“My OneDA Family, hard work prays for continuity. But these remaining months, however uncertain they seem, can still be guided by science and skill,” Agriculture Secretary William Dar said during the opening of the Department of Agriculture (DA) Management Committee (ManCom) Meeting held on November 23-25, 2021.

The heads and planning officers of the DA units nationwide gathered at the Philippine Rice Research Institute to discuss and evaluate the continuing delivery of the key strategies under the OneDA Reform Agenda in Transforming Philippine Agriculture.

Secretary Dar challenged the ManCom members to be “clutch players” who must deliver the strategies with the adept combination of speed and precision amid a changing landscape of needs including climate change adaptation, growing global population, and environmental hazards.

“Increasing unpredictability should be the impetus for us to sharpen our methods. I pray we never lose our fervor for the long run, even if we are no longer in the privileged position of leadership,” the agri chief added. (Photo by Adones Buhayan, DA-AFID)
