dc.description.abstractThis paper evaluates the sufficiency and local implementation of river management laws in the Philippines. The assessment is that although there are enough policies and regulations, they are not adequately implemented at the local level because the LGUs do not have the necessary ordinances to implement national policies effectively. The authors suggest how market-based instruments to can be developed and implemented to improve river management, using a river in Lantapan, Bukidnon as a case study.
