Decent work through local development in conflict areas

Inter-agency programme to nurture peace, security and decent work through local development in conflict areas of the Philippines (Bondoc Peninsula): Final project fact sheet

The International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) work together on a programme that aims to empower the people of Bondoc Peninsula who live amidst armed conflict and poverty. It covers four municipalities: Mulanay, San Narciso, Unisan, and Catanuan in Quezon Province.

The Programme works at the institutional and policy level as it supports the national peace agenda of the Philippines in resolving armed conflicts. It complements the peace country’s process efforts through development projects. The Programme puts stakeholder dialogue as its centerpiece in implementing local economic development that aim to harness agricultural productivity, skills training, enterprise development, market support, community-based disaster risks, management and maternal and child care. The ultimate goal is to improve human security in Bondoc Peninsula by addressing poverty and inequality.
