The Central Luzon Agriculture, Aquatic and Resources Research and Development Consortium or CLAARRDEC is a conglomeration of 26 agencies and institutions within Central Luzon conducting or promoting research and development in agriculture, forestry and natural resources which have been grouped to work together along specific objectives, share expertise and resources and complement each other to push further the horizon of R & D in the region.

Mandate

In coordination with the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCARRD) and the Regional Development Council (RDC) of Central Luzon, CLARRDEC is mandated to review ad update R & D efforts in relation to regional needs in agriculture, fisheries, forestry and natural resources. It is tasked to prepare, monitor and assess the implementation of research and development programs/projects/activities in Region III. It is also mandated to help facilitate the development of capabilities of its member-agencies.

Vision

CLARRDEC as a model consortium dedicated to excellence in research and development, technology management, capability upgrading and resource generation for sustainable development and global competitiveness.

Major Objective

To develop strategies and implement a responsive system of research and extension management for accelerating and sustaining regional development goal with the end in view of maximizing the generation, verification, dissemination, exchange of information and utilization of research results.

On November 1972, the Department of Science and Technology or DOST established the Philippine Council for Agricultural Research or PCAR which gave hope for the agriculture, forestry and fisheries sectors of the country.

Four years after the creation of PCAR, the Central Luzon Agriculture Research Complex or CLARC was born. Later, with the inclusion of natural resources and development concerns in its mandate, the CLARC became CLARRDEC or Central Luzon Agriculture and Resources Research and Development Consortium. However, the Aquatic sector was then included in 2015 that made C-L-A-A-R-R-D-E-C as we knew today.

Through the years, the Central Luzon State University has been priviledged to be the home of the Central Luzon Agriculture, Aquatic and Resources Research and Development Consortium or CLAARRDEC evolving and spearheading the partnership and collaboration among member-institution for research and development.

The consortium is currently composed of Twenty-two implementing agencies, including 8 State Universities and Colleges, 7 Provincial and Local Government Units and 8 coordinating agencies. All seven State Universities and Colleges in the region are conducting Research and Development Programs and Projects based on the priority commodity assignments; Research and Development facilities, technical expertise, current needs and problem in the region.

The consortium is also the homeof the three national Research and Development agencies such as Philippine Rice Research Institute or PhilRice, Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization or PhilMech and Philippine Carabao Center or PCC.The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources or BFAR and Freshwater Aquaculture are also part of the consortium.

The consortium mobilized and organized functional and operational groups through the four technical working groups composed of Regional Research and Development Group or RRDG, Regional Techno-transfer and Promotion Group or RTTPG, Regional Knowledge Management Group or KMG and Gender and Development Group or GAD.

Each Research and Development institution has their own agency mandate that governs commodity technology generation, verification, dissemination and ultimately commercialization. The generated technologies of CLAARRDEC member-institutions must be disseminated and commercialized to reach target users and provide vibrant solutions to catch-up with ASEAN neighbors and become globally competitive.

The CLAARRDEC Core Group has four working groups, namely: the Research and Development Cluster (RDC), Knowledge Management Cluster (KMC), Gender and Development Cluster (GADC) and Technology Transfer Cluster (TTC).

The Research and Development Cluster Coordinator(RDCC) shall be selected from any CMI who shall be recommended by the RRDCC to the host institution and designated by he host institution as an adjunct coordinator if the personnel will from other CMI.

The cluster coordinator will be part of the science and technology program of the host institution.

The Knowledge Management Cluster Coordinator(KMCC) shall be selected from any CMI who shall be recommended by the RRDCC to the host institution and designtaed by the host institution as an adjunct coordinator if the personnel will be from other CMI. The cluster coordinator will be par of the science and technology program of the host institution.

The Gender and Development Cluster Coordinator(GADCC) shall be selected from any CMI who shall be recommended by the RRDCC to the host institution and designated by the host institution as an adjunct coordinator if the personnel will be from other CMI. The cluster coordinator will be par of the science and technology program of the host institution.
