Protecting and Investing in Natural Capital in Asia and the Pacific: Sustainable Livelihood Assessment - Caraga Region, Philippines

Consultants' Reports | July 2021

This study is part of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR)- Asian Development Bank (ADB)/Global Environment Facility (GEF) Project on Combating Organized Environmental Crime in the Philippines, and investigated the trade of wildlife species in the biodiversity hotspot of Caraga Region, particularly in Barangays Mahaba and Puting Bato in Cabadbaran City, Agusan del Norte. The said trade has been suspected to be carried out in an unsustainable and illegal manner, which is why a baseline observation of the key players, the trade activities, the local supply chain, the species harvested, and the economics involved was conducted, to determine the livelihood options compatible with the management of wildlife in the two barangays. 

Consultants' reports describe activities by a consultant or group of consultants related to preparing a technical assistance project.
