APPLY FOR GRANTS
IEC and Awareness Campaign for the Sustainable Resource Management at the Critical Watersheds of the Sierra Madre’s Palali-Mamparang Mountain Range
Build on the successes of a previous CEPF-supported project that established alliances needed to manage the watersheds in the Sierra Madre’s Palali-Mamparang Mountains by supporting increased awareness among local government, communities, and the private sector regarding the environmental and economic value of the area.
Support the pilot phase of Equator Ventures, a partnership initiative with UNDP's Equator Initiative. Implement loan and technical assistance packages to small- to medium-sized enterprises benefiting biodiversity and local communities, and monitor biodiversity results.
Enhancement of Educational Park as Reforestation Training Center (Phase II)
Train local communities on proper restoration and reforestation techniques and advocate for Palawan’s biodiversity conservation through popular education.
Mt Irid-Mt Angilo Proposed Protected Area Advocacy Project
Establish a permanent Irid-Angilo protected area and strengthen the awareness of the major stakeholders in the southern portion of the Sierra Madre biodiversity conservation corridor. Educational campaigns and environmental advocacy will be used to further encourage the major stakeholders to participate in efforts to conserve the corridor.
Establishing an Educational Nature Park to Build Local Capacity for Restoring Wild Habitats
Create an educational park where local communities and conservationists will learn how to restore natural forests and streams, while gaining awareness of the need to conserve Palawan's biodiversity. An estimated 5,000 native trees and shrubs will be planted in the course of the project.
Building a Global Constituency for Biodiversity Conservation
Implement a series of targeted public awareness and education campaigns in nine hotspots in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Campaign leaders participate in an intensive training course at the UK's Kent University or Mexico's Guadalajara University, prepare detailed plans to implement campaigns, link with a local organization in their region and commit to a minimum two years with that organization.
Launching of the PBCPP Products and the National Geographic July 2002 Issue
Organize an event to launch the results and products from the Philippine Biodiversity Conservation Priority-setting Program (PBCPP), including a final report, map and a CD-ROM. Include a presentation on the Network for Nature, which is the mechanism that will ensure that the PBCPP's results will be implemented.
