DAR should stand alone --PARCCOM XI

by Manny Agapay/DAR-11

DAVAO CITY, Jan. 11 (PIA) -- The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) should remain as a Department and should not be merged with any other government agency to sustain the gains of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP).

Such is the recommendation of the Provincial Agrarian Reform Coordinating Committee (PARCCOM) of Region XI in a resolution endorsed to the Presidential Agrarian Reform Council (PARC) chaired by President Benigno S. Aquino, III.

PARCCOM XI, a multisectoral advisory body created to coordinate and monitor the implementation of CARP and whose chairperson is appointed by the President, met recently.

It is strongly urging the PARC to seriously consider endorsing the extension of CARP beyond 2014 and continue with the support services extended to the farmer beneficiaries.

In another resolution, PARCCOM chairpersons representing the five DAR provincial offices in the region were unanimous in urging PARC to be more aggressive in convincing the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) to direct the Barangay Local Government Units (BLGUs) especially the Barangay Agrarian Reform Committee (BARC) to extend logistical support in the implementation of CARP in their respective area of jurisdiction.

PARC is also asked to direct CARP line agencies who are Ex-Officio members to be more supportive by way of attending the PARCCOM meetings.

Meanwhile, PARCCOM is strongly pushing PARC to fast track the approval of Joint-Venture Agreements (JVAs) with the farmers which have been long delayed and have caused squabbles among farmers in commercial plantations.

PARCCOM chairpersons are Rodolfo M. Villanueva of Davao Norte, Edgardo Española of Comval, Randy Barrido of Davao Sur, Neceas Galope of Davao City and Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer Venchito S. Mandap of Davao Oriental. (DAR-11/Manny Agapay)
