The SPLIT Project is a World Bank-funded project of the Department of Agrarian Reform. In Bicol, it will involve the partition of 116,663 hectares and about 1.38 million hectares of collective land titles (Collective Certificate of Land Ownership Awards or CCLOA) into individual land titles nationwide.
Lands distributed under CCLOAs will be subdivided through the SPLIT project, and famer-beneficiaries who were previously awarded lands under collective ownership will be issued individual land titles.
