DAR, ARB ink pact for land tenure security

piaCABARROGUIS, Quirino, Dec. 30 (PIA) - -The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) and the Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries of Nagtipunan signed a memorandum of agreement to ensure that the Certificates of Land Ownerships (CLOA) issued to the Bugkalot tribe will be used productively.

Arthur Faeldon, provincial agrarian reform officer, said the agreement also aims to ensure that the land shall not be sold, transferred or conveyed except through hereditary succession, or to the government, Landbank of the Philippines or to other qualified beneficiaries in consonance with the provision of RA 8371.

He said this is an initiative of the DAR provincial office here in a bid to protect the ARBs.  

Under the MOA, the DAR as the agency mandated to implement the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program through land tenure improvement, has issued a CLOA to some 1,150 Indigenous Peoples, particularly Bugkalot tribes who are found to be the actual occupants and tillers in the area.  

After screening and validation, the said tribes were issued CLOA/titles covering 4,600 hectares within the resettlement area located in Keat and Matmad in Nagtipunan.  

The area has been covered by the CARP in 1991 wherein six collective CLOA were issued to qualified ARBs at the time who were co-owners of the land.  

As stated under RA 6657 amended by RA 9700, collective CLOAs should be issued to individual ARBs. (ALM/TCB/PIA 2-Quirino)
