DAR exceeds land title registration target in Caraga

By CHRIS V. PANGANIBAN

BUTUAN CITY—The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) in the Caraga region has surpassed its target for the registration of land titles to farmers under Project SPLIT for the year 2023.

Merlita S. Capinpuyan, Regional Director of DAR Caraga, celebrated this noteworthy achievement as the region concluded the year with a remarkable 102 percent accomplishment against the annual target for the registration of e-titles.

Director Capinpuyan expressed her satisfaction, saying, “Caraga region concluded the year at 102 percent, surpassing the annual target for e-titles registration. This exceptional feat, exceeding 100 percent of the annual target, has only been accomplished by two other regions nationwide, making it a special achievement for Project SPLIT implementers in Caraga.”

She further highlighted the impact of the Support to Parcelization of Lands for Individual Titling (Project SPLIT), which successfully registered a total of 6,757 e-titles, covering 9,639 hectares of land across Caraga for the fiscal year 2023. Capinpuyan emphasized that more farmers in the region have become landowners due to the government’s dedication and hard work.

Norma Martin, a farmer-beneficiary from Barangay Sta. Ana in Nasipit, Agusan del Norte, expressed her gratitude, saying, “I have been tilling this land for 15 years, and I am more motivated to work now that I am the owner. Thank you to the government.”

She added, “I now have the land title. Thank you, DAR, for your efforts in processing our land ownership.”

According to Christian Lafuente, DAR information officer, Project SPLIT is a collaborative initiative between the Philippines and the World Bank. It is a multi-billion dollar special project designed to subdivide Collective Certificates of Land Ownership Awards (CCLOAs) and issue individual e-titles to annotated agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) within these CCLOAs.

Lafuente mentioned, “With the recent approval for the extension of Project SPLIT implementation by the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) – Regional Development Council (RDC) Caraga, and with recognized support from the Senate, the team is confident that 2024 will bring even more remarkable developments and milestones for DAR’s Project SPLIT, especially for the farmer beneficiaries.”
