Assisting Professional (AP) for Infrastructure Works

I. Background

The Department of Environment of Natural Resources (DENR) through the National Forest Development Office (NFDO) implemented the Forestry Sector Project (FSP) Phase 1 in 1993 until the end of 2003 with financial assistance from the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC). The FSP has adopted Community-Based Forest Management (CBFM) as a main strategy towards Sustainable Forest Management (SFM).

Recognizing the significant accomplishment of FSP 1, a second phase of the FSP was conceptualized in 2003 to implement participatory sustainable watershed management and improve the economic condition and quality of life of the upland dwellers and downstream communities in three (3) critical river basins- the Upper Magat and Cagayan in Ifugao (CAR), Nueva Vizcaya and Quirino (Region 2), Upper Pampanga in Nueva Ecija (Region 3), and Jalaur in Iloilo (Region 6).

However, the subsequent implementation of FSP 2 was delayed for almost a decade since its conceptualization in 2003 due to policy, institutional and economic changes and setbacks both from the recipient country and the funding agency. Finally, in March 2012 the Government of the Philippines (GOP) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) signed a loan agreement for the ten (10) year implementation of the former FSP 2 now the Forestland Management Project (FMP) within the aforecited river basins. The Project aims to improve forestland management through collaborative and holistic implementation of comprehensive and sustainable forestland management strategies in the three (3) critical river basins. The Project likewise complements the current National Greening Program (NGP) and focuses on Comprehensive Site Development (CSD) which include: 1) Survey, Mapping and Planning (SMP); 2) Community Organizing (CO); 3) Site Development (SD); 4) Agroforestry Support Facilities (ASF); 5) Policy Initiative; 6) Monitoring and Evaluation; 7) Project Management and Supervision (PMS).
