This report is a supplement to the Policy and Institutional Review (PIR) Final Report (November 2014) of the Biodiversity Finance Initiative (BIOFIN) – Philippines.
In general, the BIOFIN aims to implement comprehensive national resource mobilization strategies at national level by supporting governments in reviewing policies and institutions relevant for biodiversity finance, determining baseline investment and assessing the costs of implementing the National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans and quantifying the biodiversity finance gap.1
The PIR component of the BIOFIN methodology concluded last year, serves to provide the review of context by identifying the biodiversity-related policies and institutions. The key results of the PIR are:
(1) Policies that should be enhanced, improved, amended or modified to achieve positive and prevent negative biodiversity and ecosystem status and trends,
(2) Policies/Recommendations for Resource Mobilisation.
