112 farmers receive stewardship certificates in Agusan del Norte

Buenavista, Agusan del Norte (25 January) -- At least 112 farmers received the government's stewardship certificates in three towns of Agusan del Norte province.

Under the first co-management sub-agreement awarding ceremony, the jubilant farmer beneficiaries, along with their respective immediate families, received such certificates at JP Satorre Gym in Buenavista town.

The beneficiaries came from the municipalities of Las Nieves, Buenavista and Carmen (LASBUENASCAR)-Sustainable Agro-Forestry Development Project (LSAFDP).

The realization of the awarding of stewardship certificates to farmers came out after the DENR and the provincial government of Agusan del Norte represented by Gov. Erlpe John Amante recently inked a memorandum of agreement (MOA) to help the farmers in the province, particularly those in far-flung areas.

In that awarding ceremony, Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer (PENRO) Rosendo A. Asunto expressed heartfelt gratitude to the farmers for their continuing support to the government's environment preservation and forest protection program.

For his part, LSAFDP manager Alex Garay commended the technical working group of the concerned government agencies for their fulfillment of the farmers' dream to have their own "management agreement awards".

Also present during the awarding on Wednesday were Department of Agriculture (DA) Regional Director Constancio Maghanoy, Buenavista Mayor Francisco Y. Chan, Jr., Vice Mayor Ramon Bungabong, Agusan del Norte Provincial Administrator Percianita Racho, barangay officials and tribal leaders.

Last year, the Butuan City-Agusan del Norte DENR-Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) under CENR officer Jaime Acebu also awarded 700 land titles to landless people under the government's poverty alleviation program "Handog Titulo". (muc/PIA-Caraga) [top]
