DAR-6 cites CARP gains

piaILOILO CITY, Dec. 17(PIA)—There are many notable benefits which the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program has brought to the beneficiaries.

Gideon Umadhay, assistant regional director of the Department of Agrarian Reform, said that on top of the benefits of CARP, farmer-beneficiaries are now able to send their children to school.
Umadhay, who was guest in a radio public affairs program, said there is also peace in the communities where agrarian reform has been implemented.

“This is very evident, and nothing can invalidate the development efforts undertaken,” Umadhay said in the local dialect.

He also cited the organization of farmers into associations or cooperatives, as big contributing factor to the improvement od the agricultural areas.

He further said that convergence of services from agencies, like the provision of farm-to-market roads has also helped much to improve the agrarian communities.

To date, Umadhay said, DAR has already distributed 68 percent of the 115,000 hectares of CARP areas in the region.

Some 15,000 hectares are still up for distribution in Iloilo, 300 hectares each in Aklan and in Antique, 500 hectares in Capiz and 300 in Guimaras.

He added that they are still coping with the backlogs in Negros Occidental, as of date.  (JCM/ESS/PIA-Iloilo)
