The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA)–CAR, with the assistance of the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) will conduct a two-day Communication and Advocacy Planning Seminar–Workshop on December 19-20, 2013 at Ating Tahanan, South Drive, Baguio City. Information officers from frontline agencies and provincial governments are expected to participate in the event.

The seminar–workshop will come up with a three-year Communication and Advocacy Plan (CAP) for the updated Regional Development Plan (RDP) 2014-2016 which shall integrate all development advocacies of partner agencies and local government units. It is expected that the three-year plan will also identify communication strategies appropriate to CAR’s unique socio-cultural environment. Moreover, the CAP will also identify milestone events aimed at ensuring that all stakeholders at the national, regional and local levels are properly informed of what the government is doing to address pervasive poverty and unemployment, among others.
