Gender and Development
The GAD Plan was formulated in pursuant to and in accordance with the Republic Act No. 9710 or the Magna Carta of Women, within the context of the agency's mandate. The GAD plan responds to the gender gaps or issues faced by the agency's clients and stakeholders, as well as its women and men employees. The development of the GAD plan was guided by the DBM, NEDA and NCRFW Joint Circular No. 2004-1.

In 1996, the Philippine Plan for Gender Responsive Development 1995-2025 was adopted through Executive Order 273 which required that all government agencies, departments, bureaus, offices and instrumentality's, including government-owned and controlled corporations at the national and local levels are directed to incorporate GAD concerns in their annual budget proposals.

The agency continuously generates reports on sex-disaggregated data in its personnel statistics, training and IEC activities. It also integrates GAD to different training programs to provide employees with GAD concepts.


Vision
To create a gender responsive agency that promotes equal opportunities for all in fulfilling NAMRIA’s vision of being a Center of Excellence, building a geospatially empowered Philippines by 2020.
Mission
To provide maps, charts, and other geospatial products and services through gender-responsive programs and projects within a gender-fair environment.
Objectives
GAD's main objective is to integrate GAD concerns to its programs, projects and activities in order to respond on gender gaps and issues faced by the agency's clients and stakeholders, as well as its women and men employees. Specifically, it aims to:

  • Provide child support mechanism to NAMRIA employees with young children;

  • Provide information on GAD concepts; and

The Focal Person oversees GAD plans and budgets, projects, and activities; mobilizes the GFPS Committees; and represents NAMRIA in the Department of Environment and Natural Resources GFPS and interagency meetings.
