Gender Equity and Mainstreaming No gender elements

The coastal zone in many coastal regions of the Philippines is beset with problems of inadequate resource management, degradation of aquatic resources and water quality, and pollution. The project aims to adopt an integrated approach to promote sustainable management of the coastal resources and related ecosystem, conserve coastal resources, control land-based pollution and siltation and reduce the extensive poverty in coastal areas by providing opportunities for increasing income and improving living standards of coastal communities and upland communities adjacent to the coastal areas.

The Project scope will include activities to (i) promote community-based integrated coastal resource management, conserve coastal resources and ecosystem and control land-based pollution and siltation; (ii) increase incomes and improve the living conditions of poor coastal communities and upland communities adjacent to the coastal areas through provision of income-augmenting opportunities and necessary social infrastructure; and (iii) strengthen the capabilities of communities, community development organizations, and agencies of the National Government and the local governments concerned in coastal resource management and social development.
