RD Ayson gives answers to "what's next?" for the Ivatans


DAR OIC-Regional Director Marjorie P. Ayson explained to the Batanes natives, also known as Ivatans, to pursue the best laid plans for the Agrarian Reform Communities (ARCs) after receiving individual land titles and that they can expect support services from the Department.
 
“It doesn’t end with the lands” Ayson emphasized to the Ivatans after successfully handing over CLOAs.Following the CLOA distribution in the municipalities of Sabtang and Ibana in the ARC of San Joaquin and San Antonio Batanes, the landowners are headed for further support by the Department.

Farmer beneficiaries from the municipality of Sabtang raise CLOAs together

 


The DAR service projects involve provision of credit and microfinance assistance, skills trainings, infrastructure projects such as farm-to-market roads and irrigation systems, and the most recent is the delivery of common service facilities through the ARCCESS project.

 
Support services are dependent on the strength of the ARCs in managing these projects to maintain their sustainability and eventually gain profit from them.
In the lead during the event were Regional Director Marjorie P. Ayson, Provincial Agrarian Reform Officers Eunomio Israel of Batanes, Eduardo Bareng of Quirino and Joselito Garcia of Nueva Vizcaya.
 
DARAB Assistant Secretary Jim Coleto, who was the guest of honor for the event puts forward to the beneficiaries: “The agency went through rough-and-tumble just to deliver those land titles to your hands. Don’t sell them”
 
 
 
LGU support
 
DAR’s relations with LGUs of the region proved dedicated in terms of partnership. Batanes Governor Vicente Gato was hand-in-hand with DAR officers during CLOA distribution in Basco.  
 
Batanes Congresswoman Henedina Abad through her representative expressed strong support to both the Ivatans and the endeavors of the agency during the CLOA distribution in ARC of San Joaquin and San Antonio.
 
ASEC Coleto encouraged the Ivatan farmers to pay their taxes: ‘It is a responsibility’, he explained.
