  • After recognizing the importance of mangrove forests in Palawan, the government initiated the National Greening Program from 2011 to 2019.
  • While the program didn’t reach its full growth potential, the 135.5 hectares successfully planted did play a role in a broader increase in mangrove cover.
  • The communities are seeing an increase in natural regeneration and improvements in fish catches as a result.
