As part of the advocacy in mainstreaming migration and development at the local level, the Commission on Filipinos Overseas, National Economic and Development Authority Region VI and Western Visayas League of Local Planning and Development Coordinators conducted a three day capacity building on M&D mainstreaming in select LGUs in the Province of Aklan. Data from the CFO shows that the top three municipalities with the most number of permanent migrants came from the municipalities of Kalibo, Banga and Numancia.

The training and strategic planning is part of the series of activities under the Migration and Development Initiative-Western Visayas, a project which is funded by the Swiss Development Cooperation and currently being implemented by the United Nations Development Programme.
