DAR holds national assessment and planning conference


The Department of Agrarian Reform Central Office will conduct National Assessment and Planning Conference on January 24-27, 2012 at Stotsenberg Hotel, Clark, Angeles City, Pampanga. This activity will be participated in by the Regional Directors, Assistant Regional Directors and the Provincial Agrarian Reform Officers. Before the conduct of the Planning Conference, an assessment of the CY 2011 Accomplishments by regions will be undertaken to set the directions for CARP in CY 2012. Also, during this activity, the performance of DAR IX officials including the provincial officials will be rated based on the performance contracts agreed with the DAR Secretary at the beginning of the year.

Each region will be assessed according to its accomplishments on Land Acquisition and Distribution (LAD), Program Beneficiaries Development (PBD) and Agrarian Justice Delivery (AJD). From 1972 up to the present, DAR Region IX has distributed a total of 217,502 hectares or 86.7% of its 247,174 hectares total CARP scope. The distributed lands are benefiting a total of 116,098 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs). For the current year, a total of 8,634 hectares of land will be distributed to the identified ARBs. The region will still have a balance of 29,672 hectares to be distributed until 2014. For the PBD component, DAR IX has a total of 150 Agrarian Reform Communities (ARCs) launched and assisted which have 436 People’s Organizations (POs)/cooperatives with 78,767 ARBs. The region provided physical infrastructure projects like farm-to-market roads, irrigation facilities, bridges, post harvest facilities and multi-purpose centers amounting to Php 259,619 million. These projects were funded both by the local and foreign funding agencies. In the delivery of agrarian justice, the region was able to resolve a total of 1,888 cases and mediated 1,995 cases on agrarian disputes.

During the planning phase of this conference, the different regions and provinces will be grouped according to the magnitude of LAD balance. Group I is categorized as the top 38 provinces nationwide with high Land Tenure Improvement (LTI) balances. Group II category comprises the 48 provinces with medium to low LTI balance. In Region IX, Zamboanga Sibugay is one of the provinces identified as part of the top 38 provinces. To date, the province has a total balance of 7,484 hectares for distribution.

The conference will provide an avenue for DAR to discuss with other CARP implementing agencies: Land Registration Authority (LRA), Registry of Deeds (ROD), Land Management Services-Department of Environment and Natural Resources (LMS-DENR) and Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP) for the smooth implementation of the land tenure improvement component of CARP. The support services group will discuss with the Department of Agriculture (DA), Sugar Regulatory Authority (SRA), Commission on Higher Education (CHED), Technical Education Skills Authority (TESDA) and LBP.

The Regional Strategic Plan for CY 2012 will likewise be discussed. In addition, important matters affecting CARP implementation such as Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) proposals and foreign-assisted projects (FAPs) data will also be tackled.

There will also be a discussion on the administrative concerns, a presentation of the Operational Directives of LTI and PBD and the Secretary’s Marching Orders for 2012.
