P-P partnership in advocating biodiversity

By Mai Gevera

Davao City (12 November) -- As popularized by President Benigno Aquino III, another model of public-private partnership or PPP is being pushed in the city to promote biodiversity.

Environment and Natural Resources XI regional technical director Manny Isip showed how both public and private sectors in the community become one in for Davao's biodiversity.

Both groups organized the Fun Run for Biodiversity as its way of conveying the message to the people on the need for environmental awareness.

This is also believed to be a timely activity to encourage more people to join the cause. Set on November 21 at 5:30 am, the Fun Run for Biodiversity will start at the Camella North Point, Bajada going to Agdao and Buhangin. Registration fees are at P200 (with singlet), P100 (without singlet, and P50 (special rate for students and senior citizens).

The fun run is the activity organized by the government sector, some private groups like the Davao Region Tourism Council, Davao Medical Society and the Federation of Davao Region Chambers of Commerce in announcing their partnership for the conservation of Davao's biodiversity.

"It is not possible to increase our tourists if the government and private entities will not work together to ensure a healthy environment and booming economy, as well," he said.

The group is also holding the 1st Davao Biodiversity Summit on November 25 to formulate a tripartite action plan, with monitoring and evaluation mechanism.

The plan will help advance efforts, initiatives, and projects that intend to reduce threats to biodiversity conservation. (PIA XI) [top]
