SustainabilityGlobe Supports Local Forest Patrollers under USAID Safe Water Project
Mar 22, 2023 | 01:50 PM
Globe , in partnership with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through its Safe Water Project, has donated mobile phones to forest patrollers in Palawan, Negros Occidental, and Sarangani to help address issues of water security, deforestation, and biodiversity. The mobile phones will be used to collect location-based data, including photos and sound recordings, of forest conditions, wildlife, and threats in their respective conservation areas. The move is part of Globe's climate action strategy and commitment to implementing nature-based solutions, as it supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly UN SDG No. 13, which underscores the importance of climate action to save lives and livelihoods to address climate emergencies. Globe also undertakes initiatives in support of UN SDG No. 15 , which promotes the sustainable use and conservation of terrestrial ecosystems, including forests and their biodiversity, and UN SDG No. 17, which espouses stronger partnerships for sustainable development. Globe is committed to upholding the UN Global Compact principles and contributing to 10 UN SDGs. The USAID Safe Water Project is working with local government units (LGUs) to form patrol groups and adopt the Lawin System. Launched in 2016 by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Lawin utilizes technology for conservation area planning, patrolling, data management, and responding to observed threats. Mobile phones are used to conduct patrols at the project sites.
