Abstract or Summary
  • This paper explains and analyzes the forces that sustain and inhibit a community-based coastal resource management (CBCRM) system in Nasidman Island, Iloilo Province, Philippines. Field work for this study was conducted periodically from 2000 to 2002 using qualitative research techniques. The paper reveals that wider international and national socio-political, economic and environmental processes have helped shape local decision making in Nasidman Island, particularly in the adoption and sustainability of a CBCRM program. The case study provides evidence that local coastal communities are not hapless "victims" that can be engulfed by external socio-political and economic processes. The fishing community in Nasidman Island conducted networking activities and devised practices to utilize and neutralize forces and actors that were not supportive of their CBCRM initiatives. Notwithstanding the destabilizing effects of global and national integration to small ecoregions, the CBCRM dynamics in Nasidman Island have resulted in the general increase in fish stocks, improved household livelihood and the enhanced capacity of fishers to influence coastal resource management plans and programs.
