POPCOM 10 will mentor the LGU of El Salvador on Population and Development (POPDEV) Integration. Meeting with the LGU regarding this was held last February 7, 2018, and both the planning office and the local chief executive expressed interest in this partnership. The Memorandum of Agreement between POPCOM-10 and the mentioned LGU was already signed by the heads of both parties. In relation to this project, it’s systems go for POPCOM but the LGU made an official request for deferment of the mentoring workshops and other activities until the end of the election period. The expected output of this project is an enhanced SEP and CDP for the LGU–with the integration of POPDEV indicators in the LGUs local development plan.
