CI’s work in Mt. Mantalingahan Protected Landscape aims to demonstrate how ecosystem services benefit humanity and how protected area management that values and protects nature’s assets supports human well-being.
Our goal is to maintain the ecological processes within Mt. Mantalingahan Protected Landscape through the development and implementation of an integrated plan to effectively manage watersheds, ancestral domains, and community-based conserved areas, as well as by securing long-term, stable financing.
Target interventions in MMPL include:
securing capitalization for endowment fund
capacity building for protected area managers
conservation agreements with tenured occupants in critical watersheds to enhance local community welfare while conserving protected area resources
climate change mitigation and adaptation
