Philippines

Working to promote healthy ecosystems for human well-being in one of the biodiversity-richest countries in the world

The Philippines include some of the world’s most important marine and terrestrial ecosystems — the remaining strongholds of globally important biodiversity in a country whose natural resources are facing pressures brought about by weak land use planning, industrialization and unsustainable or destructive resource use practices. These are forests that ensure the flow of water to rivers that irrigate farmlands, trees that sequester carbon from the atmosphere, seas that provide food to millions and coastal areas that generate livelihoods.
