Sector Experience

Foremost among PRIMEX's NRM projects is the US$10.5-million Regional Technical Assistance for Strengthening Coastal and Marine Resource Management in the Coral Triangle – Southeast Asia, covering Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines, which started in August 2012 and was completed in December 2017. Conservation-based livelihood development and capacity building of coastal and upland communities in biodiversity conservation have been important  components of most of the natural resource management projects designed and implemented by PRIMEX in the last two decades.

PRIMEX has also worked with various government agencies in the conduct of participatory climate change vulnerability assessment and the planning and implementation of community-based climate change adaptation interventions such as mangrove reforestation in coastal areas.
