Introduction :

Country: Philippines

 

Description of the Assignment: 

Communities in Aurora, Samar, Siargao and the Calamian Islands suffer from the devastating impacts of habitat destruction, biodiversity loss and extreme climate events. High levels of poverty, lack of awareness and resources for biodiversity protection, fragmented approaches to ecosystems-based adaptation, weak governance, gaps in national and local policies and institutions pose challenges and barriers to improved and sustainable practices. Expansive commercial interests, growing tourism and a lack of effective public private partnerships often lead to unsustainable practices creating negative stressors on scarce natural resources.

 This project seeks to address pressing environmental and associated social and economic challenges, by capacitating local communities and institutions, with support from government to pilot and implement initiatives that promote biodiversity protection. The project will promote the landscape approach, thereby supporting multi-stakeholder interventions, which mutually reinforce one another to result in landscape-level results. The objective of the project is to build socio-ecological and economic resilience in four selected landscapes and seascapes on the Eastern Seaboard of the Philippines - (1) Catubig Watershed Samar Island, (2) Aurora Province in the Sierra Madre, (3) Siargao Island Protected Landscape/Seascape - and along the West Philippine Sea - (4) Calamianes Group of Islands in Northern Palawan - through community-based activities for global environmental benefits and sustainable development.

 The following five outcomes are planned under this project:

·       Ecosystem services and biodiversity within four targeted landscapes and seascapes are enhanced through multi-functional land-use systems.

·       The sustainability of production systems in the target landscapes is strengthened through integrated agro-ecological practices.

·       Livelihoods of communities in the target landscapes and seascapes are improved by developing eco-friendly, climate-adaptive small-scale community enterprises with clear market linkages.

·       Multistakeholder governance platforms strengthened/in place for improved governance of target landscapes and seascapes for effective participatory decision making to enhance socio-ecological landscape resiliency.

·       Knowledge from community level engagement and innovative conservation practices is systematically assessed and shared for replication and upscaling across the landscapes, across the country, and to the global SGP network.
