Ifugao agri, fishery body vying for most outstanding award
by PIA Ifugao

LAGAWE, Ifugao – The Ifugao Provincial Agriculture and Fishery Council (PAFC) won the 2017 Search for the Most Outstanding PAFC Award in the Cordillera in the Group or Institutional Category.

Cecil Guiniling of the Provincial Agriculture Environment and Natural Office (Paenro), PAFC focal person, said Ifugao bested Mountain Province in the competition.

With the award, Ifugao has earned the privilege to represent the Cordillera in the national search.

Ifugao will be vying for the national award along with Zambales and Misamis Oriental.  

A team from the national committee has started evalua-ting the three provincial contenders for the national PAFC title. The winner will be announced before the end of the year.

Guiniling said the Ifugao PAFC was organized in 1987 under the Bureau of Agricultural Extension and directly funded by the National Agriculture and Fishery Council. It was institutionalized in 2006 through Provincial Ordinance 2006-030 that also provided funds for its operation. 

It became a member of the Provincial Development Council in recognition of its contributions and involvement as a private sector partner in the development of agriculture and fishery in the province.

In nominating the Ifugao PAFC to the CAR Gawad Saka Search, Elsie Atolba, chairperson of the Rural Improvement Club   Women Sector of Baguinge in Kiangan, described the council as one that “has a sincere heart and untiring commitment to serve as a volunteer private partner possessing a strong bond of unity and dedication in the performance of their roles and function towards the fulfillment of their vision and mission for the general welfare of its members as personally witnessed and experienced by the organization.”

She added that the PAFC’s active involvement as a voluntary functional partner in the implementation of its programs and mandate paved the way for them to be recognized not only as an rural improvement club but also by other organizations.

The PAFC supported their organization by endorsing and getting fund support from the Department of Agrarian Reform for their Village Level Processing and Enhancement Project proposal. This resulted in the improvement of the organization’s Taro Processing Project, which is now marketed outside the province.

As a strong advocate of participatory good governance and an effective agent as the monitoring arm of the agriculture sector, the PAFC also endorsed the LEAD program, which supports cluster projects.
