3. CARRD (CENTER FOR AGRARIAN REFORM AND RURAL DEVELOPMENT)
Nature of the organization: NGO
Brief description of the association: The Center for Agrarian Reform & Rural Development or CARRD started out as a working group of professionals in 1987 whose main purpose was to respond to the technical needs of peasant federations such as the Katipunan ng Samahang Magsasaka (KASAMA) and the Lakas ng Magsasakang Pilipino (LMP).
The particular needs that these groups articulated were with respect to research and advanced training for peasant leaders in the rural areas. This became more evident when the abovementioned federations took a proactive stand in preparation for the historic “Agrarian Reform Express”. This was a Luzon-wide peasant demonstration held in 1987 to pressure the then Corazon Aquino administration to pass an authentic agrarian reform program.
In October 19, 1988, the working group together with the leadership of KASAMA and LMP decided to institutionalize their partnership. It was aimed at sustaining their concerted efforts to advance the cause of agrarian reform and rural development and be of service to a broader segment of the rural population.
The group thereafter registered themselves with the Securities and Exchange Commission as a non-stock, non-profit corporation taking the name of Center for Agrarian Reform and Rural Development or CARRD.
- Ensure implementation of agrarian reform program by protecting the gains and advancing the interests of agrarian reform beneficiaries and rural communities through formation of farmer paralegals, education and mobilization, and advocacy
- Develop farming families into viable social entrepreneurs through interventions on increasing farm productivity, value adding to the product and developing market linkages in the context of sustainable agriculture
- Create sustainable livelihoods and promote socio-economic development through the formation of and assistance to rural cooperatives
- Strengthen institutional capacity and viability, and establish collaborative linkages with individuals, groups and movements in private and public sectors to achieve these goals
4. PAFID (PHILIPPINE ASSOCIATION FOR INTERCULTURAL DEVELOPMENT)

PAFID works exclusively with the indigenous peoples’ sector, specifically upon written or signed requests for assistance from indigenous communities or their representatives.
PAFID and its partner indigenous communities have pioneered the use of community forest lease contracts and stewardship agreements, the development of social forestry instruments in the Philippines, and the formulation of ancestral domain bills to counter the wholesale dispossession of indigenous communities and their marginalization from natural resource use planning, disposition and management. PAFID is also a pioneer in the development of community mapping as a means to empower indigenous communities to engage or negotiate with Government. Since 1989 PAFID and its partners have surveyed and mapped a more than of 1.2 Million hectares of ancestral domains in the Philippines.
PAFID today is engaged in the development of indigenous social organizations and community organizing, ancestral domain management planning, community-based natural resources management, community mapping or cultural mapping, agro-forestry, potable water systems, radio communication networks, technical services, policy advocacy and others. Over forty percent of PAFID staff are themselves members of indigenous communities, and several are second or third generation descendants of community partners and advocates who had lobbied for ancestral land claims, and won.
