state holders and end-users.
General Objective:
To gather relevant local research
literature/technologies on soil and
water conservation and
in Northern Philippines.
Specific Objectives:
To gather local research technologies
generated/developed in Northern Philippines
concerned with soil and water conservation
management and activities; concern on
socio-economic well-being;
To classify the local commodities into:
forestry, agroforestry and agriculture; and
To develop a bibliographical database on
local research strategies/technologies on soil
and water conservation and management
using ACCESS Program.
A review of local literature, grey literature and
technologies generated in Northern Philippines
concerning soil and water conservation and
management in forestry, agroforestry and
agriculture inorder to produce a bibliographical
database of watershed technologies/strategies has
been conducted by one technical researcher for a
period of 12 months specifically from June to 2003
to June 2004.
Documents evaluated include
commodity in forestry, agroforestry and agriculture.
This involve the undergraduate, graduate level,
research institute and acadamme.
