DAR, land reform-related agencies and the CARP: A study of government and alternative approaches to land acquisition and distribution

This study examines the land acquisition and distribution process of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) by analyzing the nature and extent of participation of the various government agencies. Attempts are also made in identifying the areas where land reform can be hastened. While there are opportunities for change, the paper concludes that the overall impact of these changes on land reform may not be as large in terms of area coverage. Generally, there are many agencies involved in land reform, many documents required and many check and balance systems have been instituted that tend to prolong the land acquisition process.
