Financial Priority: National Integrated Coastal Management Program
Under the Coral Triangle Initiative (CTI) Philippine National Plan of Action, ICM serves as an overall
framework in pursuing the five goals of the CTI,where a bottom-up approach was utilized in coming up
with the final list of action and targets, most of which are cross-cutting and are representative of lessons learned in the course of implementing coastal resources management. Since CTI is anchored in ICM as the overall framework for guiding the actions and targets, both projects can benefit from collaborative planning and implementation under the NICMP, particularly those related to marine biodiversity conservation and fisheries management.
