The Department of Agriculture-Philippine Rural Development Project (DA-PRDP) achieved another milestone as the project received an overall satisfactory rating for its project development objectives, which was presented by the World Bank during the 12th Implementation Support Mission (ISM) to the DA-PRDP wrap-up meeting held earlier today, June 10, 2021.

During the virtual wrap-up meeting, World Bank Task Team Leader Eli Weiss presented the rating to the DA-PRDP, which was received by the DA-PRDP team headed by National Project Director Undersecretary Ariel T. Cayanan, together with Deputy Project Director Shandy M. Hubilla.

In his opening message, Usec. Cayanan lauded the whole of the DA-PRDP for its relentless dedication in improving its processes and implementation of programs and services for its intended beneficiaries.

“Committed to our vocation, this mission is truly the epitome of our service to operationalize a local-level convergence platform among stakeholders, to synergize DA programs and projects, and to facilitate the implementation of more relevant interventions that shall benefit a bigger segment of farmers and fishers, ushering them towards inclusive growth,” Usec. Cayanan said.

Likewise, World Bank Agriculture Practice Manager of World Bank East Asia and Pacific Region Dina Umali-Deiningner congratulated the DA-PRDP for being a role when it comes to capacity building.

“On the PRDP, we really cannot thank you enough – Usec. Ariel and the whole team – for really, the steady progress and implementation that has been achieved, especially in all parts of the Project. I think PRDP is always the role model that we talk about,” Ms. Umali-Deiningner expressed.

Present during the virtual wrap-up meeting are representatives from the World Bank, European Union, DA-PRDP National Project Coordination Office (NPCO), Project Support Offices (PSOs), and Regional Project Coordination Offices (RPCOs). ### (DA-PRDP)
