Province of Negros Occidental

The Province of Negros Occidental is a provincial government of The Philippines, located in the Western Visayas region. Known as the “Sugarbowl” of The Philippines, Negros Occidental produces more than half the nation’s sugar output. The province supports programmes, both of government and private sector partners, for the conservation, rehabilitation and protection of the environment, especially coastal areas, forest reserves, major rivers and water bodies. It supports private sector initiatives in environmental advocacy and networking to create environmental awareness and education on issues and concerns affecting the environment.

Negros Occidental is exemplary of sound environmental management with two protected forest areas (Mt. Kanlaon and Northern Negros Natural Park) and two marine reservations (Sagay Marine Reserve and Danjugan Island Marine Sanctuary) that are home to various species of flora, fauna and marine life.
