Province : Sadanga, Bauko and Bontoc ARCsDescription: The Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project (ARISP) Phase III is a foreign-assisted project of DAR, designed to provide basic support services to help develop Agrarian Reform Communities (ARCs). It is funded from a concessional loan from the Government of Japan with counterpart financing from the DAR, Local Government Units and the beneficiaries. The project timetable is from CY 2008 to CY 2014. The project espouses the concept of integrated area development in the ARCs wherein basic infrastructure, organization / institutional, agricultural and enterprise development support are combined to produce incremental growth in productivity and income among farmers. Specifically, the project considers the provision of farm-to- market roads (FMR) and bridges, irrigation projects, post harvest facilities, and potable water supply system under its infrastructure component. For institutional development component, this entails the organizing and strengthening of various organizations in the ARCs to build their capabilities to operate and manage the infrastructure facilities and agri-business in a sustainable basis. The project also supports the development of viable agribusiness in the ARCs to harness the agricultural potentials, add value to agricultural products, and make them more competitive in the market.
