NCPAG PJPA 2007-1-4: Ideals and practice in the study of Philippine Public Administration and Governance

As the lead department in the implementation of CARP, the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) saw the need for a reliable and accurate database of record on land titles, cadastral maps, lot plans and other pertinent documents. The Cadastral Support to CARP (or CSCARP) Project including the adoption of Geographic Information System (GIS) was crafted as the solution to DAR's problem of absence of a reliable database on land ownership, and efforts at improving the distribution of land ownership and providing the proper support to farmer-beneficiaries. A review of the project's implementation over a period of fifteen years reveals the slow integration of the innovation in the conduct of the four areas of service delivery. In effect, the GIS information is not yet significantly used in accomplishing operational tasks, or more so to guide decision making in the government's agrarian reform program.
