The National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) Caraga region will launch Regional Geographic Information System (GIS) Center.

According to NEDA-Caraga regional director Carmencita S. Cochingco, as the socioeconomic planning agency of the region and the secretariat of the Regional Development Council (RDC), their office will spearhead the institutionalization of a geographic information system (GIS) in the region as support mechanism for effective planning and resource allocation and management, policy making, decision making, investment programming and monitoring and evaluation of socio-economic and environmental initiatives, programs and projects.

This initiative will strengthen further the linkage between the NEDA, regional line agencies, academe, local government units and other stakeholders through data/information exchange, RD Cochingco added.

The establishment was made possible through the assistance of Korea Overseas Volunteers (KOVs) and equipment support from the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA).

KOICA will provide funds for the procurement of a plotter, a large format scanner, global positioning system and a GIS software.

The launching is scheduled on March 22 at the regional office of NEDA-Caraga.
