Joint Administrative Order No. 3 (JAO), series of 2014, contains the guidelines in the disposition of untitled privately-claimed agricultural lands (UPALs). The objectives of JAO No. 3 are to define the limits of jurisdiction of DAR and DENR in the coverage of UPALs under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) and its distribution in excess of the applicable titling limit on the ownership of public lands.
