DAR overshoots target in land acquisition, distribution

Kalibo, Aklan (17 February) -- The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) here was able to accomplish 112% of its targets in Land Acquisition and Distribution and was able to distribute 475 hectares of lands to 421 agrarian reform beneficiaries of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP).

The gains of contribution of DAR-Aklan were cited by Governor Carlito Marquez when he delivered his State of the Province Address (SOPA) recently.

DAR-Aklan, according to the governor, effectively complemented the priority objective of the province in alleviating poverty particularly in the agrarian sector.

Under DAR's rural infrastructure program, it was able to rehabilitate and concretize eleven kilometers of farm-to-market roads in the amount of Php 25 million.

"After typhoon Frank in June, DAR-Aklan was one of the national agencies that participated and conducted distribution of relief goods and conducted medical and dental missions in coordination with other agencies and civic organizations," the governor said.

He also acknowledged the efficiency and the sustainable partnerships forged by the DAR and the local government through Atty. Daniel Y. Martelino, the Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer. (DAR/PIA) [top]
