Manual of Procedures for Right-of-way Acquisition

The implementation of government infrastructure projects in agricultural areas in the country is an essential component towards social and economic development of the agricultural sector and its players. However, in most cases, the engagement of the private sector is necessary to accelerate the completion of such projects. One of which is the acquisition of ROW for infrastructure projects which had been a tedious process as cooperation to such undertaking is not at all cases supported. To address this issue, RA No. 10752 “An Act Facilitating the Acquisition of Right-of-Way, Site or Location for National Government Infrastructure Projects,” or “Right-of-Way Act”, was created in 2016. This Act was enacted for the purpose of acquisition of real properties needed as ROW for national government projects undertaken by any department, bureau, office, commission, authority, or agency of the national government.
