpapasalamat sa mga miyembro ng SOCSKSARGEN Area Development Project Board (ADPB) at SOCSKSARGEN Technical at Project Monitoring Teams, gayundin sa Project Management Unit, sa kanilang masigasig na pagtutok sa mga proyekto. Nais ko ring bigyang-pugay ang mga katuwang nating ahensya ng gobyerno at ipa nating mga katuwang sa pagpapatupad nitong programa, kabilang ang mga magsasaka, mangingisda at kanilang local government units. Samantala, ikinalulugod ko ang pagkaka-apruba ng Department of Transportation and Communication sa P959-milyong pondo para sa pagsasaayos ng General Santos City International Airport, at ng Philippine Ports Authority at DOTC para sa pier at mga pangunahing kalsada sa rehiyon. Pabibilisin ng mga ito ang daloy ng mga produkto at serbisyo mula sa iba’t ibang sakahan at pangisdaan papunta sa merkado, na magiging daan para sa mas masiglang local export industries at mas mataas na kita sa kanayunan. Tunay ngang nasa agrikultura ang susi sa mas makahulugan at pangmatagalang kaunlaran at kapayapaan sa SOCSKSARGEN at iba pang bahagi ng Mindanao, alinsunod sa inclusive growth agenda ng Pangulong Benigno S. Aquino III. Kaya’t hangad ko ang ibayo pang pagtutulungan at pakikiisa ng lahat ng may-taya para sa higit pang tagumpay ng SOCSKSARGEN Integrated Food Security Program. Mabuhay! Sincerely, PROCESO J. ALCALA Secretary, Department of AgricultureA N N U A LR E P O R T2 0 1 53Message from theVice-ChairpersonAng SOCSKSARGEN Integrated Food Security Program ay isang mahalagang programa na kaakibat ng pamahalaang lokal sa pagpapaunlad ng mga imprastrakturang pang agrikultura at transportasyon. Pinahahalagahan ng programang ito ang maayos na makikipag-uganayan at pakikipagtulungan sa iba’t ibang Local Government Units (LGUs) at ahensya tulad ng DOTC, CAAP at PPA, at mga pribadong sektor upang bigyang pansin at solusyon sa lalong madaling panahon ang mga hinaharap na suliranin ng sektor ng agrikultura. Nitong taon ay maraming naipasang resolusyon ang SOCSKSARGEN Area Development Project (ADP) Board upang mapondohan at mapabilis ang pagsasa-ayos ng ating mga paliparan at pantalan. Labinlimang farm-tomarket roads din ang naidagdag ngayong taon, bagay na ikinasaya ng 16 Barangay LGUs at mahigit-kumulang 56,000 katao. Bilang bahagi ng SOCSKSARGEN ADP Board at namumuno sa probinsya ng Cotabato, prioridad natin ang mga imprastrakturang pang transportasyon. Mahalaga ang magandang kalsada sa pagsigla ng local na ekonomiya. Ang mabilis na pagluwas ng mga produkto mula sa mga liblib na lugar tungo sa pantalan at merkado ay nagbibigay sigla at ibayong sipag sa ating mga magsasaka na itaas pa ang kantidad ng mga produkto. Isinulong din ng Project Board ang hangarin nitong ipagpatuloy ang coordinative functions ng SOCSKSARGEN Area Development Project Office (ADPO) sa taong 2017-2022. Sinusuportahan natin ang epektibong mekanismo ng partnership ng gobyerno at pribadong sektor sa ilalim ng ADPO, na angkop sa maayos na pagpaplano at pagpapatupad ng ibat’ibang proyekto. Sa ating mga nagawa, nais ko pong pasalamatan ang lahat ng miyembro ng SOCSKSARGEN ADP Board at Project Management Unit, Department of Agriculture, mga LGUs at ibat’ibang ahensya ng gobyerno, pribadong sektor at mga organisasyon ng mga magsasaka na katuwang natin sa Programang ito, sa isa na namang matagumpay na taon. Mabuhay! Truly yours, EMMYLOU TALIÑO-MENDOZA Vice Chairman and Governor of Cotabato Province4SOCSKSARGEN AREA DEVELOPMENT PROJECT OFFICEMessage from theProject Manager Year 2015 was a tough and busy year with the simultaneous implementation of both current and continuing projects, and the various consultations and stakeholders meetings conducted for the anticipated development in key transport infrastructure region-wide. Time-bounded, we have to complete these projects and activities all at the same period. With the successful implementation of projects and activities this year, I would like to congratulate my staff at the Project Management Unit, the technical personnel from our partner-Local Government Units, national government agencies, non-government organizations and private sector for their untiring efforts and commitment which made us achieve our desired targets for the year. Moreso, the spirit of teamwork has remained demonstrated in our work, which made this year’s accomplishments even worth celebrating. I am also grateful to the continuous support and direction accorded by the SOCSKSARGEN Area Development Project (ADP) Board, spearheaded by Secretary Proceso J. Alcala of the Department of Agriculture. Through the resolutions endorsed by the ADP Board and its Executive Committee, the expansion and modernization program for the General Santos City Airport and Makar wharf amounting to PhP 959 M and PhP 603 M, respectively have been funded and fast-tracked. Furthermore, this 2015 we are fortunate to have the same budget as last year for SOCSKSARGEN Integrated Food Security Program, bringing additional infrastructure investments to the area which accumulated to PhP 922 M for the period 2011-2015. Likewise, our proposed budget for 2016 for the implementation of farmto-market roads and agricultural support facilities amounting to PhP 489 M was included in the General Appropriations Act, completing the PhP 1.4 B funds that the SOCSKSARGEN stakeholders have proposed for the 6-year period. All of these would not be possible if not for the proactive feat of our local government units and the support of the Regional Development Council XII. In the coming years, we remain optimistic for the sustainable growth of SOCSKSARGEN area as we bank on the continued support of the stakeholders in achieviing greater productivity and competitiveness. Maraming salamat at mabuhay! Sincerely, GINALYN FE C. CACHUELA Project Manager A N N U A LR E P O R T2 0 1 55Executive SummaryIn 2010, the construction and upgrading of farm-to-market roads (FMRs) was identified as an investment priority of the SOCSKSARGEN Area Development Project Office (ADPO) under its SOCSKSARGEN Integrated Food Security Program (IFSP). Investing in critical agricultural infrastructures such as the FMR is a strategy complementary to the other programs of the Department of Agriculture, which aim to raise farm productivity and competitiveness. If we may recall, only about 11% of the total road networks in SOCCSKSARGEN is paved, based on the data gathered from the partner – Local Government Units (LGUs, 2008-2010). Five years into the implementation of the SOCSKSARGEN IFSP under President Benigno C. Aquino Administration today, the SOCSKSARGEN ADPO has delivered 81% of its 5-year budget to building better roads in key production areas. This year, 86% of the approved allocation went to the concreting of 15 FMRs, 7% for the establishment of necessary postharvest facilities such as the abattoir, villagelevel feedmill and multi-purpose drying pavements in select barangays, and another 7% allocated for sustained coordinative functions of the agency in pursuit of the integrated development in SOCSKSARGEN. The overall physical accomplishment for CY 2015 was recorded at 78%, as FMR implementation progress and contracts set to expire mostly in the first semester of 2016. Consistent with the policy and advocacy under the IFSP, road designs were improved which took into consideration the pavement thickness, construction of drainage canals and slope protection that will keep our projects in good shape amidst the environmental threats. Likewise, geo-tagging is constantly applied in all project areas as a monitoring means and6commitment toward greater transparency. The year also marks the completion of processing and value-adding facilities that have long been awaited by our farmers in the countryside. Such facilities as the muscovado sugar mill, village-level feedmill and village-type coffee processing plant are seen to generate additional farm income, intensify crop production, and eventually bring progress to industrious and persevering farmer-associations in the years to come. Similarly, the field demonstrations on appropriate farm techniques and rice varietal trials have gained acceptance among local farmers as these have proven to increase productivity and reduce production cost. If maintained, this strategy will help the farmers generate sufficient income and sustain their livelihood even in the onslaught of climate change problems. Certainly, the agency pride itself on welldelivered programs and projects from 2003 (launching of SOCSKSARGEN IFSP) to present which covers the completion of agricultural projects, to wit: 260 kms road networks, rehabilitation of 34 irrigation facilities, establishment and provision of 96 agri-fishery postharvest and processing facilities and equipment, implementation of a regulatory-support project, and facilitation of extension-related services supportive to the initiatives of our partner LGUs. These infrastructure and support projects benefitted a number of LGUs, approximately 474,000 populace and 53 farmer-groups region-wide. Significant accomplishments also include growth in partnerships as collaborative efforts yielded positive results on the continued development of key transportation facilities in the region. The SOCSKSARGEN Area Development Project (ADP) Board, the General SantosSOCSKSARGEN AREA DEVELOPMENT PROJECT OFFICECity Airport Development Task Force, and the Makar Port Development Task Force – all multi-sectoral bodies, passed pertinent resolutions urging the upgrading of the region’s airport, sea port and road networks. Henceforth, the procurement of the GSC airport expansion project amounting to PhP 374 M was started and the initial modernization plan for the Makar Port facilities amounting to PhP 603 M was prioritized by the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) under its Medium Term Public Investment Plan. The Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) also provided PhP 20 M for the expansion of the Central Mindanao Airport (CMA) by about 39 hectares. The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), on the other hand, included in their 2017 Annual Investment Plan a budget of PhP 100 M for the construction of access road leading to the CMA. The preparation of a comprehensive rehabilitation plan for the GSC fish port, in consultation with the SOCSKSARGEN fishing federation, is also being developed under the Philippine Fisheries Development Authority (PFDA). Finally, the SOCSKSARGEN ADPO has renewed its commitment in fulfilling its mandate as stipulated in the Executive Order No. 16, Series of 2010. The preparation of plans and programs for CY 2016 had begun this year, in consultation with the Local Government Units, National Government Agencies, Business Sector and Civil Society Organizations. The CY 2016 SOCSKSARGEN Integrated Food Security Program, which includes the improvement of roads and transport facilities for greater mobility, and a climate change adaptation and mitigation strategy, is consistently attuned to the Philippine Development Plan on Competitive and Sustainable Agriculture and Fisheries Sector.About UsSOCSKSARGEN Area Development Project OfficePhoto: During the SOCSKSARGEN ADPO Board Meeting on December 15, 2015.The SOCSKSARGEN Area Development Project Office (ADPO) was established through the efforts and initiatives of the multisector stakeholders and Local Chief Executives of the region in 1991. It was coordinated by the Coordinating Council of the Philippine Assistance Program (CCPAP) and the Regional Development Council XI, when SOCSKSARGEN (South Cotabato/ Cotabato/ Sultan Kudarat/Sarangani/General Santos City), formerly known as SOCGEN (South Cotabato/General Santos City), was identified as one of the Area Development Zones (ADZ) that would potentially contribute in the pump-priming and the integration of the economies of Mindanao. From 1991 to 1999, the SOCSKSARGEN ADPO successfully facilitated the implementation of the largest single geographical concentration of infrastructural projects in the area, such as the construction of airport, fish port, sea port, road networks and installation of telecommunication system, funded through USAID,OECF, Italtel (and other foreign agencies) under the Mindanao Development Plan of the Philippine Assistance Program. The Office has been granted several term extensions by virtue of Executive Orders (EO) issued by the President, thereby expanding its coverage to include Sarangani, Sultan Kudarat and North Cotabato provinces. The latest Executive Order was signed by His Excellency Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III. The ADPO, through EO No. 16, Series of 2010 extended the coordinative and project management function of the office term until December 31, 2016, in view of the continuing need to fast-track the construction and upgrading of vital infrastructures (e.g. airport, sea port, road networks) and to sustain regional efforts, particularly in the implementation of food security and key development plans and programs in support to peace and development in Mindanao.
