MetadataShow full item record
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is working with the Department of Tourism (DoT) in preparing a tourism development project that will ensure a sustainable environment for El Nido and Coron in Palawan. “Palawan is known as the country’s ‘last ecological frontier’ and we want to ensure its rich marine ecosystem, particularly in El Nido and Coron, will be protected amid the rapid growth in tourist demand,” Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said. ADB will also help build the capacity of local stakeholders to protect and conserve healthy oceans and rehabilitate key biodiversity-based tourism sites.
