This publication identifies existing policy instruments and financial mechanisms available in the Philippines for mobilizing financial resources for infrastructure projects which impact marine pollution programs. Policy gaps and conflicts are further reviewed, particularly those that inhibit investments in infrastructure that affect marine pollution prevention and management. Perspectives of the sectors, i.e. government, NGOs, LGUs, and the private sector, are likewise discussed. Finally, case studies on government programs and environmental investments by private sectors, particularly those that involve partnerships among the sectors and those that use economic instruments, are enumerated in the last part of the paper.
