Fruto, OIC PARPO II and LGU Sorsogon City through the Grassroots Participatory Budgeting.


WEB BARC03MARPO Lucy G. Bailon of Bacon District gave a refresher course on the history of land reform, as well as on the Memorandum Circular No. 05, series of 2010, which is about the new composition of BARC. Meanwhile, Legal Officer Pamela F. Morcoso discussed to the participants the salient features of CARP and CARPER.


According to Pamurayan Barangay Chairperson Marites Lucero, she learned so many things about the country’s land reform program, which has truly helped enrich her knowledge on agrarian reform processes.


The BARC Officers were also taught about organizational development skills by Marbel J. Lubiano, DAR-CDA Partnership Point Person, so that the next time they call for a meeting they already know how to conduct the proceedings properly.


WEB BARC02They were also updated about the “leasehold system and mediation process” by Norberto D. Laguna, MARPO of Sorsogon City, for them to know the rights of every tenant (lessee); landowner (lessor); their limit; and the difference between the landholdings under leasehold and the landholdings under the coverage of land acquisition and distribution (LAD).


“For a long time, we have not been given a seminar like this; only hand-outs which we still have to read and try to understand. But now, somebody from the DAR has explained to us what the agrarian law is all about,” said Romeo Llona, the BARC Chairperson of San Roque, Bacon, Sorsogon City since 1988, and currently holding a seat in Barangay Council.


“We have waited for this kind of training to give us an idea on how we can resolve the agrarian-related problems in our community,” said Marilou Yuson, BARC Chairperson and Barangay Councilor of Basud, Sorsogon City. (Alura Jaso)
