DAR engages in quarterly assessment
Officials of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) have recently engaged a quarterly assessment and decided to set another target— which involves completing all Land Acquisition and Distribution (LAD) targets such as Certificate of Land Ownership Awards (CLOAs) consisting of 48,000 hectares (has) and subdivision of collective CLOAs totaling to 42,943 has.
This was agreed upon among DAR top officials, led by OIC Secretary Rosalina L. Bistoyong, with her undersecretaries, assistant secretaries, bureau directors, regional and provincial Directors.
“With concerted efforts and effective coordination, we will do and can do it”, said OIC Secretary Bistoyong.
With renewed commitments and bolstered faith, Bistoyong believes the DAR will now be “on its toes to fulfill its mandate to emancipate the farmers and empower them to become a new breed of small landowners capable of improving their welfare”.
Targets on support services consisting of farm organizational and continuing capacity development of beneficiaries, provision of capital through socialized credit and micro finance, transfer of technology, farm inputs and farm equipment distribution will be on high gear to make agrarian reform beneficiaries more productive in cultivating awarded lands.
