Capacity Building for Wetlands Conservation
Increasing capacity of local communities to sustain wetland conservation activities in the Laguna de Bay Region and Marikina-Pasig River Watershed

The project aimed to increase the capacity of local organizations to take actions for wetland conservation which will directly translate into managing natural and human-made disasters and help in implementing climate change mitigation and adaptation measures.  It took a different route from the usual intervention that directly train people on actual measures by dealing instead with a more basic organizational aspect.  This refers to the organizational capacity to access resources and how to manage them efficiently and effectively to come up with the desired outcome which is a resilient and climate change-proof environment.
