Regional development planning was adopted by the government in 1967 as part of the national development planning process. This was intended to spread out sustained and equitable development beyond Metro Manila. The REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL (RDC) was created in September 1972 and organized in December 1972 in order to operationalize and coordinate this sub-national process. It is defined as a decentralized and participatory mechanism which can harness the efforts of LGUs, regional line agencies, NGOs, academe and legislators to jointly coordinate, implement and monitor development plans, programs and projects in the region.
