Gaynawaan Project: Towards the Preservation, Rehabilitation and Development of the Arakan Valley Conservation Area
The project aims to address the conservation and protection of forest remnants within Arakan valley Conservation area in Cotabato Province, which is a natural habitat of the endangered Philippine eagle.
The problems of the land conversion (forestland into farmlands) poverty and forest degradation are among the problems to be addressed by the project. Community-based conservation strategy will help the indigenous communities and non-IPs help themselves by catalyzing sustainable development through community forestry and receive the ecological functions of barren landscapes. Project will establish habitat corridors for wildlife dispersal and as viable source of livelihood, thus meeting both wildlife and human needs.
