Convergence-Building towards Sustainable Management of Watersheds:
A Case Study of Panigan-Tamugan and Talomo-Lipadas Watersheds in Davao City

Excerpts from the case study
May 2013

In the watersheds of Davao City in Mindanao, the Interface Development Interventions (IDIS) has been mobilizing local communities to protect the city’s watersheds against forest conversion for mono-culture plantation expansion as well as chemical aerial spraying. The USAID-FPE project propelled IDIS to expand the scope of its convergence-building efforts. Existing partnerships with the communities have improved and new partnerships with the LGU, CSOs, and even the business sector have been established. This case study documents the organization’s journey from being an advocacy-focused organization, passionate in protecting Davao City’s watersheds, to becoming a more proactive and direct player in forest restoration efforts for the conservation of Talomo-Lipadas ang Panigan-Tamugan watersheds.
