A bill by Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson seeks to help Filipinos benefit from sustainable development by establishing a Land Administration Authority (LAA) that unifies the government’s land administration functions.
Lacson noted that while land is considered the ultimate resource in sustaining life, government agencies have not been efficient in functions such as land surveys, mapping, classification, titling and disposition and registration.
“The proposed Land Reform Act seeks to improve the land sector as a driver to sustainable development, economic growth and poverty alleviation. The bill’s enactment will ensure recognition of the Philippines in the global initiative for sustainable development. It will ultimately improve the access to land and services for the majority of the Filipino people, especially the poor,” he said in Senate Bill 256.
