March 3, 2015

More than 90 experts from the ASEAN region and the United States gathered in Pasay City to support increased financing to protect the region’s rich biodiversity.

The two-day, ‘International Conference on Conservation Finance’ was organized by the U.S. Embassy Manila’s United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), the Economy and Environment Program for Southeast Asia, and the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity. Delegates from Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia, Burma, Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Philippines came together to discuss effective approaches to fund and sustain ecosystems.

USAID's Office of Environment, Energy and Climate Change Director Jeremy Gustafson said: “The U.S. government supports developing conservation financing programs to sustainably manage Southeast Asia’s protected areas. In the Philippines, this aligns with our long-term commitment to boost environmental resiliency and help the country become more stable and prosperous.”

In my years as Mission Director of USAID in the Philippines, I have been a frequent visitor of Bohol, in work-related and personal capacities. I thoroughly enjoyed all those visits, not only because of Bohol’s unique attractions, but more importantly, the friendship and warm hospitality that the Boholanos offer. I’m sure I am not alone in feeling this way. I look forward to exploring your exhibit as I will surely discover new places that will persuade me to come back again. I may take advantage of the travel discounts myself.
