3 Introduction Global recognition of IP role in NRM (CBD 1992, UNDRIP 2007) RA No Philippine Indigenous Peoples Rights Act (IPRA) recognizes ownership of ancestral domains Traditional owners must make an Ancestral Domain Sustainable Development and Protection Plan (ADSDPP) to: Maintain ecological balance Restore denuded areas Platform to exercise bundle of rights (IRR, IPRA. Article 4, Sections 1-3)

4 ADSDPP By 2011, 156 Certificate of Ancestral Domain Titles awarded 95 ADSDPPs completed Criticisms: ADSDPP process is defective…[and] is being implemented for compliance sake, instead of coming up with meaningful plans that are identified by Indigenous peoples themselves… (IP resolution 2010) a heavy emphasis on investment generation at the expense of the protection of Indigenous peoples rights and culturally appropriate processes (IWGIA 2012, pg. 275)

5 Broad aim: Contribute to a more meaningful Indigenous planning policy and practice Specific objectives: Identify desired qualities of an Indigenous planning system Derive and field-test an Indigenous planning process framework Compare the proposed framework with the government planning framework Research Goals

8 Theoretical guides and methods Constructivist theoretical perspective Critical Social Theory Mixed Methods Approach

9 Review to identify desirable qualities of an Indigenous planning system process resources plan content SLF capitals (human, social, natural, cultural, financial or physical) Literature review Focus groups to know desired attributes of an Indigenous planning system: process resources plan content Focus groups Ranking of literature criteria by Focus Group participants & then scoring ranks Ranking & scoring of criteria

10 Deriving the Indigenous planning framework Ranking literature criteria Review of planning literature Focus groups with 10 tribes

11 Community planning: 3 villages Consents, protocols, co-researcher training, village chief exposure trips Facilitators: primary researcher, Indigenous co-researchers, 2-3 NGO staff, IPO officers Framework assessment: survey questionnaire & interviews How well framework met 13 process and 10 outcomes criteria using Likert-scale Open-ended questions Co-researcher Dante Tumanding facilitating a community time- line workshop
