Tuguegarao City - With its goal to empower local communities through sustained Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) in Cagayan, the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Region 02 under its Community Empowerment thru Science and Technology (CEST) Program inked a partnership with the Philippine National Police (PNP) Regional Office 02 thru Cagayan Police Provincial Office (CPPO) in support to Executive Order No. 70.

EO No. 70 states to ‘institutionalize 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 frame work.’


Started last June 2021 and will end in July 2022, the project titled “Empowering Local Communities thru Sustained S&T Innovation Strategies in Cagayan” aims to provide appropriate S&T interventions in selected conflict-affected areas and vulnerable communities of Cagayan.


About 56 households from Sitio Lagum, Sto Niño, Cagayan will benefit from the project by providing P300,000 worth of solar panels as an alternative to kerosene. 

Sitio Lagum is one of the beneficiaries of Phase I Water System Project, Science & Technology Academic Research-based Openly Operated KioskS (STARBOOKS), and DOH sponsored medical health kits under the CEST Program.
