PN 2016-13National Greening Program: Lessons from Institutional Analysis
Luna, Maria Paz G.

This Policy Note is the result of an institutional analysis and process evaluation of the National Greening Program (NGP), which was established to address deforestation and denudation of public lands. The program, which targeted the planting of 1.5 billion trees in 1.5 million hectares, reached a survival rate above its targeted 85-percent rate. The policy goal for the next stage is to create long-term sustainability of the program's successes. The Note proposes some elements of a subsequent program, if needed after the NGP. They include setting up a system of incentives and disincentives for failure to reach targets, rationalizing the functions and reorganizing the Forestry Management Bureau and the Biodiversity Management Bureau, and placing the subsequent NGP under the Cabinet Cluster on Climate Change.
