BRIEFER: Integrating Ancestral Domain Sustainable Development and Protection Plan (ADSDPP) into Local Development Plans to Promote Environment Sustainability and Poverty Reduction

Description: 
The briefer lays down issues, gaps and challenges towards integrating Indigenous Peoples’ Ancestral Domain Sustainable Development and Protection Plan (ADSDPP) into the local development plans, programs and budget processes. The concerns raised in the briefer were validated during the National Roundtable Discussion to Harmonize Local Government Code of 1991 (LGC) and Indigenous Peoples Rights Act (IPRA) last 9-10 October 2013. This initiative aims to draft a Joint Memorandum Circular that will primarily harmonize the conflicting provisions of the IPRA and LGC, to integrate the mandate of the local governments and the protection of the rights of the indigenous peoples in the sustainable utilization of natural resources and environmental management.
