Mga kapuso, mga kapamilya, mga kapatid, maraming-maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat.
Thank you for inviting, thank you especially for giving me a reason to get out of Manila. Also thank you for asking me to come to Palawan. I always feel better and more relaxed when I come to your province, not the least because it is less earthquake prone than nearly anywhere else in the country.
This day marks your transition from the world of potential into reality. School days are done which means examinations are over, projects are accomplished, these and feasibility studies are defended. You went through both good and bad days in school and it taught you how to patiently struggle and endure. There are some of you who have graciously deprived yourselves from the temptation of a socializing life. Reverently, you have fulfilled your parents’ dreams for you. And this moment is what you have envisioned ever since you entered the portals of the Palawan State University.
Understanding socioeconomic factors and the communities’ relationship to coastal and marine resources is crucial for the success of marine conservation. Integration of socioeconomic monitoring at conservation sites can serve to involve local communities in resource management, provide adaptive management strategies to reflect the local needs, and facilitate understanding of the importance of marine and coastal resources. Socioeconomic Monitoring (SocMon) is a tool developed to facilitate coastal planning and management.
