Abstract:

 

An impact assessment of the SANREM-BIDANI Training Program on Participatory Landscape-Lifescape Appraisal (PLLA) was conducted to determine the effects and assess the impact of the PLLA among the trainees, and the relationships of training inputs and effects with perceived impacts of the PLLA. The PLLA was conducted as part of capability building in natural resource management. The study took samples from six barangays each from Lantapan and Valencia, Bukidnon. Results illustrated varied impacts such as improvement of farm practices, fund raising for economically viable and environmental technologies, and development of barangay integrated development plans. The trainees’ characteristics before and after the PLLA training indicated highly significant effects of the trainees’ level of awareness, knowledge gained, and acquired skills.
