Bottlenecks and recommended actions: stakeholder perspectives from Regions III, VII and XI uri icon

abstract

  • As part of CIFORâ??s regional research project â??Review of forest rehabilitation: Lessons from the pastâ?�, workshops were held in the three study regions, Region III (Central Luzon), Region VII (Central Visayas) and Region XI (Davao) in October 2003. These workshops provided a platform for stakeholders to share their experiences and perspectives on key forest rehabilitation 1 problems and issues. The workshop in Region III also served as a national workshop. Each workshop had 16-27 participants. Participants came from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), local government units (LGU), the private sector, non-government organisations (NGO), â??peopleâ??s organisationsâ?? (PO) or the community, and other government agencies (OGA) such as the Philippine National Oil Company and the National Power Corporation (Table 1). In Regions VII and XI, participants divided into working groups to discuss issues of concern and make recommendations to improve and sustain the rehabilitation efforts of different sectors. In the national workshop, only government representatives from Region III discussed issues pertinent to that region
