RD Adorable, in his message, is hopeful for a collective and harmonious resolution of conflicts with partner agencies specially now with the Joint Operating Manual as basis on agreements and commitments.

The Joint Operating Manual of JAO No. 01, s. 2012 will serve as the foundation of institutional arrangements between the Agencies in resolving overlapping jurisdictions while staying committed to protect and conserve the rights of everyone, particularly the Indigenous Peoples.
