I. Accomplishments


A. Regional Development Planning

RDC XII reviewed and adopted the CY 2015  Regional Development Report (RDR),  an annual account of SOCCSKSARGEN  economic performance based on targets set in the updated Regional Development Plan (RDP), 2013-2016 and was subsequently distributed to the stakeholders.  The Council also adopted the CY 2015  quarterly  regional economic situationers (RES),  a rapid assessment of regional  quarterly economic performance based on key indicators on production, prices, employment, tourism, and peace and security.   The quarterly RES  identified critical incidents  that explained trends in the region’s economic performance and provided the regional   development outlook in the next six months.

RDC XII started the  formulation of the successor RDP, 2017-2022 in 2016 with the Council’s passage of  RDC XII Resolution No. 66, Series of 2016,  approving the guidelines for the formulation of the plan. The said guidelines were initially endorsed by the  RDC XII sectoral committees, which were  constituted during the last quarter of the year as the planning committees for the formulation of the plan.   The plan formulation  involved the assessment of the implementation of the RDP 2011-2016,  identification of  challenges that need to be addressed, formulation of  development strategies,   and identification of priority programs and project for implementation in the next planning period.

The Council also facilitated a regional consultation  on the Philippine Development Plan (PDP),  2017-2022  on November 25, 2016 to generate issues and concerns to be addressed,  both by the PDP and RDP.

During year, the Regional Land Use Committee (RLUC) XII, an affiliate committee of RDC XII tasked to address  land use–related  issues and concerns, conducted two (2) meetings, during which it reviewed and endorsed  the Regional Strategic  Development Framework (RSDF) XII, 2015-2045 to RDC XII which subsequently adopted the  document.
