This briefing contains findings of ecosystem accounts that use a "ridge-to-reef" approach to assess the upland, lowland, and coastal zones of southern Palawan, Pulot Watershed and coastal areas of Sofronio Espanola in the Philippines.
A pilot ecosystem account was developed for the Laguna de Bay, to provide science-based information for flood control, water, and fishery resource management; to identify priority areas for protection, regulation of pollution and sediment loading; and to inform on possibilities for water pricing and greening of development planning.
The ecosystem account for Southern Palawan in the Philippines is useful in providing valuable information in the management and use of these resources, and as a guide for decision-making, conflict resolution and development planning.
