DAR top officials, led by OIC Secretary Rosalina L. Bistoyong with her able Undersecretaries, Assistant Secretaries, Bureau Directors, Regional and Provincial Directors vowed to complete all LAD or Land Acquisition and Distribution targets such as CLOAs or Certificate of Land Ownership Awards consisting of 48,000 hectares (has) and subdivision of Collective CLOAs totaling to 42,943 has.
“With concerted efforts and effective coordination, we will do and can do it”, says OIC Secretary Bistoyong, who rallied the DAR field implementers to concrete actions.
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.
Agrarian Justice on Wheels will start rolling at the community to declog and fast tract resolution of agrarian cases.
All these are important undertakings meant to stir DAR to a responsive agency of government, converging side by side with other CARP implementing agencies such as DA, DTI, DENR, DOJ and NHA to bring the farmers to a higher level of development.
