SU 2003-04: National and Local Agency Roles in Coastal Management Activities in the Philippines

The Philippine Local Government Code of 1991 devolves most coastal management authority to the 832 coastal municipalities in the country. Effective devolution requires that both central government and local government address key issues of authority, capacity, management of resources, commitment of management officials, how coordination will be structured, and what mechanisms will be established to ensure accountability. The available evidence suggests that central and local government officials have effectively addressed some, but not all, these issues.
