Project Goals and Objectives
To enable Ikalahan community leaders to effectively and efficiently manage their ancestral domain and forest resources as well as review and refine policies and regulations that would go into improving each Cluster Management Area.
Outputs and Outcomes
The communities have been confronted with local development projects found to be incompatible with sustainable natural resource management practices. The ADSSP was needed to enable Ikalahan community leaders to efficiently and effectively manage their ancestral domain and forest resources as well as review and refine policies and regulations that would go into improving each Cluster Management Area. The project provided a venue for CADT holders and community leaders to be updated on emerging local and national issues relevant o their future. During the AD Summit, participants discussed policies related to Indigenous Community Conservation Areas. Climate Change/REDD Plus. CADT Eco-Tourism Landscape, Alternative Livelihood Development, and EO 23, among others. Local and national issues discussed were mining, road widening, incursion/poaching, and ancestral land alineation. A strategic plan was prepared focusing on capacity building; paralegal training for IP leaders; organization and planning of the Ancestral Domain Development Council; alternative livelihood development; and a project development workshop.
