The transfer of management and responsibility to partner POs of NRM Subprojects aims to ensure the continuity of protection, sustainability, income generation and accountability over the completed NRM areas. It will also provide guidance on the procedure and arrangements pertaining to the management of completed NRM subprojects. #TayoAngKalikasan RSCIG No. 03-064-2022
