Looking back, CARP was put to an end in December 2008 and the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program extension with reforms revived the compulsory acquisition with a P150 billion budget.

The CARPer was signed into law by former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo in August 2009, containing an extension budget for CARP especially on Land Acquisition and Distribution program for five years starting July 2009, and other needed reforms to complete the acquisition and distribution of the remaining one million hectares of private agricultural lands to landless farmers.

The anniversary activities included a thanksgiving mass, blood letting, parlor games, tree planting in Bais, a sports fest on DAR Employees Day, and a Gender and Development Forum. (Aileen Villaseca/DAR)
