THE support services team of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) in Negros Occidental-North is focusing on the continuous provision of relevant and sustainable livelihood projects to the farmer-beneficiaries in the province.
DAR’s Program Beneficiaries Development Division (PBDD), during the Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Sustainability Program 1st Semester Review and 2nd Semester Planning Session at the Nature's Village Resort in Talisay City recently, aligned its targets for calendar year 2021.
The activity also aims to discuss and provide updates on the status of the programs and resolve the issues and concerns pertaining to its field activities.
Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer I Milagros Flores, in her message, said the primary goal of the planning session is to understand and carry out the guideposts and directives set by the regional and central offices for the send semester.
“There’s a need to come up with efficient and effective plans and strategies for the welfare of our agrarian reform beneficiary organizations (Arbos),” she added.
Aisha May Ardiente, officer-in-charge Chief Agrarian Reform Program Officer of the PBDD, said they aim to identify and address the gaps that facilitate or hinder the implementation of the programs and projects.
Other agenda of the activity included a review of the first semester accomplishments versus targets, adoption of new initiatives and strategies through planning; and action plans for the remaining targets for the second semester this year.
They also discussed the updates, issues, and concerns affecting the accomplishments of specific PBDD activities.
The DAR, through the PBDD, is mandated to provide ARBs continuous institutional and enterprise development training and workshops to ensure the sustainability of its programs and projects.
