Public-private partnerships for improved reforestation outcomes in the Philippines uri icon

abstract

  • In 2011, the Philippines implemented the National Greening Program (NGP), which aims to reforest all degraded areas in the Philippines, approximately 7.1 million hectares, by 2028. The NGP includes a harmonization strategy to coordinate with the wide range of stakeholders involved in reforestation, which may help to overcome some challenges experienced by earlier programs. This case report discusses the experience of one peopleĆ¢??s organization inside a protected area to assess various impacts of the public-private partnership with a geothermal company, and outlines how the harmonization strategy may help achieve the national target not only in terms of area contributions, but also by improving the outcomes of community-based efforts
