“Land for Everybody in the Philippines: How Can it Happen?" on KK! @ DZRH -AM on July 23, 2008, Wed., 7:30 p.m. (Manila Time)

 

How many Filipinos have heard of Bogo City? Few, perhaps. It is a new, beautiful coastal city at the tip of Cebu Province. A golf course is now operating near it and a Korean village is starting in the area, similar to what is going on in other parts of the Philippines. That is good, if the foreigners will not only enjoy the beauty of the country, but will also bring in investments that will make Filipinos progress economically.

 

Before we welcome more foreigners, we also need to ensure first that every Filipino family has access to land to live on and benefit from in their homeland. To make that happen  we must address soon many land administration and management issues that include "inconsistent and outdated land-related laws; overlapping tenurial instruments in public lands; disjointed policies, rules and regulations; cumbersome procedures and dysfunctional structures; inappropriate land classification for planning and development; and bureaucratic land administration systems and procedures."

Those issues have been identified by the Land Administration and Management Project Phase 2 (LAMP2), an interagency project of the DENR and the Department of Finance. LAMP2 has also identified the critical first step-- reform the system, as proposed in the Land Administration Reform Act or the LARA Bill.  While the bill remains pending in Congress, LAMP2 has started to map out alternatives for land reform that will widen the options for land ownership by every Filipino in the country.
