DRR/CCA – Enhanced PDPFP


The formulation of the Provincial Development and Physical Framework Plan (PDPFP) is anchored on the NEDA-DILG-DBM-DOF Joint Memorandum Circular No. 1, series of 2007. The JMC set the Guidelines on the Harmonization of Local Planning, Investment Programming, Revenue Administration, Budgeting and Expenditure Management. Furthermore, Section 3.7 of the JMC prescribes that the PDPFP “merges the traditionally separate provincial framework plan and provincial development plan to address the disconnect between spatial and sectoral factors and between medium- and long-term concerns.”

To carry out the requirements of Republic Act No. 10121 of 2010, Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation (DRR/CCA) is mainstreamed in the DRR/CCA enhanced-PDPFP as policy formulation, socio-economic development planning.

The DRR/CCA-enhanced PDPFP of Cotabato Province is a six-year medium-term development plan, guided by a long-term vision. It is intended to coincide with two three-year political terms of the Governor, and can be aligned with a full term of national leadership. Planning analyses, however, extended beyond the medium-term to consider longer-term trends. These are necessary inputs to the identification of strategies and PPAs for the six-year plan period. Kidapawan City and the 17 municipalities served as the major level of analytical disaggregation. The planning environment considers all major sectors relevant to the development of the province which revolves around the following core elements: population, economic activity, physical resources, income/access to services and land use.
