DAR to implement R56.6-M project for North Cotabato

manila bulletin blue logoThe Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) is set to implement a P56.6-million worth of projects to help alleviate poverty through the analysis of key agricultural products of settlement areas in selected municipalities in North Cotabato.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II (PARPO) Marion Abella said the projects, implemented under the DAR-Mindanao Sustainable Agrarian and Agriculture Development (MinSAAD) Project, seeks to address poverty issues in the settlement areas through competitive and sustainable agriculture, using inclusive approaches and modalities in investments that are based on value-chain analysis.

This type of analysis looks at every step a business goes through, from the choice of raw materials to the delivery of the product to eventual end-user. The goal is to deliver maximum value for the least possible total cost.

“The DAR-MinSAAD project will focus on sustainable agricultural development; delivery of basic support services, effective governance and social protection, among others, to ease poverty in marginalized target areas in the municipalities of Alamada, Banisilan, Pigcawayan, and Tulunan,” Abella said.

He added that the local government units (LGUs) would play a key role in implementing the projects that seek to enhance the agricultural productivity and increase income of farmer-beneficiaries and other small-scale farmers.
