DARA & LKWJ
The former Lembaga Kemajuan Pahang Tenggara (DARA) and Lembaga Kemajuan Wilayah Jengka (LKWJ) areas have been identified as one of ECER’s seven focus nodes.
The Dara and LKWJ consist of five areas namely Jerantut, Maran, Pekan, Rompin and Bera. The developments implemented in the five areas consist of infrastructure, upgrading and maintaining of community facilities, retaining cultural aesthetics of the villages and implementation of strategic projects.
Under a Special Fund established by the Federal Government in 2010, ECERDC is reviving the two areas with the objective of making the areas more conducive place to live. The development of the DARA and LKWJ has also been re-modeled for a better integration between the rural and urban areas in the ECER.
