Land-based sectors in the Philippines are affected by institutional
weaknesses in various ways, including overlapping and conflicting
policies, laws and programmes, a lack of reform in public land
management and inadequate funding for urban development, disaster
mitigation and climate change. Land governance has thus been given
paramount importance in recent years. However, security of tenure
for all remains a challenge as the existing institutional set-up fails
to respond to the needs of people in the land, fisheries and forestry
sectors. In response to this, the Government decided to mainstream the
Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure (VGGT)
on Land, Fisheries and Forests in order to improve land governance and
expand it beyond the land sector. The project contributed to improving
the capacity of the Government to provide good land governance
by updating the Land Sector Development Framework (LSDF) in line
with VGGT principles and guidelines, and by increasing awareness of
these principles and guidelines in the fisheries sector.
