Special PCSD Meeting Held

Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Arsenio M. Balisacan chaired the Philippine Council for Sustainable Development (PCSD) 2012 special meeting last November 27 at NEDA-sa-Makati.

Discussed and approved during the meeting was the proposed formulation of the Philippine Sustainable Development Action Plan 2013-2022, the country’s response to Rio+20 Summit commitments. The Plan aims to mainstream sustainable development (SD) in the country’s national, regional, and local planning, policy formulation and program development. The PCSD intends to commence its activities to formulate action plan this month, and come out with a final Philippine SD Action Plan by yearend of 2013.

Also discussed were the Philippine Post-2015 development agenda: The Future We Want, the country’s successor agenda to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) after 2015; and the proposed 2013-2014 PCSD activities. Present during the meeting were the PCSD core members, the committee/subcommittee representatives, advisors, the coordinating secretariat, other officials, and the NEDA interstaff support group.
