Executive Order 70

"LAKE DIOMABOC: A Glimpse of Tourism Development thru EO 70"
by: Jan Michael Belena

Executive Order No. 70

or better known as Institutionalizing The Whole-Of-Nation Approach in Attaining Inclusive and Sustainable Peace, Creating a National Task Force to end Local Communist Armed Conflict, and Directing the Adoption of a National Peace Framework jumped its implementation in Barangay New Taokanga in the Municipality of Manay. After its postponement last March 20-21 due to tropical depression Chedeng the event was finally settled last April 4-5 at Barangay New Taokanga, Municipality of Manay. This project was headed by the Provincial Governor Nelson Dayanghirang with the Project Manager Sir Ednar Dayanghirang and was supported by the Local Government Unit of Manay thru Mayor Antero L. Dayanghirang Jr. and participated by various National, Provincial and Municipal Government Agencies especially the PNP and the Philippine Army. The Whole-Of-Nation approach was an exact opposite of the NLD Caravan done by the Provincial Government in which they gave assistance directly to the beneficiaries. Here, there was an in-depth diagnosis of the problems, issues and concern by the community thru the different offices concerned from soft projects such lack of trainings to hard projects such as roads and other infrastructures. The approach also aimed to address the root causes of insurgencies, internal disturbances, tensions and other armed conflicts and threats by prioritizing and harmonizing the delivery of basic services and social development packages in conflict-affected areas and vulnerable communities (1). As one of the results, the provincial and municipal governments eyed for boosting Tourism developments in the area especially Lake Diomaboc in order to create more jobs in the area and also to hit the major objective of the Duterte Administration towards ending communism. The stunning 15 hectares of inland water body, Lake Diomaboc made its mark as it went from a Regional awardee to a National Finalist to the prestigious Most Cleanest and Greenest Inland Bodies of Water in the Philippines in 2002-2004. Set also in a high elevation, it was also considered as the biggest lake in the province and the mirror to the highest peak of Davao Oriental, Mt. Kampalili. With the future developments, the Office of the Barangay New Taokanga thru Punong Barangay Mariano Bayacag was thankful to the different agencies. Sir Ednar Dayanghirang also cited that Barangay New Taokanga was the first to implement the EO 70.
