DAR to implement P10.4M infra projects in Albay

piaLEGAZPI CITY, Oct. 6 (PIA) -- The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) gave farmer-beneficiaries in the province of Albay something to look forward to with the implementation of the P10.4-million worth of infrastructure projects to boost the economic activities of farming communities in the said province.

Albay Provincial Agrarian Reform Program officer Romulo Britanico said the projects, funded under the Grassroots Participatory Budgeting (GPB), include the construction of 100 linear meter Spillway in Barangay Aurora-White Deer, Jovellar, of 1.5-kilometer Marayag-San Isidro farm-to-market road in Libon, and of 35 linear meter concrete footbridge in Sitio Lagsingan, Rapu-Rapu.

He added that the DAR would also implement coco-based processing and farming system in Guinobatan.

“Preparatory activities for these projects are now being undertaken by the DAR-Albay following the signing of the memorandum of agreement (MoA) with the concerned municipal mayors last September 10, 2014 at the DAR Albay Provincial Office,” Britanico said.

Guinobatan Mayor Ann Gemma Ongjoco thanked the DAR for extending support to her constituents. “Next year, we expect more bigger projects through DAR to sustain the development of our locality,” Mayor Ongjoco said.

Britanico said the project would benefit 10,400 farmers, of which 527 are agrarian reform beneficiaries.

The GPB, previously called Bottoms-Up Planning and Budgeting (BUB), was adopted as a strategy  to identify various programs and projects addressing the development needs of poorest cities and municipalities in the country.  (MAL/DAR/PIA5/Albay)
