DAR to distribute new lands to farmers in Western Mindanao

mindaexaminerZAMBOANGA CITY – At least 100 hectares of new lands are expected to be distributed to qualified farmers who are beneficiaries of the government’s agrarian reform program in Western Mindanao region, the Department of Agrarian Reform said Friday.

Socorro Reambonanza, a spokeswoman for the DAR in Western Mindanao, said the distribution of the lands is in line with the agency's program. The DAR is in the forefront of the Aquino administration’s efforts to provide lands to the farmer-beneficiaries of the agrarian reform program.

She said the DAR-Western Mindanao or Region 9 is currently holding a two-day expanded Management Committee (MANCOM) meeting at the Lantaka Hotel in Zamboanga City.

“The MANCOM is a regular activity of the DAR that aims to assess program accomplishments; discuss and resolve problems, issues and concerns; and formulate plans and strategies to facilitate the implementation of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program,” Reambonanza told the regional newspaper Mindanao Examiner.

She said among the top DAR officials in the MANCOM were Regional Directress Julita Ragandang and her Assistant Directors Engineer Agnes Maata and lawyer Ramon Madronal, including Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officers from Zamboanga del Sur, Zamboanga del Norte and Zamboanga Sibugay, and division chiefs, and other technical staff. 

Just recently, the DAR also held a national workshop wherein organizational directives, programs, events, and activities for 2015 were discussed, according to Reambonanza.

“These directives and programs will have to be cascaded during the MANCOM to all provinces to ensure unity of direction and synchronization of plans and strategies for the attainment of plans and targets,” she said. (Mindanao Examiner)
