The project focuses on the value adding of coconut, abaca, cassava, and pineapple and will include the following components: 1) establishment of processing facilities; 2) institutional development and capability building 3) marketing assistance; and 4) project management and monitoring.

The project was designed to involve concerned attached agencies of DA like the Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA), the Fiber Industry Development Authority (FIDA) and the qualified LGUs, as implementing partners.

The DA through its Regional Field Unit No. XIII took the lead in the implementation of the project in the region with the overall supervision of the DA Central Office. (Karen Acero, surigaocity.gov.ph)
