To provide tools for decision-makers and stake- holders to better integrate environmental knowledge with technical and institutional innovations to enhance the management of natural resources at the local government level.
1. Conduct an in-depth analysis of current methods in Lantapan's NRM planning, assess its impact to the local government's development and investment planning and policymaking, as well as, the participa- tion of the municipal and village-level governments in the implementation of the plan. 2. Scale-up the Lantapan model to other munici- palities surrounding MKRNP in Bukidnon. This means directly assisting and coaching LGUs in developing their own NRM plans. 3. Analyze, evaluate, assess and compare the performance of the NRM model in these different municipalities and develop these into modules that serve as decision-support to LGUs in pursuing local NRM planning and implementation.
