The legitimization of Republic Act 7611 or the Strategic Environmental Plan for Palawan Act launched not only a distinct and proactive law but also introduced a unique body that carries powerful responsibility and locally working only in one province like Palawan. While SEP is a national law, its effectivity covers only Palawan. This body is called the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development (PCSD).
The PCSD is a multi-sectoral and inter-disciplinary body, which under the law is charged with the governance, implementation and policy direction of the SEP.
To date the Council is composed of the following:
President League of Municipalities
Mayor City of Puerto Princesa
Department of Agriculture
President, Liga ng mga Barangay
