抄録: The nypa palm, like the coconut palm, is a tree all of whose parts have uses including everything from the leaves down to the roots. Its uses range from food, medicine and as a material for construction and industry, not to mention its environmental, ecological and socio-cultural uses. In many areas in Southeast Asia before World War Two, its products were highly traded commodities. At present, nypa palm/mangrove is still one of the major sources of livelihood in many coastal towns in the Philippines and also plays a major role in the socio-cultural practices at the study area of the barangays (villages) Tabba and Cabaggan in Pamplona, Cagayan. These barangays are found along the tip of the Province of Cagayan and are influenced by the Kuroshio Current. However, this resource is now threatened due to over-utilization and conversion of its growth area into fishponds. Improved management of the nypa resource will increase its value to the community and will compel the population to protect it from over-utilization and prevent the imminent conversion of its habitat to other uses. Possible measures to increase the value of the resource to the community are an improvement in its utilization and advocacy to increase the community recognition and appreciation for its environmental and ecological roles. These measures can possibly be implemented through a participatory strategy. Such a strategy was therefore assessed as to its applicability in the area which also took into consideration the preparedness of the community for participatory undertakings. The results of the assessment show that community participation as a management tool is a good strategy that can be employed to manage the nypa resource and increase its value to the community. This would ultimately result in the protection not only of nypa but of the entire mangrove resource and preserve its function as a source of livelihood and a buffer against the elements including threats posed by climate change.
