About this project
Under the Biodiversity Focal Area, the project will support Strategic Objective (SO) 1: Improving the sustainability of protected area systems and SO-2: Mainstreaming biodiversity conservation and sustainable use into production landscapes, seascapes, and sectors. The project will generate global benefits by leveraging community-based efforts to conserve biodiversity through improving the effectiveness and sustainability of community PAs, an important part of PhilippinesÔÇÖs nationwide system of PAs. To support sustainable use of biodiversity, the project will promote the mainstreaming of biodiversity conservation objectives into agriculture, forest and fishery management practices in production land and seascapes (PLS), through measures such as organic certification for community level and small-scale producers of biodiversity dependent products, improved community-based resource use of non-timber forest products, and community level enforcement measures in near shore fisheries. While capacity development is not an explicit objective of this project, the activities in support of Biodiversity SO-1 and SO2 will also help to strengthen the capacities of civil society and community-based organizations, which is consistent with the GEFÔÇÖs long-standing support for strengthening the role of civil society in conservation.
Global environmental benefits secured through community-based biodiversity conservation initiatives and actions in selected priority sites in the Philippines.
