WHEREAS, Section 2 of Executive Order No. 302 provides for the transfer of the KSDA to the appropriate unit within the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) and which shall be under the supervision of the President of the Philippines.

WHEREAS, the KSDA and the Provincial Government of Kalinga-Apayao have almost identical objectives that of hastening the growth and development of an area in Kalinga-Apayao; enabling its inhabitants to participate more actively in the national development efforts; and coordinating with other government agencies, departments and instrumentalities in the implementation of comprehensive development programs, projects and activities in the area.

WHEREAS, the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) has adopted a policy of transferring the responsibility for over-all coordination, direction, and supervision of single province integrated area development (IAD) projects to the respective Provincial Governments per NEDA Resolution No. 68-88.

WHEREAS, the functions of KSDA are in fact inherently vested in the reorganized Provincial Development Council (PDC).

WHEREAS, there is an urgent need to place the KSDA under the supervision and control of the Provincial Government of Kalinga-Apayao to enable the two offices to undertake an integrated approach and direction towards the development of Kalinga-Apayao.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, CORAZON C. AQUINO, President of the Philippines, by virtue of the powers vested in me by law, do hereby order:
