This publication is a lobby material to advocate the passage of the National Land Use Act. As one of the major outputs of the high level experts forum held last June 4, 2015, this abridged version of the proceedings highlights the experts’ discussion, answering the following key questions related to agriculture:

How do we define prime agricultural lands?
Should we have protected areas for agriculture i.e. prime agricultural lands, and how many hectares are needed to achieve food security?
What can LGUs do to ensure proper land use and protect agricultural lands?

The result of the forum, specifically on “Prime Agricultural Lands”, as defined by participants and experts, will be used as input to the on-going discussions on the pending NLUA bill in the Senate this 16th Congress, and for further discussion on agriculture and rural development in the future
