Environmental Law Enforcement in Coastal Areas
From the manual: "Surrounding our archipelago’s 7,100-plus islands are seas incredibly rich with marine life and other economic resources –the world’s 'center of the center of marine shorefish biodiversity' in the Verde Island passage, and 'the heart of the Coral Triangle', in the Sulu-Sulawesi corridor.
And although our laws for the protection of these resources have been described internationally as excellent, weak enforcement has been a cause for concern. The DENR has thus been mobilizing local government units and the citizenry for the protection, conservation and management of coastal and marine resources. This participatory approach requires that LGUs and citizens possess not just motivation, also the pertinent knowhow. With this in mind, this Manual on Environmental Law Enforcement in Coastal and Marine Areas was developed with contributions from other government agencies enforcing environmental laws."
