Durham, N.C.: Duke University Press. Leucaena: Promising Forage and Tree Crop for the Tropics. The gradual expansion of home gardens, ruminant livestock production, and plantation and timber tree crops will contribute to this end. ests are valuable for fuel (charcoal) and thatch. The results obtained with other alley cropping systems on acidic Ultisols in Peru (Fernandes, 1990) and in Sumatra, Indonesia (Evensen, 1989), support the results obtained in Mindanao by IRRI. Implementation of a successful community forestry program will be an immense organizational task that will require a strong commitment by the forest occupants and upland farmers. Both of these factors must be considered together, along with rural poverty and the open-access nature of forests (Gillis, 1988). 409–429 in International Symposium on Distribution, Characterization, and Utilization of Problem Soils. Logging increased rapidly after 1945 and was back to pre-World War II production levels by 1949 (Poblacion, 1959; Tamesis, 1948). Manila: Bureau of Printing. An important activity in developing an instrument of land tenure should be the formulation of a management plan than contains flexible but comprehensive mechanisms for allocating land among the. Because the problems transcend national boundaries, stronger international mechanisms that provide efficient research and development support to the respective nations are needed. Grassland areas are flammable after only 1 rainless day. Concessionaires have not, in general, engaged in protection of secondary forests, enrichment planting, or reforestation (Food and Agriculture Organization and United Nations Environment Program, 1982). Ready to take your reading offline? The development of post-war Philippine land reform: Political and sociological explanations. 1981. Rome, Italy: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Advances Agron. It is also evident, however, that if the current upland populations cannot become more successful in sustaining their incomes and increasing their employment opportunities, more farmers and their families will be forced to migrate from unproductive farms that can no longer support them, resulting in more rapid and destructive misuse of forestlands. Backyard ruminant production will stimulate more intensive husbandry of manure. By creating pedestrian-only areas, highly accessible walkways, transit stops and terminals, we provide abundant opportunities for walking and commuting. Garrity, D. P. 1989. J. 7. The country has a complex geology and physiography. come an incentive to practice conservation farming methods and to be a good steward of the land. Two major problems have surfaced from the use of grass strips. Conservation districts are created through a referendum involving all occupants of the land. Savonen, C. 1990. This is an example of sacrificing short-term financial benefits for a long-term and sustainable tourism development. We contribute to nation building and create value for the entire community through various ventures such as prioritizing local hiring, investing in skills training in the areas we develop and operate, and allocating spaces in our malls for homegrown businesses to prosper. The ecologic balance has been lost, and national awareness of the dire implications of this loss is only beginning to emerge. 1990. Mechanized logging is skewed toward once-over extraction of the 150-plus-year-old virgin trees, with a return harvest expected after some 30 to 100 years, assuming that. 1981. The book presents case studies of good practice on sustainable urban development from 12 Asian countries: Bangladesh, Cambodia, People's Republic of China, India, Indonesia, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Viet Nam. Geneva: International Labour Office. Because of low profitability and high interest rates, private firms are hesitant to invest their own corporate funds to establish industrial tree plantations (Domingo, 1983; Guiang, 1981). The plan articulates a people-oriented forestry program that is sensitive to the current understanding of the complex underlying determinants of deforestation. The Philippines is one of the signatories to the historic Agenda 21 and was the first country to establish a National Council for Sustainable Development. In 2017, we announced an ambitious target of achieving carbon neutrality by 2022 for our commercial properties. CSC holders are obligated to use conservation farming practices, plant at least five trees per hectare, and assist in protecting adjacent forest areas. 1989. Institutional mechanisms and project structures need to be evolved to make it feasible for the forestry and agricultural sectors to jointly participate in common research and extension work. The watershed is the natural unit on which to base a systems research effort because of the interconnected nature of all land uses. The land frontier that had always existed as a safety valve for poor and dispossessed people has disappeared during the present generation. The speed of implementation of ISFP has been disappointing. The most immediate need is for the delineation of the ancestral domains by survey teams, so that a common basis of understanding exists between the national government and the communities (Lynch and Talbot, 1988) and so that communities can exercise effective control over their domains. Rainforests are rapidly being cleared in the humid tropics to keep pace with food demands, economic needs, and population growth. The strongly acidic, infertile soils, which are low in available phosphorus, are predominant. In Results of the Forest Resources Inventory Project, C.V.Gulmatico, ed. Animals would be distributed to farmers who have succeeded in installing hedgerows that contribute to conservation practices. The equitable capture of income from the limited harvest of forest products will be crucial to financing this transition. As of 2019, we are on the right track as we have already reduced our net emissions by 72%, equivalent to 202,296 t-CO2e. Manila: Philippine Institute for Development Studies. Migration to and from the National Capital Region: 1975–1980. Tenure encompasses human populations and their relationship to the land. The forestry sector must engage in forestry for the benefit of the land and the people, and the agricultural sector must do the same, thereby creating sustainable upland farming and forestry. Although substantial differences persist among some areas, the population has become more evenly distributed since 1948 (Herrin, 1985). 215–250 in Agricultural Development in Asia, R. T. Shand, ed. National Economic Council. Developing community leadership to manage the process was an essential and often difficult process. The remaining forested areas are generally the secondary forest remnants of previous logging activities or localized unlogged areas, which are found at the highest elevations and on the steepest slopes. A major priority of national and international support must be to strengthen NGOs. During the years between now and then, judicious international assistance in research, training, policy, and financing will be critical. Crop Sci. Therefore, the economic disparity between the irrigated and rainfed rice fields increased (Otsuka et al., 1990). In addition, high rates of migration to the uplands continued in the 1980s (World Bank, 1989a). Landless Peasants and Rural Poverty in Indonesia and the Philippines . The lack of secure land tenure was implicated as a constraint to the implementation of this or any long-term land improvement system among tenant farmers or occupants of public lands. Alferez (1980) observed a 56 percent yield increase when upland rice was grown in alleys between hedgerows of Leucaena. More rice crops were produced each year (two instead of one), and more intensive management was applied. Logged forests are more likely than primary forests to be penetrated by roads, and roads greatly facilitated the expansion of agriculture (Asian Development Bank, 1976; Edgerton, 1983; Food and, TABLE 8 Annual Rates of Deforestation in the Philippines Between 1980 and 1987 Based on Different Forest Inventories. 1992. 1974. Although it encompasses more than 7,000 islands, the majority of these are insignificant in terms of size and population. 1976. Phosphorus pumping from the deeper soil layers is limited by subsoils with toxic levels of aluminum and low phosphorus reserves. The exploitation of phosphate rocks for farm use has been neglected and could be expedited. Quezon City, Philippines: Ateneo de Manila University Press. Arable land that can be sustainably farmed on an annual basis with minimal investment in land conservation covers 8.4 million ha, or 28 percent of the country (Bureau of Soils, 1977). But there are major CGIAR initiatives in forestry (Center for International Forestry Research) and agroforestry (the Southeast Asian regional program of the International Centre for Agroforestry Research). Vergara (1982) cited experiments in which yields increased by about 100 percent, with no advantage of inorganic nitrogen application beyond the nitrogen supplied by green leaf manure. Given the exceptionally high production and marketing risks in the uplands and the generally low marginal returns, a number of alternative enterprises must be undertaken on upland farms to provide stability (Chambers, 1986) and to take maximum advantage of the complementarities that occur among income-generating activities (for example, leguminous trees for fodder, green leaf manure, and fuelwood; cattle for labor, cash income, and manure). Trade and Growth in the Philippines. B. Doolette. are found in the more relatively accessible sloping areas that are closest to the lowlands and nearest to roads. The relationship between logging and the conditions of primary and secondary forests is a dynamic one. Land tenure is the dominant barrier to more productive management of the lands on which coconut is grown. It applies a farming systems perspective to the land use system, targeting the land management unit within the context of its biophysical and socioeconomic environments and emphasizes the ecosystem as the starting point of problem analysis and research design (Figure 7). 8. Wernstedt, F. L., and J. E. Spencer. FARMI Newsletter. Department of Environment and Natural Resources. “Brushland” was not counted as “forest.”, c Official data were based on continuous updating of earlier estimates of inventory data, including older aerial photos. ACIAR Proceedings Series 6. Poor people are forced to engage in subsistence agriculture because it is often the only option available (Gwyer, 1978). Manila, Philippines: Department of Environment and Natural Resources. Working Paper 84–03. The social value of these lands, however, is greatly constrained by government land use policy and a regressive pattern of formal and informal land tenure. Dar, W. D., and R. R. Bayaca. Retention of surface residues through conservation tillage systems is unexploited, although the value of such practices in reducing soil erosion is profound on tropical sloping uplands (Lal, 1990). Philippine J. The high relief, the relatively high levels of precipitation, and the frequent extreme concentration of rainfall in short periods because of typhoons contribute to serious soil erosion problems. Vandermeer, C. 1963. Bureau of Forestry. Rapid population growth in the past half century is widely acknowledged as a major force in the accelerated deterioration in the country 's natural resources (Porter and Ganapin, 1988). Restrictions on the available phosphorus also tend to be pronounced in calcareous soils. Associated with this has been a 50 percent decline in the size of the national cattle herd during this 15-year period. Regardless of the current conditions, it remains the most anticipated season among Filipinos. 1989. National actions are grounded in laws to ensure robustness. Kutztown, Pa.: Rodale Institute. Under these conditions, agricultural technologists must be able to offer practical, low-cost farming practices that are viable under a wide array of conditions or that are more specifically tailored to a few conditions but that produce results quickly. They may be established at the time that a piece of fallow land is brought into cultivation or during the interval between crops in a continuous cropping system. 1990. This course introduces the origin and key concepts of sustainability and how to apply those to sustainable development practice. Multiple Cropping Research in the Philippines. Washington, D.C.: U.S. Government Printing Office. 1953. Between the smallest and largest rates of deforestation, the difference is more than 200 percent. An Economic Survey of the Pacific Area. Garrote, B. P., A. Mercado, and D. P. Garrity. The total land area of the Philippines is approximately 30 million ha. Coconut trees occupy much of the steepest nonarable land at lower elevations. In the best case scenario, it is assumed that the master plan will be largely successful. The rate of forest destruction declined abruptly—by 92 percent—as the cooperatives began policing their zones, and it remained at only 100 ha annually through 1989. The precise instrument by which secure tenure should be granted, however, may have to vary somewhat for different communities. Indigenous communities will have secure control of their ancestral lands. However, these will be accompanied by much stricter enforcement of sustainable forestry practices, making the threat of cancellation solely contingent on quantifiable performance standards. 1988. The Master Plan for Forestry Development (Department of Environment and Natural Resources, 1990) is an appropriate starting point for anticipating future land use scenarios in the Philippine uplands. 35–38 in Proceedings of the Symposium on Biological Resources and National Development, E. Soepadmo and K. G. Singh, eds. Subsequent legislation further eroded the rights of occupant families to the land on which they lived. Westoby, J. Sustainable land use systems research. As Hackenberg and Hackenberg (1971) pointed out in their study of Davao City, Mindanao, “The basis of wealth is lumber, and the profits are instantaneous for those with political connections to secure a concession” (p. 8). Manila: Bureau of Printing. What should be done about the grasslands? Table 4 notes the relationships among deforestation, increases in population, and increases in the amount of farmland. The will of the people and government to effectively address the Philippine deforestation problem is growing, but it is still weak. Agricultural output and productivity did increase, but the area under cultivation also increased considerably. Sustainability in Alley Cropping Systems The sustainability of crop yields in alley cropping systems is a major concern on all soil types. The watershed framework ensures that the social, economic, and political linkages between upstream and downstream lands are not neglected in the analyses (Magrath and Doolette, 1990). Environ. NOTE: The area of forest cover in 1948 was assumed to be 150,000 km2. Therefore, the national government must make provisions for local governments to receive alternative sources of income. The plan articulates a people-oriented forestry program that is sensitive to the current understanding of the complex underlying determinants of deforestation. The bunds provided a base for the establishment of double-contour hedgerows of leguminous trees or forage grasses and a barrier to surface runoff, which is carried off the field in contour ditches. Therefore, a critical consideration in an assessment of future scenarios of forestry and agriculture in the Philippine upland ecosystem must include accurate prediction of trends in the political economy. Research status on management and utilization of acid soils in the Philippines. Manila, Philippines: Ateneo de Manila University Press. 1–7 in On-Farm Research Notes, Vol. This concept offered the possibility of more diversified sources of farm income and improved soil erosion control. NOTE: Ref, net reforestation (area is established and viable); Def, net deforestation (net loss of natural forest cover). Perennial and tree cropping systems will be common enterprises and will be integrated with livestock and food crop production. Long-term security is essential to engendering a sustainable management perspective among private forest managers. Upland rice cultivation using leguminous tree hedgerows on strongly acid soils. Twentieth century settlement of Mindanao. Mapping of the Natural Conditionsof the Philippines. The World Resources Institute (1990) estimated that deforestation is about 143,000 ha/year. Manila, Philippines: Ateneo de Manila University Press. The technologies needed to meet these needs are known. Although the rate of growth of the Philippine population declined slowly from the 1948 –1960 period to the 1975–1980 period, the population growth rate remains the highest of any country in Southeast Asia. Upland rice cultivation using leguminous tree hedgerows on strongly acid soils. Within the past several years, the Department of Agriculture has reoriented its priorities to give much greater attention to upland agriculture. 1988. The land classification of 1919 estimated that grassland covered 19 percent of the country, a figure that stayed roughly constant through 1957 (Roth, 1983). The relationships among the expansion of agriculture, the creation of secondary forests, and deforestation are also dynamic. Kikuchi, M., and Y. Hayami. Mercado, A., Jr., A. Montecalvo, D. P. Garrity, and I. H. Basri. FIGURE 3 Terrace formation and crop growth in a contour hedgerow system of upland rice and leguminous trees on strongly acidic Oxisol soils. Although they are illegal, these claims result in nominal tax revenues for local governments, which otherwise have very limited sources of income. As the first developer in the country to aim for carbon neutrality, we are setting revolutionary benchmarks that we hope will become a standard for sustainable development programs in the Philippines. Persisting and Changing Patterns of Population Redistribution in the Philippines. Cornista, L. B., and E. F. Escueta. Previous efforts to establish dipterocarp forests have generally failed, but there have been a few cases of dipterocarp forest survival on plantations (Department of Environment and Natural Resources, 1990). For decades, Ayala Land has been dedicated to preserving the environment and forwarding sustainable development in the Philippines. The system involves a crop sequence of three crops of maize monoculture per year but only one primary tillage operation annually. Schade, J. The cost and political risks from embarking on a vigorous population control program will necessitate strong and sustained international support. Cruz, M. C., and I. Zosa-Feranil. animal labor. Effective independence for the cultivator will depend, however, on the infrastructure and support services that will make it possible to earn a viable living from the land without the patronage of landlords.

The evolution of permanent, mixed agricultural systems in a pioneer community in the mountains of Laguna province dominated by shifting cultivation was documented by Fujisaka (1986) and Fujisaka and Wollenburg (1991). The issue from policy, research, and extension perspectives is how to enable the farm enterprise to move profitably along a trajectory that will continually increase the area devoted to perennial plants and decrease the area devoted to annual plants (Figure 5). Manila, Philippines: U.S. Agency for International Development. Greater private and public sector support for the development of these enterprises will be essential. 6:86–105. Has the limited effectiveness of land reform resulted in further concentration of control over agricultural lands? Initially, the green revolution (the breakthroughs in rice varietal technology in the late 1960s) increased labor use intensity in rice production (Otsuka et al., 1990). Pp. Porter, G. D., and D. Ganapin. In New Directions in Agroforestry: The Potential of Tropical Legume Trees, N. T. Vergara, ed. Systems for enhancing fallow fields with leguminous trees have been demonstrated. These may be fostered by an expansion in scope and the participation of the Upland Working Group of DENR (Gibbs et al., 1990). Reforestation rates would decline to 25,000 ha/year (Table 11). Ph.D. dissertation. Give Priority to People-Oriented Forestry Now that regulation of the forests by the national government has been acknowledged to be inadequate, forest protection through empowerment of people and their communities is officially accepted as the only workable model. Washington, D.C.: World Bank. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and targets are integrated and indivisible, global in nature and universally applicable, and take into account different national realities, capacities and levels of development and respecting national policies and priorities.

Quezon City: Population Institute, University of the Philippines. Manila, Philippines: Solidaridad. The permanently cultivated lands expand into the grasslands as shifting cultivation on the grassland margins intensifies, and the grasslands advance at the expense of the forested lands as settlement and the relentless use of fire open and transform the forests. Our sustainability practices have then transformed from primarily addressing risks and efficiency issues to tackling areas that provide more value and opportunities to the business, the society, and the environment. Unpublished document. Paper presented at the 8th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Federation of Crop Science Societies of the Philippines, Zamboanga City, Philippines, May 24–28, 1992. The deforestation process in the Philippines since World War II can be characterized by two major activities: the conversion of primary to secondary forests by logging activities and the removal of secondary forest cover by the expansion of agriculture. Returning the Forests to the People: Addressing Operational and Policy Constraints in Community-Based Forest Management.

The major challenge is to evolve new institutional arrangements that direct research toward the upland ecosystem as a totality. agricultural technologies. Manila, Philippines: Bureau of Forestry and Fishery. The estimated increase in total protection and production forests would be from 6.693 million ha in 1990 to 8.422 million ha in 2015. Import smuggling in the Philippines: An economic analysis. Deforestation in the Philippines has not occurred only in the twentieth century. This section evaluates current and potential directions for formulating concrete solutions to deforestation and sustainable land use.

They facilitate the spread of agriculture by opening up new areas; this occurred in parts of Mindanao in the 1950s and early 1960s (Vandermeer and Agaloos, 1962; Wernstedt and Simkins, 1965). and Masefield stated that the Philippines had a low population density and “no real pressure of population on resources” (p. 417). See our sustainability reports and discover our sustainability, impact to economy, society and environment. Nevertheless, there remains concern that such efforts may address only components of the upland ecosystem, whereas the key to eventual success lies in coping with the interrelatedness of. It is widely believed that the sustainability of food crop production could be enhanced by improved retention of crop residues and by the adoption of more diverse crop rotations that include nitrogen-fixing legumes (Mclntosh et al., 1981). Quezon City, Philippines: Department of Agriculture. Johnson, N., and J. Alcorn. Philippine economic performance in regional perspective. To overcome the destructive short-term perspective, longer lease periods will be necessary. Paper presented at the 5th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Federation of Crop Science Societies of the Philippines, Iloilo City, Philippines, April, 26–28, 1989. This share is equivalent to the amount of money needed to reforest 1 ha of denuded area when 1 ha of 3- to 4-year-old trees is cut. Phosphorus and other mineral elements are often more limiting than nitrogen in these soils. Gwyer, G. 1978. The high level of exchangeable aluminum in the subsoil inhibits the. TABLE 2 Land Use in the Philippines (in Thousands of Hectares). The major structural problem in the Philippines has been the inequality of income and wealth. Develop a Research Methodology It is at the interface between forestry and farming that the major future research and development challenges will be encountered ( Figure 6). Fujisaka, S. 1986.

A reasonable estimate is that deforestation, TABLE 6 Forest Cover in the Philippines, 1950–1987. In most ongoing reforestation contracts, fast-growing and leguminous hardwoods are planted as nurse trees to form a protective canopy, with a few premium species planted as the climax crop. Communities that have been displaced from their traditional lands: These communities, such as the T'boli, have been forcibly dispossessed and inhabit new locations where they do not have a basis for traditional land claims.
