The Office of Planning and Development was created to help the CNMI plan for a sustainable future. Since its creation in 2017 under Public Law 20-20, OPD and the Planning Development Advisory Council (PDAC) have worked to bring public and private sector entities together in the creation of a Comprehensive Sustainable Development Plan (CSDP) for our islands.
Planning for a sustainable future means taking many factors into account that affect the well-being of the CNMI’s people, environment, and economy. To do this, OPD is focusing on three key questions:
According to OPD Director Kodep Ogumoro-Uludong, “Part of OPD’s mission is to allow our people a voice and a platform where they can provide input on what they feel is important in planning for today and for future generations. The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically altered both the present and the future of the CNMI, and now, more than ever, is the time to get involved.”
As a community member, there are a number of ways to get involved and make your voice heard.
