ALABEL, Sarangani (March 14, 2017) - The office of the Indigenous Peoples Mandatory Representative (IPMR) spearheads a two-day Strength Weaknesses Opportunities Threats (SWOT) analysis workshop for the proposed IP Development and Welfare Code facilitated by Board Member-IPMR Fulung Fredo Pandian Basino (standing) at the Provincial Kasfala Hall on March 9-10. The workshop was attended by representatives from the provincial and national department agencies, Sarangani Indigenous People Professionals Association (SIPPA), Provincial Tribal Council (PTC), and National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP). The objectives of the proposed IP Code are the following: to get standards set forth and enforced by a local government agency for the protection of the indigenous people and public safety; to systemically arrange a collection or compendium of laws, rules and regulations; the code will serve as a guide and inputs into the formulation of the LGU’s plans and programs including that of the national government agencies and the civil society groups and private sector. Board Member Basino had sponsored a resolution for the proposed IP Code in the Sangguniang Panlalawigan and approved last 2016. Basino said Sarangani would be the first to have an IP Code throughout the country. (Ener T. Toguin for SARANGANI INFORMATION OFFICE)
