Local economic development

Programme for local economic development through enhanced governance and grassroots empowerment (PLEDGE): Project fact sheet

The International Labour Organization (ILO) implemented PLEDGE jointly with the Bangsamoro Development Agency (BDA) as its key partner. The programme seeks to make direct positive impact on local conflict affected communities.

The PLEDGE works with the government agencies and business communities and aligns its work with the other relevant development programmes being undertaken in conflict-affected areas in Mindanao, through the Mindanao Trust Fund administered by the World Bank, and other multilateral and bilateral agencies.
