ABOUT US

The Palawan NGO Network Inc. (PNNI) was organized in November 1991 by mainstream Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) and People's Organization (POs) in Palawan with the motivation of presenting a broader NGO consensus that would carry more weight in the policy making process in various local government units in the province.

 

With its creation, NGOs hope to maximize the impact of their respective programs through consultation and coordination with one another. PNNI believes that by uniting the NGOs and POs towards a common pursuit, it can strongly influence the direction of development for Palawan. Since then, PNNI has actively involved itself in numerous provincial concerns.

VISION

PNNI is a proactive and credible organization with an effective and long-term program that addresses the welfare of the environment and the people of Palawan.

DEVELOPMENT AGENDA

PNNI will work towards the sustainable development (balancing of the use and preservation/protection of Palawan's natural resources) and recognize that local communities play a major role in the management of resources. Any development measure that will not promote sustainable development will not be tolerated.

 

Access to Palawan's natural resources will be democratized in favor of the marginalized sectors of Palawan's society (small scale fisherfolks, indigenous peoples, small farmers, urban poor and women).

Currently, PNNI is composed of 39 Palawan NGOs/POs. The General Assembly, its highest policy-making body, meets every year to map out the network's thrust for the year. Its officers are elected on 2-year terms from among the member organizations.
