2007-48: Collaboration among an academic Institution, Local communities, and local government units in protecting wildlife and forest habitats in Southwestern Negros Island, Philippines

A community-based forest resource protection program was established in Cauayan and its adjacent areas in southwestern Negros from 2001-2007. The program was preceded by research done by an academic institution, the results of which were used as a basis for establishing the Cauayan watershed reserve, a 6,000ha area that includes the forests of two barangays (villages), Pinamayan and Inayawan. This paper presents the process employed in establishing a community-based forest protection program and some strategies used to mitigate illegal activities, to improve biodiversity awareness among the stakeholders, and to promote community and local government participation.
