piaDIPOLOG CITY, Nov. 3 (PIA) - The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), in partnership with the Korean Rural Community Corporation (KRCC) held a forum on Agri-Enterprise Investment with the Agrarian Reform Community (ARC) clusters at the Top Plaza Hotel here recently.

Agri-enterprise development is DAR’s strategy of addressing rural poverty and enhancing agricultural production of the ARCs.

To fund this initiative, the Agrarian Reform Communities Projects, Phase-2  (ARCP2) has partnered with KRCC to develop the ARCs in Zambonga del Norte.

The ARCP2 is one of the DAR’s foreign-assisted projects, which is funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) that complements the regular projects of the department by implementing specific development measures to improve the well-being of the farmers.

Along with the community-driven development (CDD) and Rural Infrastructure (RI), the main focus of ARCP2 includes agri-enterprise development.

This partnership initiative also aims to increase the agricultural productivity, support agricultural facilities and infrastructure, marketing and alternative venture arrangements.

Among the priority areas of the initiative are the coconut-rich areas in the ARC Cluster in Salug, Leon Postigo, Tampilisan and Godod, all in Zamboanga del Norte. (FPG/ATR/PIA9-Zambo del Norte)
