DILG USec Epimaco Densing Lectures Karen Davila on Land Reform for Boracay


Interior and Local Government Undersecretary Epimaco Densing says different modes of distributing land should be used in Boracay as he lectured the veteran broadcaster Karen Davila who was confused with the pronouncement of Pres. Duterte that he will put Boracay under Land Reform.


Karen Davila asked Usec Densing on what the President meant with the term Land Reform. Usec Densing clarified that Land Reform is different from Agrarian Reform. 

Watch the Video Interview of USec Densing by Karen Davila:



The DILG Undersecretary explained to Davila that Land Reform is distributing land, of course agricultural land but does not require investment in agriculture. Agrarian Reform on the other hand requires investments, in other words it should be agriculturally viable. 



USec Densing explained further that if you look at the island (Boracay) social justice and equity, the Cabinet Secretary last week organized and inter-agency meeting composed of DAR, DILG, DOT, the NCIP, DA, and DENR primarily to discuss the executive order drafted by DAR. Prior to the actual discussion Usec Densing already mentioned the difference in the pronouncement of the President, it's social equity. 

The DILG UNdersecretary also revealed that the island of Boracay is generating $800 Million on average of gross receipts a year, but despite the fact that its have been generating that much, there are still a lot of poor peopole in Boracay in other words, the growth of the economy never benefited the Boracaynons. 

In order to solve the problems, the government should use different modes of distributing lands, the intention of the President is to be distributed amongst the Boracaynons, the Atis, the original people in Boracay.
