DAR to implement Php42.13M worth of farm-to-market roads in Zamboanga del Norte

mindanaoDailyZAMBOANGA DEL NORTE — The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), through the Agrarian Reform Communities Project 2-Performance-Based Grant System (ARCP2-PBGS), recently signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the Department of Finance-Municipal Development Fund Office (DOF-MDFO) and the local government unit of Manukan, Zamboanga del Norte to implement a Php42-million farm-to-market road to promote sustainable development in the said municipality.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer (PARPO) Moh Dassan J. Adju said the infrastructure projects include the concreting of 2.5-kilometer Lingatongan-Meses and four-kilometer Gupot farm-to-market roads, costing Php14, 386,619 and Php27,748,679, respectively.

“The roads aim to promote sustainable development and help achieve a more rapid reduction in poverty as these projects will enable farmers access to transport their goods to various markets with ease and give them more time to cultivate their farms,” Adju said.

This infrastructure projects are in consonance with DAR’s thrust to continually deliver intensive support services to agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) and other farmers in the agrarian reform community (ARC).

The event were spearheaded by Manukan Mayor Enriquita U. Winters and PARPO Adju with other DAR and LGU officials. (PNA)
