DescriptionThis project addresses the priorities of the Philippine National Biodiversity Action Plan (NBSAP), the Philippine Marine Policy, and the Philippine Agenda 21. It also complements past and existing Philippine coastal resources management projects, such as the Coastal Environment Program in coordination with the National Integrated Protected Areas System, the Coastal Resources Management Program, and the Central Visayas Regional Project-I (CVRP-I) and II. This project also complements regional/international initiatives in which the Philippines is actively participating, such as the Jakarta Mandate on Marine and Coastal Biodiversity under the Convention on Biodiversity, International Coral Reef Initiative, Coastal Zone Environment and Resource Management Project, ASEAN Marine Science Program, UNDP/GEF/IMO Regional Program on the Prevention and Management of Marine Pollution in the East ASEAN, and the International Protected Seascape System.
Implementation StatusSince the Project was operationally closed in June 2007, this quarter was spent in accomplishing project closure requirements and processes such as inventory of equipment and development of asset disposition plan. Meetings between the Foundation for Philippine Environment (FPE) and the Project Coordinator were also done to discuss the smooth turn-over of the Project to FPE. FPE also facilitated the hiring of the new Executive Director for the Padayon Bohol Marine Triangle Management Office to sustain the project’s implementation.
