Summary

This project aims to support indigenous children and elderlies outplant endemic forest and fruit trees parcel by parcel in their disintegrating forest cover brought about by burning grass and trees for pasture use. They target to cover at least a hectare per year or more as soon as other community members will join them in replanting activities to prevent erosion and flood that put them at high risks for physical damage both for themselves, their food farms, houses, rising local temperature

Challenge

The watershed area forest cover called Bago by the indigenous tribe of Bayabas Village Malibcong Abra in Northern Philippines has decreased causing floods and soil erosion. Villagers in search for food and fodder area burn grasses yearly killing shrubs, forest and fruit trees in the belief that grass for pasture grows again after burning. Birds, wild animals are disappearing including species for herbal medicines and wild trees. River waters are reduced for irrigation and domestic use

Solution

The village local government will sustain their resolution banning forest burning and declaration of the watershed area as protected. With no concrete reforestation activity implemented, the community members will take the reforestation initiative by planting naturally growing and applicable tree and fruit species to 1 hectare per year or parcel to parcel approach. SIBAT will provide technical support by watershed mapping, agroforest training, monitoring and assist demand for gov't support

Long-Term Impact

Increased forest cover and restoration of wild fruit tree species such as berries and wild trees. Return of wild animals and birds. Minimized flooding and avert soil erosion. More river waters for paddy rice production, vegetables and backyard animals for adequate food and income for families. Enough water to sustain existing microhydro power for lighting and powering post harvest machineries and tools for livelihood use. Increased carbon sink area and reduce increasing local temperature.
