Co-management of renewable natural resource on a coastal zone


For the Palawan site, the CIFOR - CIRAD team and the University of the Philippines Los Baños Foundation Inc. (UPLB DFI) worked together on developing fair partnerships for local development to improve natural resources sustainability in Palawan, Philippines.

The LPF project built upon the work already undertaken by CIFOR’s Adaptive Collaborative Management (ACM) project. Since the ACM project ended in 2002, many changes have taken place. The communities have developed new priorities, faced new challenges and problems but also new opportunities have arisen due to changes in policies and regulations. On January 2004, the LPF project started working in the site to challenge the local communities and stakeholders to find the means to resolve these new problems.
