Geography of Governance 2019: Visioning Probable Futures for Landscape Governance

Let’s talk about our changing landscapes.

Government agencies, civil society organizations, academic institutions, and youth organizations from Sierra Madre, Palawan, and Bukidnon-Misamis Oriental will come together for the 2nd National Environmental Dialogue on August 1-2, at Novotel, Quezon City.

This year’s dialogue strategy includes visioning exercises where participants will draw from their experiences and aspirations to plan for the futures of our landscapes. Participants will talk about drivers of change and threats to our landscapes, and envision what can still be done to adapt, and to prepare for generations ahead. Specifically, the dialogues will focus on natural resource management and devolution; water provisioning functions of landscapes; and land conversion. 

Sustainable and Inclusive Landscape Governance Philippines (SILG PH) is a program implemented by Forest Foundation Philippines, together with Tropenbos International and several civil society organizations. SILG PH banks on opportunities that can emerge out of continuous dialogues, which can span from small intervention projects to policy reviews and advocacies.
