The report noted that the watershed reserve in Palawan was vulnerable to soil erosion, especially when its forest cover had been reduced due to its topography-narrow mountain ranges, steep runoff slopes and meandering rivers.
On one hand, soil erosion results in local problems such as less crop yield, increased cost of agricultural inputs, sparse vegetation and biodiversity (Owens and Collins 2006).
Soil erosion models can be distinguished as mechanistic (or process based) when they simulate the physical erosion processes by specific formulas or empirical when they calculate erosion based on regression of soil loss based on the physical properties of land and climate features [7, 8].
