piaZAMBOANGA DEL SUR, Feb 10 -- The Department of Agrarian Reform through the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) recently signed the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with State Universities and Colleges to implement  the Organizational and Enterprise Needs Assessment (OE NADA) that will help identify programs and projects needed by the selected Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Organizations (ARBOs).

Regional Director Julita A. Ragandang said the DAR designed the OE-NADA as basis for identifying the succeeding interventions to be extended to the ARBOs and to be commissioned by the engaged professional service providers (PSPs) from state universities and colleges (SUCs), civil society organizations (CSOs), national government agencies, and private institutions to enhance the capacity of the ARBOs on agri-extension and agri-enterprise development.

Ragandang said the endeavor aims to enhance the capacity of ARBOs in increasing farm yield and productivity, improve household incomes, business management and to incubate their agri-enterprise until such time that these ARBOs can effectively and sustainably manage their respective agri-enterprises.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II Arturo N. Soria, said that the MOA defined the modalities of the OE-NADA as a systematic approach to identify the nature and scope of the social problems in the proposed ARBOs.

Soria said the output of the partnership is the Design Assessment to ensure that the goals and assumptions are reasonable to  the needs of the ARBOs so that appropriate services will be in place to counter the problem.

Engr. Josephine G. Sisican, Chief of Program Beneficiaries Development Division, said that among the identified projects  Damit Multi Purpose Cooperative and Salawagan Agrarian Reform Cooperative and NIMALUSAN IA of Bayog are candidates for the adoption of System of Rice Intensification (SRI) cum Palay Trading and Establishment of Organic Agricultural Supply.
