Bureau Land Tenure Improvement

Address: R-7, Diliman, Quezon City, Metro Manila

Services Provided by Bureau of land Development:


The Land Tenure Improvement (LTI) component seeks to secure the
tenurial status of the farmers and farm workers in the lands they till. It is
operationalized either through land acquisition and distribution (LAD) or
leasehold operations. LAD involves the redistribution of government and
private agricultural lands to landless farmers and farm workers. It secures
farmers' tenure, promotes social equity, and provides them with necessary
productive resources needed to ensure their economic viability and
productivity. Leasehold operations, on the other hand, is the alternative nonland transfer scheme. It covers all tenanted agricultural lands such those in
the retained areas, not yet acquired for distribution under CARP, and those
which may be validly covered under existing laws. With the enactment of RA
9700 or the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program Extension with
Reforms in 2009, LAD will be completed by June 30, 2014 on a province-byprovince basis.
What are the Guiding Principles ConcernedWith?
The guiding principles deal with land tenure and land tenure systems and
their actual and necessary consideration in development cooperation.
Land tenure includes public and private rights and written andunwritten sets of
laws. In the broad sense, land tenure is also seen as the equivalent to land
tenure systems; this way of viewing land tenure concentrates on the
relationships between people and land. Land tenure systems include the
entire scope of land tenure relationships and are part of the more
comprehensive propertyrights system. Thus, they set the framework
forimplementation of land policy and land-related objectives.
