Aklan to host agrarian reform summit

piaKALIBO, Aklan, July 8 (PIA6) --  An agrarian reform summit is set to be held in Aklan July 10 by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR).

According to Ma. Teresa C. Valencia, Provincial Agrarian Reform II, DAR-Aklan is holding the activity in observance of the 27th Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP)and the 6th year of CARPER.

The activity, according to Valencia, which will be held at the ABL Sports and Cultural Center at the Capitol Site, Kalibo, is being undertaken as part of the inclusive partnership of all duty bearers working for the farmers in Aklan.

“The CARP anniversary will highlight the gains our program reached in its 27 years of dedicated service to the Aklanon stakeholders. It is an opportune time to convene the land owners, agrarian reform beneficiaries, representatives of BARC and CARPER implementers and update them on the latest programs and projects for our partners”, Valencia said in her letter of invitation to DAR partners regarding the event.

Some 150 multi-sectoral representatives of agrarian reform are expected to attend the activity, said Valencia.

For the activity, DAR also plans to hold a farmers’ market to showcase their products as well as those of other agricultural players the agency is planning to invite so that these groups can also display their products to enhance agricultural productivity.

DAR-Aklan will also be recognizing Outstanding Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries, their organizations and CARP implementers who have untiringly pursued the noble goals of the program, the DAR-Aklan PARO said.

Meanwhile, to show the Aklan farmers that DAR cares for them, the agency has sought the help of the Department of Health (DOH) to have the the farmers vaccinated with pneumonia vaccines at the venue during the activity.

“This is because our Aklan farmers are aging already and we need to take care of them as they are the ones exposed to the elements while producing food for us”, said Teresita Grace Quimpo, DAR-Aklan Information Officer during the recent meeting of the Aklan Public Information Officers Association (APIOA) here.
