A bioregion in jeopardy: the strategic challenge of amenity migration in Baguio, the Philippines.

This chapter synthesizes and extends three previous studies of amenity migration in the Baguio bioregion of central Luzon Island, the Philippines. It details the historical evolution of amenity migration and its impacts on the region's unique environment and culture. The chapter focuses on the innovative approach to public planning and decision making: multiple-scenario strategic analysis in a bioregional context.
