Bucloc local officials adopts ADSDPP



ucloc, Abra -- The newly elected local officials here adopted the Enhanced Ancestral Domain Sustainable Development and Protection Plan (ADSDPP) of the Masadiit Tribe of Bucloc last June 11, 2013. The adoption was held at the Lubuangen Hall in Lamao, Bucloc and became the central theme of the Sangguniang Bayan's first session.


Mayor Gody H. Cardenas, Vice Mayor Macbey L. Latawan, members of the Sangguniang Bayan, heads of offices, representatives from the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP), and Community Mobilization Officers from the Second Cordillera Highland Agricultural Resource Management Project (CHARMP2) participated during the ADSDPP Adoption.


"The [ADSDPP] adoption is actually the greatest milestone in the crafting of the ADSDPP," said Vice Mayor Macbey L. Latawan. "It is like crossing a vast sea of testing the truth and validity of information fed into the document, and then asking our local officials and heads of office to adopt the plans and programs that their offices had aimed to implement for the next five years."


Engr. Delfin Turqueza from the NCIP commended the members of the Community Working Group (CWG) and the Technical Working Group (TWG) for the level of workmaship that each had contributed to the crafting of the ADSDPP.


"The CWG and the TWG had indeed gone the extra mile in the creation of the [enhanced] ADSDPP of the Masadiit Tribe of Bucloc," said Engr. Turqueza. "We can even find here an illustrative presentation of the tribe's indigenous arts and crafts, clothing and personal adornments, and even culinary specialties. It even included reviews and abridged versions of the Masadiit mythology and folklores."


The ADSDPP Finalization was held last October with the staff from the NCIP and the Provincial Planning and Development Office (PPDO) of the Province of Abra on the lead.//
