To preserve its cultural uniqueness and to fortify its ethnic solidarity. the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) was carved out of the predominantly Ilocano Regions of Ilocos and Cagayan Valley. Located in the North Central portion of Luzon., the region is composed of six provinces namely Abra, Apayao, Benguet, Ifugao, Kalinga and Mountain Province and the chartered city of Baguio. It is further subdivided into 76 municipalities and 1,172 barangays. It is composed of provinces which used to be part of the Old Mountain Province
The region's land area of 1,829,368 hectares accounts for 6.1 percent of the total land mass of the Philippines. As of 1997, the region has a total of 340,656 hectares of Alienable and Disposable Land and 1,488,712 hectares of Total Forest Land
Dubbed as the "Watershed Cradle of the Philippines", the Cordillera has a mountainous topography characterized by towering peaks, plateaus and intermittent patches of valleys. Almost 71 percent of the region's land area has slopes of 30 percent and above.
Cordillera is endowed with the abundant mineral reserves. These are metallic ores such as gold copper, silver, zinc, and non-metallic minerals like sand, gravel and sulfur. Mineral reserves are found in Abra, Benguet, Kalinga, Apayao and Mt. Province. However, mining operations are still concentrated in Benguet where almost 100 percent of the region's mineral production in 1997 was registered.
The region is the least populated region in the country despite its vast land area. The total population in 1990 was 1,146,191 and grew to 1,254,838 in 1995 reflecting an average annual growth of 1.71%. Agriculture remains to be the the primary preoccupation which employs more than half of the regions workforce. Industry, which accounts for 61.0 percent of the region's total economy, registered a single-digit growth of 7.6 percent. With this, the overall economy of CAR managed to grow by 4.9 percent in 1998.
