ECO-BIO-SOCIAL FACTORS OF VECTOR DENSITY IN DEVELOPING AN EFFECTIVE APPROACH TO DENGUE CONTROL IN THE PHILIPPINES (Phase 2)
Project Director:          Jesusa M. Marco
Funding Agency:        World Health Organization/TDR

The second phase of the study seeks to determine process, progress and outcome indicators of community-based ecosystem management strategies at the household, cluster, barangay and city levels; and to determine and evaluate the differences in the processes of setting up the community-based strategies at the household and cluster levels of four selected clusters. The project resumed towards the latter part of May 2009 with a series of meetings with the community stakeholders. Since Phase 1 of the project ended around the 3rd quarter of 2008, the aforementioned meetings consisted of project updates and a presentation of Phase 2 plans and activities with members of the City Health Office, Health Center staff of the selected barangays (Brgy. Putatan, Alabang, and Cupang), as well as representatives from the City Mayor’s office and City departments. In the succeeding meetings, an orientation and planning workshop was conducted. In these workshops, specific instructions were given as to the implementation of the intervention in the four cluster sites, namely Manggahan, Mutual Homes, San Jose and Intercity with the former being a high-density cluster, and the latter three, low-density clusters. Before the implementation, the Project Team (referring to the staff from DLSU and RITM) together with the Health Center physician, sanitary inspectors, and barangay health workers, oriented the 100 households from each of the cluster sites as to the vector, disease, and the intervention package, which differed for each cluster.

Key words: community-based ecosystem management strategies, community stakeholders, intervention packages

 

WOMEN AND SUSTAINABLE TECHNOLOGY: SCALING UP VERMICOMPOSTING AMONG THE TALAANDIGS
Project Director:         Ma. Elena Chiong-Javier
Funding Agency:       Canada Fund for Local Initiative

The project aims to increase the Talaandig women’s awareness of vermicomposting, as a sustainable upland farming technology; to promote adoption of vermicomposting as a cost-saving and environment-friendly strategy; to encourage women to actively engage in vermicomposting; and to scale up the adoption of vermicomposting in the community. The increased adoption of the technology would lead to savings in farm inputs and an increase in environmental consciousness. The benefits of the technology and the increased involvement of women are expected to guarantee the sustainability of vermicomposting in the community. The project site is Bol-ogan, a predominantly Talaandig community in the barangay of Songco with a population of about 72 households. Songco is one of the villages in Lantapan, a 3rd class municipality found within the Kitanglad Mountain Range in Bukidnon Province of northern Mindanao. Lantapan is known as the “vegetable basket” in the island, with farming as the main occupation of residents. The Talaandigs of Bol-ogan are among the poorest residents of Songco.

Key words: vermicomposting, sustainable upland farming technology, environment-friendly strategies

 

PILOTING A PARTICIPATORY PROCESS AND TOOL TO ESTABLISH IP HOUSEHOLD DATABASE FOR ANCESTRAL DOMAIN CLAIM
Project Director:                      Ma. Elena Chiong-Javier
Funding Agency:                    Philippine Business for Social Progress and Upland NGO Assistance Committee

This study piloted a participatory research process for developing a culturally sensitive household census tool/questionnaire and the necessary training manuals for data gathering through interviewing and for coding the data obtained. It was undertaken in the upland barangays of San Fabian and Acacia in Kapaya Municipality of Nueva Vizcaya Province. To make the research and its results broadly relevant and utilizable, all stakeholders of the pilot study particularly the concerned indigenous communities were engaged in every possible extent from the beginning to the end of the research process. The main stakeholders are composed of the following institutions: local government units of the concerned barangays and municipality, the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP), Katutubong Samahan ng Pilipinas, Inc. (KASAPI), Philippine Association for Intercultural Development (PAFID), Kalahan Educational Foundation (KEF), the Upland NGO Assistance Committee (UNAC), and SDRC. 

Key words: ancestral domain claim, indigenous communities, culturally sensitive tool/questionnaire, participatory research processes
