Training Event 3:

R2R 101: Ridge-to-Reef/Watershed Ecosystem Management (R2R/WEM) Approach to Land Use Planning

Date: October 05, 2023
Time: 01:00 pm – 04:00 pm
Meeting Room: 8

Training Provider:

Watershed Integrated Area Land Use Planning (WILUP) Project

Description of the training:

This training focuses primarily on the Ridge-to-Reef/Watershed Ecosystem Management (R2R/WEM) Approach and delves on its application to the land use and development planning of local government units. The R2R/WEM approach is a holistic watershed ecosystem approach to the management and development of land, water, biodiversity, and other natural resources sustainably. In this training, participants will be given an overview of the R2R/WEM Approach which will entail a discussion on what are watersheds, how are they important, how do we use the context of a watershed in land use and development planning, and what is the importance of using R2R/WEM Approach to Comprehensive Land Use Planning. The participants will also be apprised on the key processes and resources in R2R/WEM Land Use Planning. The training includes an illustration or demonstration in the trade-offs in relation to changes in land use inside a watershed including the beneficial and adverse impacts of alternative uses of land is primarily the sustainability of watershed and ecosystem services.

Objectives

The activity aims to:
  1. To promote a more robust application of the R2R/WEM approach to i land use planning

  2. To improve understanding and appreciation on the fundamental concepts, principles, practices and application of the R2R/WEM concept to local land use and development planning, and other key stakeholders (LGUs, local/provincial planners, concerned national government agencies, academe, researchers, etc.)

Expected Outcomes/Outputs

Participants are expected to gain increased understanding and appreciation on the R2R/WEM approach to the preparation of land use and development plans that will serve as the integrating framework for the integration and coordination of development plans amongst cities and municipalities within the same province and the integration of development programs of LGUs and NGAs
