Driven by its passion to create Sustainable Coasts and Involved Communities, CCEF continues to develop and disseminate tools, techniques and research for better marine management. It also promotes integrated coastal management approach that includes marine protected areas (MPAs) localized law enforcement and other participatory best practices.
is to improve the quality of life of coastal communities has also led to providing social services above the shoreline, including:
Environment friendly enterprises such as marine ecotourism, seaweed farming, locally-based service businesses and organizing drinking water supply systems
Education Management related to environmental, energy efficiency, governance and financial
Information systems and geographical information systems
The management and sustainable use of Philippine coastal resources through active leadership and participation of coastal communities and stakeholders.
Conservation, Protection &
of the Coastal and Marine Environment
for improved coastal resource management through education, information and learning.
There is a need to chart a course leading to effective local marine management. CCEF believes that such can be achieved with inter-LGU collaboration.
“…CCEF has learned from over 10 years of facilitating CRM in the southern Philippines that harnessing local knowledge and engagement together with shared resources will produce the most effective and coordinated site-specific projects. Such efforts lead to strengthened institutional capacity and uniformly enforced environmental laws and fishery harvest practices over time.”
