Background

In November 1991, the mainstream non-government
organizations (NGOs) and people’s organization (POs) in
Palawan formed the Palawan NGO Network, Inc. The
motivation was to present a broader NGO consensus that
would carry more weight in the policy making process in
various local government units in the province.

With its creation, NGOs hope to maximize the impact of
their respective programs by being able to consult and
coordinate with one another. PNNI believes that by uniting
the NGOs and POs towards a common pursuit, it can
strongly influence the direction of development for Palawan.

Since then, PNNI has actively involved itself in numerous
provincial concerns.
Access to Palawan’s natural resources will be democratized in favor of the marginalized sectors of Palawan’s society (small scale fisherfolks, indigenous peoples, small farmers, urban poor and women).

PNNI will work for the empowerment (political, economic and technical) towards effective and genuine participation of the local communities in the development process.

Institutional Vision

A dynamic NGO and PO network with an effective program on sustainable development.

Societal Vision

A self reliant society that upholds social justice, genuine
citizens' participation, effective resource management and a
better quality of life for all.

Societal Mission

To enable poor and marginalized sectors to sustainably
manage the natural resources of Palawan, while actively
participating in local governance.

Development Agenda

PNNI will work towards the sustainable development (balancing of the use and preservation/protection of Palawan’s natural resources) and recognize that local communities play a major role in the management of resources. Any development measure that will not promote sustainable development will not be tolerated.
