The team identified the areas of responsibilities and collaboration in a meeting last March 31, 2022 at the Sangguniang Office in Pasacao.

The role of CBSUA in the project is to conduct research and information literacy campaign on the mangroves and the environment through its coordinator, Ms. Sheryl N.
