Welcome to DAR Region 12



DAR 12 Tops Land Distribution Nationwide

The Department of Agrarian Reform Regional Office 12 distributed the largest area of land in the entire country for two consecutive calendar years: 2011 and 2012.

From January 1 to December 31, 2011, DAR 12 distributed 32,752.85 hectares to 13,994 agrarian reform beneficiaries within the four provinces of the region which include North Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, South Cotabato, and Sarangani. This is equivalent to 97.44% of its 33,612 hectare target for the year.

DAR Region 12 maintained it high land transfer accomplishment rate the following year, maintaining its Rank 1 standing and even exceeding its accomplishment in 2011. In a letter to all DAR Regional Directors after the first quarter of 2012, then DAR Asst. Secretary for Field Operations Jose Z. Grageda lauded DAR 12 as he wrote “One region alone contributed close to three-fourths (73%) of the first quarter accomplishment. This is Region XII, which also delivered the highest volume in 2011.”

DAR-12 ended 2012 as the top performer in Land Acquisition and Distribution (LAD), with an accomplishment of 42,675 hectares, besting 15 other regions. This is equivalent to more than 35% of the nationwide LAD accomplishment of 119,742 hectares for the year. It exceeded both its 2011 regional accomplishment and the 2012 annual regional target. Moreover, its four provinces are also the Top 4 provinces nationwide in LAD.

In January, 2013, DAR-12 was formally recognized by now Undersecretary for Field Operations Jose Z. Grageda as the Number 1 region out of 16 regions in terms of volume of land distributed. This was during the National LTI-PBD Year-End Assessment for CY 2012.

DAR 12 and its four provincial offices continue to excel in its mandate towards the implementation of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) through land tenure improvement, agrarian justice, and coordinated delivery of essential support services to client-beneficiaries.
