Last August 15, 2013, the DAR-CARAGA has distributed Certificate of Land Ownership Awards (CLOAs) covering 3,800 hectares to 1,789 farmers from one (1) City and nine (9) Municipalities of Agusan del Sur. The event was held in Prosperidad, Agusan del Sur.
DAR Undersecretary for Field Operations Office Jose Grageda led the distribution together with DAR CARAGA officials RD Faisar Mambuay and PARO Paysal Tumog, Board Member Nestor Corvera, and Prosperidad Mayor Albin Magdamit.
Undersecretary Grageda expressed continuity of services as mandated, despite the ongoing rationalization program of the Department. He said, "I call upon each beneficiaries to take the greater responsibility of making these lands productive.”
Moreover, RD Mambuay admitted that this distribution is one of the biggest in the last 5 years. "A proof of our continuing commitment," he said. RD Mambuay also added that more distribution efforts will follow as CARAGA has now accomplished 93% of its 9500 hectares annual target as of August 15, 2013.
