PHIL-AM CONSULTANT FOR COMMUNITY BASED ALMACIGA RESIN PRODUCTION AND WOMEN-LED PLUSH TOYS

Terms of Reference
CONSULTANT FOR COMMUNITY BASED
ALMACIGA RESIN PRODUCTION AND WOMEN-LED PLUSH TOYS

 1. Purpose

The purpose of this Term of Reference is to outline the requirements and terms for consultancy services in the conduct of the feasibility study and the formulation of business plan for (i) Almaciga Resin Production and (ii) Women-Led Plush Toys in Davao City Cluster of the unprotected Mt. Apo KBA.

 2. Background

Key Biodiversity Areas are the few places on earth where diverse flora and fauna lives and supposed to thrive and continue their ecological role. The Mt. Apo KBA in Mindanao is protected and secured as the Natural park but it is only two thirds of total 99,000 ha. KBA. While, around 40,000 ha. of the KBA is not protected and unsecured.

The Phil. Eagle Foundation (PEF) in partnership with Phil-Am Fund wants to address the continuing direct and indirect threats to biodiversity in the unprotected KBA through a holistic scheme that benefits the communities, ecosystem and species. One of the objectives of this project is to explore alternative income sources and other incentives that alleviate poverty which also ensure sustainability through conservation financing and knowledge management. In order to have a biodiversity-friendly community livelihood enterprise, a feasibility study will be conducted and then two separate business plans will be formulated for the two community based enterprises. The Feasibility study is a measure whether the two community based enterprises are achievable and sustainable. If it is feasible, business plans will then be formulated to serve as guide for running and sustaining the community based enterprises.

In this manner, the presence of the community-based enterprise will provide livelihood to the community while at the same time, engaging themselves in the biodiversity conservation of the Mt. Apo KBA.

 

Almaciga Resin Production

The Almaciga tree is endemic that exists in high mountains throughout the Philippines. It is a very large tree that reaches 300 cm in diameter and 60 m in height (Goloubinoff, n.d.). There are two kinds of Almaciga resin and these are ground or fossil resin and the surface or tapped resin. The fossil resin is extracted through digging into the ground where the tree once grew while the surface resin, the easier and commonly used method, is extracted by tapping the tree (Ella, 2000). The Almaciga resin which is commercially known as Manila Copal is an export non-timber forest product. It is used as an ingredient in paints, varnishes, lacquer, soap, printing inks, shoe polish, floor wax and plastic waterproofing materials. It is also used for incense in religious ceremonies as fuel for torches and as a caulking substance in some communities (Abasolo, 2003).

In the high mountains of the unprotected KBA’s, there are Almaciga trees located that are potential for Almaciga resin production. The communities within the unprotected KBA’s will have livelihood obtained from tapping Almaciga trees without the need to cut them down. Aside from giving income to the community, the presence of this enterprise also promotes biodiversity conservation because the community will give more value to the forest where they source their income. Thus, this will stop the community in cutting down trees. The communities within the KBA are expected not to exploit the natural resources because same with the biodiversity, these people cannot live without the forest and believe that forest is life.

 

Women-Led Plush Toys

The Women-Led Plush Toys Enterprise is a community based enterprise that produce and sell eagle plush toys. In coordination with Conservation Sewmates, women in the community will be the one producing their personalized plush toys that are made of cloth and then it will be distributed through the Philippine Eagle Center (PEC) as the distributing channel to other outlets. The biodiversity plush toys (such as Philippine eagle, Philippine Deer, Rufous Hornbill, Waling-waling, Rafflesia and etc) will be marketed through social media-based marketing in social networking sites such as Facebook and on-line shops. The PEC gift shop will also serve as the distribution area for the locals and tourist in Davao City. Moreover, the biodiversity plush toys will also be displayed for wide scope of potential buyers during regular and big events in Davao City such as Kadayawan Festival, Araw ng Dabaw, Earth Day, Philippine Eagle Week and among others.

This activity for women called as conservation sew mates is an avenue for additional income of the households in the community within the unprotected areas in KBA.
