Accomplishments under the CARP
Philippine Agrarian

Agrarian Reform Defined
1. Two important dimensions
2. A basic problem of Philippine Society
Concept of Agrarian Reform
Means the redistribution of lands, regardless of crops or fruits produced, to farmers and regular farm workers who are landless, irrespective of tenurial arrangement, to include the totality of factors and support services designed to lift the economic status of the beneficiaries and all other arrangements alternative to the physical redistribution of lands, such as production or profit-sharing, labor administration, and the distribution of shares of stock which will allow beneficiaries to receive a just share of the fruits of the lands they work.

-Land and the people; Agricultural and the social
-Productivity and human rights
- Person who tills the land does not own it and the person who owns the land does not till it.
- Person who tills the land does not own it and the person who owns the land does not till it.
- The non-tilling owner gets more income while the non-owning tiller gets relatively poorer and poorer
3. Basically a question of land and distribution and utilization
-Land is necessary for all human beings & everybody has the right to use land for his survival
-The right to use is given to all individuals but the matter to be used is limited & the number of users unlimited
-The right to own property, universal but limited
A derivative of the right to use
We have the right to own things because we have the right to use things in order to live. If this is not so, what then is the basis of our right to ownership?
While the right to own is derived from right to use, the right to own is further qualified by its proper use.
Precept of Philippine Agrarian Reform
Agrarian Reform:

land tenure improvement, with land distribution at the core,
and support services delivery as a crucial input. (Bulatao, 1990)
"Land to the tiller"
intended to democratize income and wealth while improving the socio-economic status and well-being of the rural poor. vehicle towards industrialization through the proceeds from land compensation and the resulting agricultural surplus.
3 Phases of the Program
Covers about 7.4 million hectares was to be devoted to reforming all public agricultural lands to be opened for new development and resettlement, as well as private lands 50 hectares and above.
Different Modes of Land Acquisiton and
For public lands which comprise more than half of the target land reform, distribution is done through either Free Patents for Alienable and Disposable ( A & D) lands, Certificates of Land Ownership Awards (CLOAs)

For resettlement sites, or stewardship contracts for public lands covered by the Integrated Social Forestry Program (ISFP)
No system of land ownership
Regarded all land as their public domain, although they did not choose to cultivate all of the available land
No formalized procedures for recognizing private ownership (deeds, title, tax documents)
Pagan system
Covers around 1.45 million hectares was to be devoted to the completion of the Marcos land reform, the reform of idle and abandoned lands, and lands voluntarily offered for sale the owners, and the reform of estates foreclosed by government financial institutions and those acquired by the Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG).
- Involve the realignment of land relationships to meet the interest of the govt and the dominant class in a society.
- Transformation of land relationship that tillers of the soil are emancipated from pre-modern exploitation by the landed class leading to economic development in countries where agricultural sector is dominant. (Takahashi, 1990)

Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Law
Signed by President Corazon Aquino on June 10, 1988.

The Comprehensive
Agrarian Reform Law is responsible for the implementation of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP).
Divided into two- sub phases and has a combined coverage of 1.35 million hectares.

Phase 3-A was supposed to cover private agricultural lands of 24 to 50 hectares
Phase 3 – B is supposed to cover private farmlands of areas above the retention limit up to 24 hectares

Compulsory acquisition (CA) is the main mode to be used in expropriating lands whose owners did not voluntary offer them for land reform
CARP was originally conceived to need around P221 billion which covers both the land acquisition cost and the package of support infrastructure , both physical and social.

CARP defers land redistribution of commercial farms, defined as private lands over five hectares devoted to livestock, poultry, aquaculture including salt beds. Fishponds and prawn farms, fruit farms, orchards, vegetable and cut-flower farms, and cacao, coffee and rubber plantations. These will be subject to expropriation only after 10 years from June 15, 1988.
