Protected Area Development and Management
This program covers the main in-situ measures to conserve biodiversity within and adjacent to protected areas. It will ensure that the current NIPAS coverage is rationalized by retaining and prioritizing those with high biodiversity values while providing appropriate governance regime for the protection of Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs) such as through Local Conservation Areas (LCAs) with the LGU concerned and through Indigenous Community Conserved Areas (ICCAs). This program will directly contribute to SDG target 15.2 which is to promote the implementation of sustainable management of all types of forests, halt deforestation, restore degraded forests and substantially increase afforestation and reforestation.
