MetadataShow full item record
The government’s rehabilitation of Boracay Island is being eyed as one of the cases to be presented in the planned Asean meeting on mainstreaming biodiversity in the tourism sector. The presentation will help Asean member-nations learn how the Philippines carried out Boracay’s rehabilitation to prevent further environmental degradation of the world-famous resort island, Dr. Theresa Mundita Lim, executive director of Asean Centre for Biodiversity, said. “From that presentation, Asean member-nations may be able to identify and even replicate best practices applicable to respective tourist areas,” she said on Wednesday (Sept. 5) at the sidelines of the ASEAN Biodiversity Heroes Regional Forum’s second leg in Metro Manila.
