Policy Advocacy and Lobbying
The Palawan Council for Sustainable Development (PCSD) is the main implementing arm and primary policy-making body of the Republic Act (R.A.) 7611, also known as the Strategic Environmental Plan (SEP) for Palawan Act. The SEP provides the over-all development policy framework for Palawan, one that is anchored in the protection and conservation of its natural resources.
With key political leaders and heads of several national government agencies as mandated members, the PCSD deliberates and approves all development projects in Palawan that impact on the environment. PNNI actively engages itself into the arena of developmental debate and sees its role in the PCSD as an advocate of policies that directly benefit the communities and those that protect the environment.
Currently, PNNI has acquired one (1) seat for its NGO Representative to the PCSD.
