PROJECT AREAS

 

The Project will cover provinces and municipalities surrounding marine biodiversity corridors of national and global importance as identified by the Philippine Biodiversity Conservation Priorities. Four “extremely high” priority biodiversity corridors were selected: (i) the Babuyan corridor along the northern coast of Luzon joining the Pacific Ocean and South China Sea, (ii) the Ticao Pass–San Bernardino Strait–Samar Sea corridor, (iii) the Daanbantayan corridor straddling the Visayas Sea and the Tanon Strait, and (iv) the Pujada Bay corridor, an important point of convergence for bioregions of the Pacific Ocean and the Celebes Sea. Two more areas of “very high” to “high” priority marine biodiversity significance near to marine corridors were selected: (i) the Zambales marine ecosystem in the Luzon Sea, and (ii) the Siquijor small-island marine ecosystem between the Bohol Sea and Sulu Sea.

IMPACT AND OUTCOME


The expected impact of the Project is enhanced coastal resources. The expected outcomes are sustainable management of coastal resources and increased income for coastal communities.


OUTPUTS

 

The Project comprises four components: component A: policy and institutional strengthening and development; component B: ICRM and biodiversity conservation; component C: enterprise development and income diversification, and component D: social and environmental services and facilities.
