In his opening message, he reiterated that the RCPD is the first of the three phases of the SONA Campaign Plan and that inputs of the sectoral participants are vital in crafting the Peace and Development Agenda that shall be used as reference for the formulation of policy recommendations to address the gaps in governance.

In conclusion, DILG Undersecretary Epimaco V. Densing III, who also joined thru Zoom platform, gave his closing remarks quoting that – insurgency is not a sole responsibility of the government, rather a shared responsibility of the whole nation.
