piaTAGBINA, Surigao del Sur, Oct. 27 (PIA) – The Department of Agrarian Reform - Municipal Agrarian Reform Office (DAR-MARO) of Tagbina, this province spearheaded the training on Conflict Management and Pertinent Agrarian Reform Laws held recently here. According to DAR Information Officer Myra Yu, the activity was aimed to strengthen the Barangay Agrarian Reform Committee (BARC) in the area.

Said activity was participated in by the representatives coming from the different sectors such as: landowners, farmer beneficiaries, indigenous peoples, non-government organizations, tenants, women organization and landless residents of the mentioned locality that comprised the newly re-organized BARC.

The participants were oriented on the function of BARC under Secs. 46 to 48 of Republic Act 6657 also known as the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Law.
