Greening the Tourism Value Chain in Bohol

Cooperation. Policy papers have mushroomed, highlighting the importance of tackling the challenges of climate change. Concepts on how to put these policies into practice, however, are rare. Against this background the Sector Project in cooperation with the Private Sector Promotion Program in the Philippines (PSP) commissioned in 2010 a study on integrating green growth strategies into the MSME Development Plan 2011 – 2016 of the Department of Trade and Industry in the Philippines. A further output of this policy and strategy advice mission was a concept note on how to anchor green growth strategies into the economic development approach of the German Technical Assistance (TA). While both papers helped to develop a comprehensive overall green growth approach, work now needs to be intensified on how to break this down to the level of implementation in different intervention areas of PSD.
