60The Union of Local Authorities of the Philippines (ULAP), together with its partner Atikha, Inc. and the Provincial Government of Oriental Mindoro, conducted a Multistakeholders' Orientation in Oriental Mindoro province on March 6, 2015 for the project “Scaling Up Initiatives in Mobilizing Migrant Resources towards Agricultural Development". Various representatives from offices of the provincial government, NGOs, locally-based cooperatives, local colleges, and other sectors actively participated during the workshops and discussions.
Oriental Mindoro is one of the pilot sites of PinoyWise worldwide initiative on investments, savings, and entrepreneurship that ULAP implemented with Atikha in 2012. From 2015 onwards, the migration and development project will be scaled-up with the support of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), to concretely mainstream migration and development in the local development plans of the various local government units in the Philippines.
