Upland Development Program



OBJECTIVES

   To create immediate additional incomes for upland households in support of the hunger mitigation program, and supporting the development of sustainable livelihood.


 

       The resources of the DENR for CY 2009 in forest development and management have been substantially reconfigured in order to accelerate the restoration of the environmental service functions of vital watersheds and protected areas. This, in addition to simultaneously catalyzing the improvement of productivity of the uplands, creating incomes of upland poor, mitigating hunger among highly vulnerable populations, engaging organized upland communities, and providing the climate for gainful economic production for poor upland dwellers.
