Enhancing local policymakers’ capacity in environmental governance in the Philippines
in Knowledge, democracy and action

The forest land in the province of Bukidnon, Philippines, is continuously declining in terms of its economic and environmental capacity. Acosta called on the government and challenged the academy and other agencies to be more aggressive about measuring the efficacy of government programmes and policies on a range of environmental concerns. Collaborative efforts among the academy, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and local government units (LGUs) have to be pursued to achieve good environmental management in local governance, economic growth and to prevent further damage to environment and natural resources. Bukidnon State University (BSU) Institute of Environmental Governance (IEG) was established to carry out programmes aimed at providing the needed capacity for local executives and local policymakers to better perform their mandate as provided under the Local Government Code.
