People, Place, & Technology: Inter-phasing Basic Technology, Resource Management and Community Mobilization

  1. 1. PEOPLE, PLACE, & TECHNOLOGY: INTER- PHASING BASIC TECHNOLOGY, RESOURCE MANAGEMENT AND COMMUNITY MOBILIZATION BY: HUBERTO ZANORIA
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION DEVELOPMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY 20XX Tourism continues to grow as a significant industry generating economic growth and development in the Philippines. Associated with its success is the participation of communities surrounding tourist destinations. As a result, CBT initiatives have emerged to account for the community's increasing participation in tourism development (E. Gutierrez 2019).
  3. 3. PROBLEM GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION The central Philippines is considered one of the top three areas attracting visitors with internationally renowned islands like Boracay, Palawan, Bohol, and Cebu located. ALOGUINSAN Aloguinsan a fifth-class municipality is situated in mid-southwest Cebu with stunning beach resorts and other tourist attractions. METRO CEBU the second biggest metro area of the country after Manila is also attracting rural migrants due to job opportunities and decreasing productivity of agricultural lands. 20X PITCH DECK 3
  4. 4. BOJO RIVER CRUISE & ECO-CULTURAL TOUR Bojo River Cruise & Eco-Cultural Tour is one of the most popular attractions in the Municipality of Aloguinsan in Cebu, the Philippines. This eco-cultural tour at Bojo River provides you not only a fun time and ride on an outrigger boat but also an environmentally enlightening experience. Along the river, you will see various species of mangroves, among other flora and fauna, being protected and propagated by local authorities and inhabitants. It is a great place for nature lovers and environment-minded people to enjoy a boat ride by the river that is linked to the open blue sea. 20XX PITCH DECK 4
  5. 5. CHALLENGES Mangroves after The devastation of Super Typhoon Odette The Organization was forced to let people fetch water for household use and wash their clothes in the river because there was no other source of water at that time. There is an issue of balancing the need of the project and the need of the community as well as the health of the nature was put at risk.
  6. 6. CHALLENGES AGRICULTURE Decreasing productivity of agricultural lands_ Limestone as its parent material and limited area for corn and other crops. MARKETING Poor posting on FB page. No linkage to tour operators GOVERNANCE No formal agreement to maintain the security of the CBT especially the preservation of the natural resources. WHO WILL CONTINUE? The organization was lacking younger staff to continue their passion. Their children are looking for greener pasture in the city.
  7. 7. HISTORY In 2009, LGU of Aloguinsan gathered local members to form an association for river and wildlife preservation as its purpose, another aim of the local government was to give the members an alternative source of income, then they formed this so-called BAETAS (Bojo Aloguinsan Ecotourism Association) most of the members are homemakers of fishermen and farmers. ECO-TOURISM SYSTEM The BAETAS were very trained, particularly on the essence of ecotourism operations, they have strict rules and regulations to guest to maintain the area as an eco-tourism site, because when conducting ecotourism services, it must be peaceful, clean, and limit the carrying capacity just to maintain the essence of ecotourism. PEOPLE ORGANIZATION BOJO ALOGUINSAN ECO- TOURISM ASSCIATION (BAETAS)
  8. 8. TOURISM VS COMMUNITY-BASED ECO-TOURISM 8 From the traditional packaged tours with guests from western countries and northern Asian countries of Japan and Korea. CBT is a departure from this model with emphasis on community participation, appreciating the locality’s resource endowments and socio-cultural practices. One of the main features is the involvement of community residents which is a total departure from the traditional tourism practices of treating the community as a mere recipient of guests.
  9. 9. TOURISM APPROACHES CBT looks towards local-level responsibilities and practices of tourism development and management. ( Dangi & Jamal, 2016 ). Sustainability and ‘community’ well-being are essential for CBT. The link between CBT and sustainability and the environment is documented as a way of preserving the biodiversity linked to livelihoods, poverty reduction and sustainability. - CBT is are characterized by high environmental attention, increased control and participation of the local residents, as well as significant benefits of the host community (employment, improvement of services and political participation). 9
  10. 10. GOVERNMENT’S ROLE Create supportive attitudes in government by the community communities develop Bojo over time Create opportunities, rather than plan community tourism for them Recognize that local people will have multiple livelihood objectives, not just maximizing cash income. Concerns about how land or natural resources are used, or access to training can be equally important to livelihoods.
  11. 11. ROLE OF THE WOMEN Traditional gender norms have limited women’s income earning opportunities and continue to restrict the way women engage in eco-tourism . Another aspect is the notable bias observed in some cases towards employment of males over females due to some of the physical demands of activities offered by the eco- tourism ventures, where such physically demanding activities are not seen as ‘lady’ like. WOMEN’S ACTIVITIES Food prep, local guide, presentation of cultural dances, handicrafts making * extending these gender roles can in fact cause greater burdens for women. * further differentiated along age differentials ( past child-bearing years- women are actively leading and networking major CBT activities. Not evident- educational attainment as a hindrance in assuming responsibilities in CBT- Bojo. 11
  12. 12. WOMEN EMPOWERMENT 12 Guideship is not limited to men, women also have the same task as them. Women take time to teach interested guests to weave the “puso” or hanging rice. Women usually held the orientation and awareness-raising programs in the organization.
  13. 13. REPRESENTATION AND ROLE DELINEATION Strengthen political advocacy at both barangay and municipal development councils with the assumption of power holders in the legislative bodies. These representation can also be an avenue to access health, social services and other assistance. Support a ‘more open’ delineation of responsibilities and reinforcing a more shared responsibility in - food preparation, tour guiding; flora fauna inventory and PRESENTATION of unique Cebuano songs and dances -Provide opportunities in mainstreaming involvement of groups like women, youth and persons with disability
  14. 14. USAGE OF TECHNOLOGY: DRONE, CELLPHONES, AND GPS Using gadgets and apps in site vulnerability assessment is now common in professions like environmental planners, engineers, and even commoners who have an interest in this field. Using Facebook as their marketing strategy to attract more guests and tourist
  15. 15. These are the different species of mangroves found With the use of GPS, GIS, and Manifold (app) we were able to plot the exact location of the species of mangroves.
