The coastal and riverine communities of the South are progressively realizing wellbeing


The coastal and riverine communities of the South connect themselves externally, capitalize on their potentials and conquer their livelihood challenges in the climate change context.


CODEC’s future Goals and purposes are centered on four pillars, which will provide relevance to the people it has been working for, reflects the current development context, based on its resources and potentials, and ensures sustainability of its operations in the long-run.


  • 1: CODEC continues to be a leader in the coastal and riverine area in setting development agenda and priorities in diversified areas of development (CODEC Leads!).
  • 2: CODEC sustainably strengthens its position as a lead development service provider on contract basis for all intermediary development partners/sponsors with access to development funding (CODEC Delivers!)
  • 3: CODEC emerges as a social entrepreneurship to maximize the use of its financial and physical resources to gradually increase its support for social sector programs (CODEC Earns!).
  • 4: CODEC continues to expand its innovation in microfinance services and stabilize its profitability over time (CODEC Sustains!)
