The National Integrated Protected Areas System (NIPAS), created in 1992, established protected areas that could have the twin goals of conservation and sustainable development. This chapter profiles one of the protected areas — Mount Kitanglad Natural Park — at the time considered a model conservation program and one which could use community-based resource management in order to conserve the mountain range's unusually rich biodiversity. This case study provides an example of the obstacles that conservation can face at the local level, and the need to develop sound livelihood programs with workable financial systems, which can broadly benefit the community.

Keywords:   NIPAS, protected areas, Mount Kitanglad, model conservation program, sustainable development, biodiversity, community-based resource management, livelihood programs
