KLMPE 2016 Brief
Agrarian reform is at the heart of social justice to correct centuries of injustice, oppression and neglect of poor landless women and men family farmers. The 26-year Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) is currently at limbo pending the enactment of a law that will complete the redistribution of all remaining haciendas and private agricultural lands. Decisive action is needed to ensure the immediate passage of the CARPER Extension Bill, create a high-level independent Commission to review and audit the performance of CARP, and conduct a participatory review of the Department of Agrarian Reform’s ARCESS program.
