DAR expedites CLOA subdivision for 157K hectares.

As it works to expedite the subdivision of collective Certificates of Land Ownership Awards (CLOAs), the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) is targeting at least 157,000 hectares of agricultural land for field validation in the second semester of the year.

Conrado Estrella III, the secretary of agrarian reform, stated in a news release on Saturday that speeding up the Support to Parcelization of Land for Individual Titling (SPLIT) project’s subdivision of collective CLOAs into individual titles would empower farmer-beneficiaries by allowing each of them to pursue their own goals as new landowners.

It will also reinforce the farmer-beneficiaries property rights and increase the security of their tenancy, according to Estrella.

According to the SPLIT Project’s 2nd Semester 2022 objective, it will cover around 42% of the 378,293 hectares that were divided throughout the previous three semesters, from January 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022.

The beneficiaries who are co-owners of the covered landholdings will receive the collective CLOAs after they are divided into individual titles, he added.

The field validation objective for the second semester, according to Estrella, is a sign of the urgency with which President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s government is trying to complete the task.

The amount of land that is still usable has been determined at 1,002,485 hectares.

The field validation goals for each of the 80 Provincial Project Management Offices, according to Assistant Secretary for Field Operations Joey Sumatra, are based on “the revised workable balance less the accomplishments for the year 2021 and the first semester of this year.”

Sumatra, who serves as the national director for the SPLIT project, stated that as on July 14, 2022, “the targets were anchored with the collective CLOA Inventory System.”
