A study by the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) by senior research fellow Adoracion Navarro sheds light on the need for a trans-disciplinary approach and updated data to bolster the case for the enactment of the National Land Use Act (NaLUA) after nearly three decades of failure. The Philippines faces a critical challenge in managing its land resources due to the absence of a national level legislation on land use planning and governance. This lack of a unified framework leads to conflicting land uses, environmental degradation and inefficient resource allocation. NaLUA emerges as a crucial solution to these issues, promising sustainable development and harmonious land management.
