Strategic Location

Davao Region is composed of Davao City and the four provinces of Davao Oriental, Compostela Valley, Davao del Norte, and Davao del Sur with a total land area of about 19,672 square kilometers. The Region has 11 congressional districts, 43 municipalities and 1,158 barangays. Aside from the chartered city of Davao, it has four component cities as follows: Digos City in Davao del Sur; and Panabo City, Tagum City and the Island Garden City of Samal in Davao del Norte. Davao Region envisions itself as the country’s Most Livable Region. From this vision will emerge a community that is home to all peoples, creeds, and persuasions; plentiful in economic opportunities; responsive in its delivery of basic services; and ever mindful of its legacy to those who will inherit its future. Nurtured by this vision, Davao Region's human resource will thus rise to the constant challenge of a lead role in national development. DOST has regional offices as its implementing arm nationwide which carry out the laws, rules and regulation, policies, plans, programs and projects of DOST; provide effective and efficient S&T services to the people in the area; and coordinate with other government agencies and with local government units in the region on S&T matters. Projects and services are implemented through technology transfer and commercializing; information dissemination; testing, analysis, and consultancy services; training, promotion and education.
