A General Assessment of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program


Author Info

  • Adriano, Lourdes S.
Registered author(s):


    The center of the county’s agrarian question is rooted in the skewed land distribution pattern. In addition, this particular agrarian structure is a legacy of our colonial experience and a product of the accumulated adverse effects of the palliative land reform measures implemented by the past governments. These are the arguments central to this paper that aims to present an analysis of the past and present agrarian reform programs. Is land reform a viable development policy? What conditions will ensure a feasible implementation of land reform? These are the questions this study attempts to shed light on.
