Frequently Asked Questions

What is 10M in 10?

10 Million Trees in 10 Years for a Greener Negros Movement (10M in 10) is a private sector-led movement to UNITE, INSPIRE and ENCOURAGE people to MOVE and REGREEN NEGROS ISLAND.

 

10M in 10 was launched last October 10, 2015.

Why was 10M in 10 formed?

A study in 2010 identified the causes of deforestation in Negros Island:

  • Commercial logging
  • Land conversion (sugar cane plantations)
  • Kaingin (slash and burn)
  • Upland migration

(Source: Olabisi, 2010)


OUT OF 478,402 HECTARES OF FORESTLANDS IN NEGROS ISLAND, ONLY 16% or 74,958 HECTARES REMAINED COVERED WITH FORESTS. (Source: DENR-FMB, Forestry Statistics, 2010)

10M in 10’s envisions a Negros Island ecosystem that is:

  • Environmentally stable and productive and
  • Able to sustainably support:
    • Human development;
    • Agriculture; and 
    • Industry. 

 

10M in 10’s compelling and determined MISSION to inspire active and potential partners:
“PLANT, GROW AND PROTECT 10 million trees in 10 years.”

 

10M in 10 has set three goals to mark the achievement of the movement’s vision:

  • Goal 1: Protect and maintain stable and productive watersheds;
  • Goal 2: Help improve the unique biodiversity of the island; and
  • Goal 3: Build resilient communities that are able to adapt to the impacts of climate change.

Why Negros Island?

Negros is one of the Philippines’ home to many naturally-endangered species. The island is also experiencing rampant deforestation, from reefs to ridges.

Why 10 million trees in 10 years?

Because we need:

  • A clear measurement/ metric to guide us;
  • To provide a sense of urgency for people to move; and
  • 10 years is enough to see the start of a palpable environmental and social effect of impact.

 

How will we do it?

The mission to plant, grow and protect 10 million trees shall be achieved by combining the following three strategies:

  • Bayanihan Planting – 50%
  • Adopt-a-plantation – 30%
  • BINHI – 20%

Why do we encourage the planting of native, endemic, and indigenous species?

Because this will help achieve the movement’s main three goals:

  • Goal 1: Protect and maintain stable and productive watersheds;
  • Goal 2: Help improve the unique biodiversity of the island; and
  • Goal 3: Build resilient communities that are able to adapt to the impacts of climate change.

Who are our partners?

The Movement acknowledges that achieving our goals cannot be done by one entity working alone, but rather, by a group of entities from various sectors working with and through others to take action to achieve our common goal. Thus, the main strategy of the 10M in10 Movement is to unite the most number of agencies, organizations, and individuals to implement the biggest forest restoration movement in Negros Island.
