He also highlighted the integration of meaningful public participation and documentation of the process as an evaluation tool for accountability and priority consideration.

The workshop was marked with: reviewing submitted achievements against CIDP II programs and projects to identify gaps and variances; identifying significant achievements per department and overall observed result in each sector; identifying programs and projects implemented outside of CIDP II and evaluating their promotion of development stability; and identifying CIDP II programs and projects that need to be carried over to CIDP III after an analysis the suitability of its models and application techniques to the sector development.

It is an initial phase for the formulation of the subsequent CIDP (CIDP III) with the aim of diagnosing an objective measure of the executive operational devise of strategies and further providing a well-founded starting point in the formulation of a more refined new plan. #Winchit
