Normin RSC, RCSDG tackles results matrices, SDGs, statistical dev't activities

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (PIA)--Members of the Regional Statistics Committee (RSC)-10 and Regional Committee on Sustainable Development Goals (RCSDG) convened in a joint meeting, June 13, to discuss the validation of the northern Mindanao Results Matrices for 2023–2028 and SDG core indicators and be updated on the latest statistical activities in the region.

RSC Chairperson and National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA)-10 Regional Director Mylah Faye Aurora Cariño underscored the importance of harmonizing the indicators to better measure the performance of the region in implementing every chapter of the Regional Development Plan.

She stressed that the RDP is a document that has a results orientation, with the Results Matrices as one of its companion documents.

The joint meeting of the two special committees of the Regional Development Council (RDC)-10 also highlighted the reconvening of the Regional Census Coordinating Board for the conduct of the 2022 Census of Agriculture and Fisheries (CAF).

Discussed were the coordination mechanisms needed to be put in place for the conduct of CAF and the assistance that will be requested from different government agencies.

Dr. Janith Aves, officer-in-charge of the Philippine Statistics Authority-10, said the CAF is a large-scale government undertaking geared towards the collection and compilation of basic information on the agricultural and fishery sectors of the country.

She said the 2022 CAF will be the 7th of the series of decennial agricultural censuses and the 6th of the series of decennial censuses of fisheries in the country.

The attendees were also updated on the results of the 2018–2022 Physical Flow Accounts of Water Resources in the region, the observance of National Statistics Month this October, and the status of the Community-Based Monitoring System (CBMS) rollout in the five provinces of the region.

CBMS is an organized technology-based system for collecting, processing, and validating disaggregated data, for use in planning, budgeting, program implementation, and impact monitoring at the local level.

Another highlight of the meeting was the creation of a Technical Working Group for Map Boundary Concerns to facilitate the smooth conduct of statistical activities in areas with boundary issues. (APB/PIA-10)
