    Land-based sectors in the Philippines are affected by institutional
    weaknesses in various ways, including overlapping and conflicting
    policies, laws and programmes, a lack of reform in public land
    management and inadequate funding for urban development, disaster
    mitigation and climate change. Land governance has thus been given
    paramount importance in recent years. However, security of tenure
    for all remains a challenge as the existing institutional set-up fails
    to respond to the needs of people in the land, fisheries and forestry

    The Philippines is basically an agricultural country with about 30 per cent of the total land area of the country cultivated by almost 5 million farmers. However farm area devoted to agriculture has been decreasing due to land conversion. The basic problem is that Filipino farmers do not have the ability to buy their own lands. The Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program was implemented to address this problem of landlessness thru redistribution of land.

    The 2012 Census of Agriculture (CA) reported 5.56 million farms/holdings1 covering 7.19 million hectares, which translated to an average area of 1.29 hectares per farm/holding. The number of farms/holdings increased from 1980 to 2012 by 62.6 percent as the average area of farms/holdings decreased from 2.84 hectares per farm/holding in 1980 to 1.29 hectare per farm/holding in 2012. This could be accounted to the partitioning of farms/holdings from one generation of agricultural holders/operators to their succeeding generation.
