DAR to empower Albay towns

balita-phMANILA, Nov. 14 — The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) will soon implement various agrarian projects worth Php10-million in Albay province after the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) released the allocated budget under the Grassroots Participatory Budgeting (GPB).

Albay Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Romulo Britanico said the projects include the construction of the 100 linear meter Spillway in Brgy. Aurora-White Deer, Jovellar, the 1.5-kilometer Marayag-San Isidro farm-to-market road in Libon, and the 35 linear meter concrete footbridge in Sitio Lagsingan, Rapu-Rapu.

Britanico said that the GPB also calls for the development of coco-cased processing and farming system in Guinobatan town.

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

Preparatory activities for these projects are now being undertaken by the DAR Albay with the help of concerned municipal mayors.

Guinobatan Mayor Ann Gemma Ongjoco expressed her gratitude to the DAR for helping them boost the economic lives of Albayanons.

For his part, Rapu-Rapu Mayor Ronald Galecia said he is looking forward for bigger projects through DAR to sustain the development the government has initiated in their community.
The GPB, previously called Bottoms-Up Planning and Budgeting (BUB), was adopted as a strategy to identify various programs and projects that address the development needs of poorest cities and municipalities in the country. (PNA)
