Abstract
  • The paper examines fisheries co-management arrangements in enhancing organizational resilience and social equity at the municipal and city level in Western Visayas, Philippines in the 1992-1998 and the post-1998 periods. Field visits and interviews, conducted intermittently from April 2001 to March 2002, reveal that a perceived deterioration and degradation of coastal and fisheries resources among policymakers, as well as small-scale and commercial fishers, gave rise to assertive local policy networks to promote resilient and equitable co-management regimes in the late 1990s. On the other hand, statistical analysis (using t-test and one-way ANOVA) of the perceptions of sampled households reveal that a general improvement in co-management indicators of organizational resilience and the promotion of social equity in the post-1998 period had been achieved. The paper notes that since 1992, centralized fisheries-related policy making was replaced by policy networks and alliances lead by local government executives and lawmakers of Sagay City and Concepcion. In general, the institutionalization of co-management efforts in Western Visayas, Philippines has provided a discursive arena for various actors and stakeholders, at the national and local level, to adapt to the complex interaction of socio-political, economic and ecological systems.
