CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – The Department of Agriculture-10 (DA-10), through Regional Executive Director Carlene Collado, signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in support of the Enhanced Partnership Against Hunger and Poverty (EPAHP) in Northern Mindanao at the agency compound here on January 4, 2022.

Said signing forms part of the MOU made and entered by other different national government agencies in the region, held earlier on December 7, last year.

The collaborative efforts of the EPAHP partners are eyed to strengthen the synergy and convergence among EPAHP partners in engaging the urban and rural communities to enhance social capital and optimize economic resource base through feeding programs, food production, and livelihood programs and essential support services.

As committed by the agency, DA-10 shall provide agri-fishery inputs and services, and extend capacity building and organizational strengthening assistance.

It will also aid in pooling resources for the production, processing, and postharvest facilities of agricultural produce, and facilitate access to credit from microfinance and other credit institutions to farmers and fisherfolk, and community-based organizations.

Witnessing the signing are Regional Technical Director for Operations Carlota Madriaga, Special Area for Agricultural Development Focal Person Lana Racines, and Karl Owen Sayson, EPAHP Operations Monitoring Officer. (DA-10)
