Strengthen CARP implementation

visayan dailyProvincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Lucrecia Taberna of the Department of Agrarian Reform-Negros Occidental II challenged the members of the Provincial Agrarian Reform Coordinating Committee and the Provincial CARP Implementing Team to strengthen the implementation of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program before the transition to the next administration takes place.

At the two-day Joint PARCCOM-PCIT Convergence Strategic Planning Workshop held at Forest Park Water Garden Resort, Bacolod City that ended yesterday, Taberna said that PARCCOM and the PCIT need to unite in order for the department to access different programs and support services that will not only improve the production, but also improve the quality of lives of farmer beneficiaries.

She added that through the active participation and involvement of PARCCOM and PCIT members, more Certificates of Land Ownership Awards will be distributed and lives of more farmers will be touched.

She assured the farmers that as the PARPO II of southern Neg. Occ., she will continue to implement the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program at all costs despite all negative criticisms.

Taberna said she also hopes that whoever will replace the Aquino administration, will still make the existing social justice agenda the top priority.

The Joint PARCCOM-PCIT Convergence Strategic Planning Workshop was created under Executive Order No. 406 that mandates certain departments and agencies to review, evaluate and align their programs and projects in order to integrate them into the major thrusts of the CARP. EO No. 406 also directs the DAR to accelerate the agrarian reform beneficiaries' development through the provision of economic and social infrastructure support.

The PCIT is composed of the Department of Agriculture, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Department of Public Works and Highways, Department of Transportation and Communication, Department of National Defense, Department of Justice, Department of Budget and Management, Department of Trade and Industry, Land Bank of the Philippines and Land Registration Authority.

The PARCCOM created under Administrative Order Number 1 Series of 1997 is composed of DAR, Office of the Provincial Agriculturist, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Land Bank of the Philippines, representatives of landowners, Farmers' Organizations/Cooperatives, cultural community and of different Non-Government Organizations.*KBC
