Development Partners Need Collaborative Learning to Protect the Environment


Closer collaboration among development partners is needed to ensure the sustainability, scalability, and replicability of coastal and marine conservation programs, according to representatives of multilateral financial institutions (MFIs) who visited the Philippines recently. Representatives of MFIs went on a field visit to Nasugbu, Batangas on 18–19 October 2013 to observe three marine protected areas in Hamilo Coast established through a public–private partnership with the developer of Pico de Loro Beach Resort. The field visit—organized by ADB and WWF-Philippines—came on the heels of the fall meeting of the MFI Working Group on Environment held 16–18 October at the ADB headquarters.
