4 LGUs get farm to market roads

visayan dailyFour local government units (LGUs) in Negros Occidental have received some P90 million this year from the Department of Agrarian Reform for the construction of farm-to-market roads, a government press release said.


DAR-6 Regional Director Stephen Leonidas said the municipalities of Hinobaan, Pontevedra, Valladolid and Candoni were identified as the recipients of the P90-million project this year.

The FMRs in Hinobaan and Pontevedra are already 100 percent accomplished, while those in Hinobaan and Candoni are more or less 50 percent accomplished, he said.

Each FMR ranges from two to five kilometers, depending on the proposal of the agrarian reform beneficiary organizations supported by the LGUs, the press release said.

The identification of the roads to be constructed is based on the Agrarian Reform Community development plan, which was done with thorough consultation with the members of the community, it added.

Meanwhile, Herman Ongkiko, USEC for Foreign-Assisted Special Projects, said that it is beneficial for LGUs to have a counterpart in the project so that they can maintain the road because of the sense of ownership.

He said DAR and the LGUS have established “a sense of ownership because every road or every agri-enterprise is based on a consultation process.”

Sixty percent of the project was shouldered by DAR while 40 percent counterpart was given by the LGUs, the press release said.

DAR's FMR project in the four municipalities in the province was in partnership with the Asian Development Bank.

Meanwhile, agrarian reform beneficiary organizations can expect more projects from DAR in 2016, as the agency has allocated P2.1 billion for infrastructure projects, it added.*
