DescriptionMt. Isarog has a unusually high concentration of biological diversity and due to its geographical isolation it accounts for a a large number of endemic species. However there is a depletion in the biodiversity due to various reasons. The project seeks long-term impact on the biodiversity loss by tackling not just the immediate threats of forest loss but also its key threats.
Implementation StatusThe project was operationally closed in May 2005. In September 2007, a Memorandum of Agreement was forged between the Implementing Agency, CARE-Philippines and Haribon Foundation to utilize the remaining fund balance of the Project for the packaging and publishing of at least 5 relevant knowledge products on biodiversity resulting from the implementation of UNDP-GEF projects including the Mt.
