Organizational Chart


It involves the preparation, updating, or revision of DRR-CCA Enhanced PDPFP, PDIP, and AIP.

It involves the generation, processing, storage, and retrieval of sectoral planning information. Through the conduct of continuing studies and research, this office builds up new information for planning and programming. Feedback information collected through monitoring and evaluation of the impacts of the program and project implementation constitutes a major component of the planning database.

This involves culling out programs and projects that have local ownership and accountability from among the several sectoral plans of the DRR-CCA Enhanced PDPFP in order to incorporate them into the three-year PDIP and the AIP. The local Sanggunian can then implement the necessary procedures to draw private investment into the area.

This entails drafting resolutions, setting agendas, maintaining minutes and records, and handling other related matters connected to the Provincial Development Council’s activities (PDC).
