HISTORY

The COMMISSION ON THE SETTLEMENT OF LAND PROBLEMS - (COSLAP) (COSLAP), which was created under Executive Order No. 561 dated September 21, 1979 is an administrative body vested with quasi-judicial powers and functions. It took over from the abolished Presidential Action Committee on Land Problems (PACLAP), created pursuant to Executive Order No. 251 on July 31, 1970, whose functions, including its jurisdiction, power and authority to act on, decide and resolve land disputes were all assumed by COSLAP.

COSLAP was created primarily to extend assistance to small settlers, tillers, indigenous cultural minorities and the underprivileged in settling their problems in an expeditious and inexpensive manner. As an agency, it is also charged with the responsibility of formulating and recommending policies and innovative measures intended to prevent and/or minimize the occurrence of land problems and disputes thereby contributing to the maintenance of peace and order in the country.
