news 2 reg july 14 2015The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) conducted a one day Orientation and Planning Meeting on Climate Proofing for the development of agrarian reform communities (ARCs) in Pilar and San Miguel town both in Bohol.

In the orientation, line agencies presented their respective plans and programs for incorporation with the action plans of the municipal local government units of Pilar and San Miguel.   

“The one major output of this orientation is to have an updated ARC Development Plan consistent with the provisions of the Local Government Code, the Framework, and the National Climate Change Action Plan for the benefit of the agrarian reform beneficiaries in the province of Bohol,” Fua stressed.

Participants in the orientation include Rusell Huiso of the Kasilak Multi-purpose Cooperative of San Miguel; Corazon Galleza of San Isidro Multi-purpose Cooperative of Pilar; Engr.
