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.

The Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program was implemented to address this problem of landlessness thru redistribution of land.

growth and equity and achieving social justice in many countries. The process by which
decisions are made regarding access to and use of land, the manner in which those decisions are
