The harsh environment of the Cordillera Region and the diverse agricultural constraints troubling the Cordillera farmers have prevailed in spite of the natural wealth and tremendous potentials of the Region. Recognizing therefore these constraints necessitates development strategies that are acceptable and appropriate to the capacities and needs of the people. Such programs should be geared towards increasing the capacities of the people to sustain, expand, improve, and diversify their mode of utilizing and exploiting their resources and socio-economic growth. At present, a number of private and government institutions/agencies have launched diverse R & D programs for the Cordillera. Moreover, these agencies have pooled their resources together and embarked on inter-agency collaborative ventures. Such ventures include technology generation, verification, and packaging; the establishment of demonstration farms; the conduct of training programs; and other outreach services. As a whole, development in the Cordillera should not mean the transformation of the Region into a wasteland of environmental degradation and socio-economic helplessness but the full realization of the potentials of the people of Cordillera for self-reliance and socio-economic prosperity.
