Our Projects

To Plant o Not To Plant (TPNTP)

To Plant or Not to Plant (TPNTP) is a mangrove restoration project that advocates for the science-based Ecological Mangrove Restoration (EMR) and Associated Mangrove Aquaculture (AMA). Through the TPNTP, Wetlands International Philippines promotes good practices and advances national policies that support mangrove restoration in the country.

The implementation of the TPNTP is currently focused in Macajalar Bay, Mindanao and in the north coast of Manila Bay, Luzon.

The national policies and bills that we support are the national roadmap for mangrove restoration, integrated coastal zone management and greenbelt action planning, blue carbon, blue economy, and nature-based solutions.   

Ridge to Coast, Rain to Tap (R2C-R2T)

The Ridge to Coast, Rain to Tap Project: Sustainable Water Supply Project was developed in response to the impacts of Typhoon Sendong in 2011 in Cagayan de Oro City and its residents.

The project aims to repair and improve the facilities and delivery services of the water provider and to reduce the risk of flooding through the implementation of the integrated river basin management (IRBM) in the Cagayan de Oro River Basin. We are currently implementing the rainforestation approach, payment for ecosystem services model, and a decision support tool, based on hydrological modeling, to guide landscape-wide rehabilitation.

Wetlands International works with the Cagayan de Oro River Basin Management Council and Hineleban Foundation Inc. (of the fruit plantation company).
