CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) in Region 10 recently initiated the creation of a Convergence Project Management Team (CPMT) for Task Force Bangon Marawi to address the immediate concern of reconstruction, rebuilding and improving the lives of the survivors and victims of the Marawi siege.
DAR-10 Regional Director Faisar Mambuay said the CPMT is composed of government line agencies, non-government organizations, the United Nation-World Food Project (UN-WFP) and United Nation-Food and Agriculture Organization (UN-FAO).Mambuay added that the CPMT will be spearheaded by DAR and the Department Agriculture (DA).
“The CPMT will assist President Rodrigo Duterte’s Task Force Bangon Marawi in rebuilding the lives of the Marawi people. We at the DAR will do our best to help our farmer-beneficiaries regain their lives through our support services,” he pointed out.
Mambuay also emphasized that the CPMT have already identified five barangays under the Agrarian Reform Community (ARC) of Malimono-Dulay that will be provided with immediate help and assistance.
These barangays include Cabasaran, Dulay Proper, Dulay West, Guimba and Malimono.
“These are our pilot areas. Other villages in Marawi will be given help as we start the process of networking and linkage for support services and relief assistance with our partners,” Mambuay said.
These five barangays, he added, were recently visited for assessment by the members of CPMT coming from the DAR, to include CPMT Chair Mambuay, DAR Undersecretary for Foreign-Assisted Projects Sylvia Mallari, DAR Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officers Ali Scissor Andig and Mu'ammar Mesug Pangandaman Unda.
Immediately after the site visit, the CPMT gathered in Iligan City and discussed their assessments and observations in the areas visited and the possible interventions that can be provided to address the needs and concerns of the five barangays. (Joy Chua, DAR-10)
