Lapantan, Philippines: RUPES Manupali Watershed Working Group

Abstract

Lantapan, in the Manupali watershed of the Philippines, exemplifies tension between rapid economic growth and environmental degradation. The diverse stakeholders, namely farmers, banana plantation companies, local government officials and politicians, national irrigation administrators, irrigators, and the national power corporation learn that with proper negotiation and incentives, hostile confrontation on the emerging water crisis can be avoided.
