Participated in by experts and industry representatives in the agri-fishery sector, the activity sought to come up with a supplemental guide that will aid BAR in prioritizing and evaluating R&D proposals in the next medium term, taking into consideration their contribution to the attainment of the Department of Agriculture (DA)’s objectives of making food available and affordable, increasing the income of farmers and fisherfolk, and increasing resilience to climate change risks. Additionally, it aimed to enhance the overall implementation of the RDEAP and the measures for which it will be assessed and evaluated in the future.
