Banaue Rice Terraces is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Philippines. But of late suffering from soil erosion and degradation, land abandonment, and lack of interest in farming. It’s a pity because the future generation might not see its wonders if the problems are not solved. Thus, the Banaue Rice Terraces Restoration Project was formed. This project targets to restore and conserve the biodiversity and cultural practices at the site. One component of the project is to generate widespread public awareness and participation to the cause, and one of the initiatives to support this is the Banaue International Music Composition Competition (BIMCC).
