LMB moves to strengthen implementation of land laws, policies and surveying and titling activities
The Land Management Bureau (LMB), in its goal to provide efficient and effective land titling, has been pushing for amendments to existing land laws and strengthening implementation of policies in response to issues on land administration and management within the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and regional offices.
The High Level Policy Consultation conducted on April 27 to 28, 2022 is an avenue to propose solutions to pressing concerns on land survey and titling activities.
In his message, Undersecretary Ernesto Adobo emphasized the importance of land ownership and recalled the writings of renowned Hernando de Soto (Hidden Capital). He mentioned that the key to maximize government shares in land market activities is for the government to focus its effort in completing land titling and recognition of tenures. This starts with revisiting antiquated land laws including Commonwealth Act 141 or the Public Land Act.
CA 141 is considered as the mother law for all other policies related to land titling. Various provisions in the said law need updates for it to be responsive to the current challenges in the land sector. Subsequent laws, such as the Civil Code of 1950, the Forestry Code of 1975, and the Philippine Constitution of 1987, have provisions that have significant amendments to the Public Land Act.
