Dubbed as “FPE@21: Looking Back… Moving Forward”, this year’s National Regional Advisory Committee (RAC) – Partners Meetings on May 20-23, 2013 at La Breza Hotel, Quezon City, provides an opportunity to assess FPE’s work to shape the future direction of the Foundation and become a more relevant grant-maker, resource mobilizer, catalyst for cooperation and facilitator of information exchange for biodiversity conservation and sustainable development (BCSD) in the country.
FPE has created one RAC each for Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao to serve as FPE’s link in the regions and to advise the Board of Trustees on policies, programs and governance. Each RAC is composed of 15 members from different civil society organizations.
The national RAC-Partners Meeting brings together the RAC members to meet the trustees and project partners. More importantly, it will unify them into a single governance body that will hopefully provide recommendations to the Board on how the regional and national environmental agenda could be enhanced and effectively implemented.
