SU 2006-02: A Mayor and His Politics for Marine Protected Areas: A Case Study in the Political Anthropology of Environmentalist Disclosure

The local politics is significantly intertwined with the social and cultural life of the Filipinos that is seen to be maladaptive when local governance benefits only a constituency identified by political affinity. This paper presents a case study in the political anthropology of environmentalist discourse on the mayoralty politics for the MPAs. Thus, political reality requires that any attempt to investigate the development and management of MPAs, specifically in the Philippines, have first to understand the local political actors, culture and dynamics. In the case of the municipality of Dauin, CRM program is successful because they were able to demonstrate a form of environmentalism or a will to act for nature protection and conservation that had also a political goal that drove individual or group action.
