DAR, CSOs strengthen ties for CARP implementaiton in Negros

negrosdailybulletinDuring the recently-concluded consultative dialogue series, CSO leaders shared a common sentiment that DAR specifically in Negros Occidental 2 could perform effectively and efficiently if CSOs would help in the resolution of problems and issues presented during the said dialogues.

These problems involved the installation of Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARBs), farmer beneficiaries (FBs) identification, survey, rampant "arendohanay" or selling of rights, erroneous Notices of Coverage (NOCs) and problems involving other implementing agencies. These problems were some of the many identified by DAR and the CSOs during the dialogue series.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer (PARPO) II Lucrecia S. Taberna emphasized her stand in upholding the integrity of the department in the delivery of public services to all farmworkers and agrarian reform beneficiaries and challenged the CSOs to hold hand in hand with the department in order to achieve the common goal which is achieving a nation where there is equitable land ownership and empowered agrarian reform beneficiaries who are effectively managing their economic and social development for a better quality of life.

It was also agreed by the department and CSO leaders to conduct regular monthly dialogue per municipal or city level, quarterly provincial dialogue and semestral fellowship in order to discuss and resolve issues and as well as to strengthen the bond and camaraderie between CSOs and DAR.

The issues and concerns identified during the dialogue series will be consolidated by the department and will be forwarded to the office of DAR Secretary Rafael Mariano to serve as one of the basis for the conduct of consultative dialogue to all stakeholders in Negros Occidental.

The dialogue series were conducted from August 9 to 11, 2016. The 1st batch of the dialogue was participated by all CSOs in District 6 and was held in the Municipality of Cauayan, while the 2nd batch was held in La Castellana and participated by CSOs in District 5 and the last batch was held in Bacolod City participated by CSOs in District 4. These CSOs include Task Force Mapalad (TFM); Kaisahan Tungo sa Kaunlarang Kanayunan at Repormang Pansakahan, Inc.; Negros Occidental Federation of Farmer's Association (NOFFA); Paghidaet sa Kauswagan Development Group, Inc. (PDG); Partido ng Manggagawa (PM); Social Action Center (SAC); Damayan ng Manggagawa, Magsasaka at Mangingisda sa Bansa (DAMMMBA), Inc.; DALO-MARA, AMA Negros and group of farmers from different districts.
