Since the introduction by the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCAARRD) of the prestigious UGNAY Award in 1995, the Visayas Consortium for Agriculture and Resources Program (ViCARP) has always been in the top 5 of the 14 consortia in the country. It had won the UGNAY Award in 1997, 2003 and in 2008, in recognition of its outstanding management of agriculture and resources research and development in Eastern Visayas. The award carries a P1-million grant, a trophy and a plaque.f
ViCARP member agencies and administrators had also won the PANTAS Award Administrator (for outstanding performance in research administration), PANTAS Award-Researcher (for outstanding research outputs) and the TANGLAW Award (for outstanding research institutions).
ViCARP researchers had likewise won best paper awards, in both basic and applied categories and in the development category, given by PCAARRD every year during the National Symposium for Agriculture and Resources Research and Development (NSARRD).
Moreover, members of the applied communication group (the REACTF) had won the PCAARRD Professional Media Award (Broadcast Category).
Likewise, ViCARP researchers have been winning awards in regional, national and international research symposia and have published their research outputs in national and international refereed journals and have published books and S & T-based technical and semi-technical publications.
Lastly, ViCARP member agencies and researchers have made a difference in the lives of development stakeholders in the region by working closely with the LGUs, the NGOs and the private sector.
