DAR Cat’nes turns over P2-M flood control project

Catanduanes TribuneThe Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) here has turned over a P2-million flood control project funded under the Grassroots Participatory Budgeting (GPB) process, formerly known as Bottom’s-up Budgeting (BUB).


Last April 8, DAR regional director Luis Bueno Jr. and DAR Catanduanes chief PARPO Alexander Teves presided over the turnover rites at barangay Juan M. Alberto in Baras townm together with other agency officials, including assistant regional director Rodrigo Realubit, RSSD CARPO Lerma Dino and the different PBD chiefs from the two Camarines Sur offices, Catanduanes, Sorsogon, Masbate and Albay. Key officials from the regional office were also present while CARPO Nerisa Aldea of Catanduanes DAR-PBD led her staff in welcoming her counterparts from other Bicol provinces.

In his message, RD Bueno expressed his appreciation to the barangay folks, especially farmer–members of BANAAG-J Farmers’ Association which is the project partner of the agency in the Agrarian Reform Community (ARC) in Baras. The association presently boasts of 34 CARP farmer-beneficiary members, with Violeta Guerrero is its DAR-designated Development Facilitator (DF).

PARPO Teves also called for the continuing cooperation and support of the local communities to safeguard the structure so that it would last and benefit the people not just within barangay JMA where the project is built but also in neighboring villages as well.

Baras Mayor Rodel Abicheula, through secretary Maclure Bigtas, thanked the DAR for providing the municipality with the much-needed project which he said would help save lives and ensure better food sufficiency by preventing damage to crops and nearby ricefields during massive flooding and typhoons.   

In their acceptance of the project, barangay captains Gabriel Villanueva and Eliseo Lizaso of Agban and JMA, respectively, assured the local government and DAR of their commitment to take good care of the project, the completion of which they described as a great relief for their long-time aspirations, considering that their villages are flood-prone.

Implemented by contract scheme, the project was started on July 31, 2015 and was finished on October 30 of the same year under GPB, a strategy intended to ensure the attainment of Medium-term Development Goals of the government in reducing poverty as indicated in the 2011- 2016 Philippine Development Plan.
