This book summarizes the lessons learned from previous studies and project activities in the northern Sierra Madre Mountain Region in order to draw conclusions on various aspects of comanagement. One of the main challenges is how to arrive at, and maintain, a fruitful partnership between government institutions and individual, or collective, resource users sharing power, responsibilities, and benefits over natural resources. Changes in organizational culture and social norms may be essential to create long-term sustainability in natural resource management. Such transformations will not happen overnight for they demand social learning, deliberation, collective actions with sufficient scope for flexibility, and adaptation in an environment subject to social, political, and biophysical changes. Yet with the increasing recognition of the crucial role of local and indigenous communities – within the Philippines and the international community in general – the future perspective of comanagement remains promising. This is particularly true for areas serving multiple functions at local and supra-local levels.
