About

Green Power Palawan Agriculture Corporation is a Philippines company that has partnered with several barangays in Southern Palawan to assist them to develop their ancestral lands.

Long term agreements have been entered into enabling GPPAC to negotiate partnerships with joint venture groups with expertise in sustainable eco-friendly agriculture.

Palawan island is a long, resource-rich island with a strong eco-friendly culture.

Southern Palawan is home to large tracts of land suitable for agriculture and cropping. The land, soils and climate will sustain agricultural enterprises involving a diverse range of tropical products, including coconuts, rubber, sugar, bananas, cacao, tropical fruits. The lands are also ideal for cattle ranching, dairy and other livestock husbandry.

The island enjoys ample rainfall, spread consistently and evenly over the year.

Southern Palawan is also particularly well placed geographically, as it lies south of the typhoon belt that is active in higher latitudes of the Philippines archipeligo. This means that historically it has remained out of the way of the many typhoons and their destructive power.

Politically Palawan also enjoys stability, harmony and a climate suitable for the development of agriculture.

Despite having a multitude of factors that make it highly suitable for agriculture Palawan is a net importer of most foodstuffs including tropical fruits, meat, eggs, and vegetables! While many tribal groups have a lot of land, its development has been hampered by lack of capital, technical expertise and inaccessibility to markets.

A major goal of GPPAC is to work with its partner barangays to build long term sustainable agricultural projects that benefit their people, and help lift them from the extensive poverty in the region. GPPAC is committed to partnering with groups that will develop the ancestral lands to the mutual benefit of all parties, with a heavy social commitment.

The Philippines government returned ancestral lands to the many tribes that have lived on them for generations. This was done in an effort to alleviate poverty and improve the quality of life of the indigenous owners of the tribal lands.

With the use of its share of the Malampaya gas project income, the Palawan Provincial Government plans to construct a cemented circumferential road on the West Coast to connect with the existing cemented road along the East Coast; and to connect all municipal roads to each other by the middle of 2016. Road construction is now on-going, and significant progress has been made in increasing the mileage of sealed roads over the last few years.

A commercial port and a RoRo passenger boat for Kudat, Malaysia has just started operating in Rizal town. Puerto Princesa, the capital of Palawan, now has 20 flights per day. Five years ago it had 3 flights a day, and tourists are pouring in.
