PAMANA ( PAyapa at MAsaganang PAmayanan ) is a national government’s program that extends development interventions to isolated, hard – to – reach, and conflict – affected communities, ensuring that they are not left behind.

The design of PAMANA is conflict sensitive and peace – promoting to ensure peace is maintained in the society.

Objectives

  1.  Increase livelihood and job opportunities in conflict – affected and vulnerable communities.
  2. Strengthen capacity of LGUs to pursue local peace and development plans and programs.
  3. Enable greater community participation in pursuing peace and development.

Strategy

The PAMANA framework is anchored on three strategic pillars:

1. Laying the foundation for Peace ( National level)

Interventions that support establishment of foundations for peace thru policy reforms and integration support to firmer rebels. It also includes governance/ convergence interventions, security guarantees and support to Internally Displaced Persons ( IDPs) and other vulnerable sectors, ( CHED, PhilHealth, DSWD, ARMM, NCIP, DAR, DENR )

2.   Building resilient Communities ( Community and Household level)

Interventions that promote the convergent delivery of goods and services focused on households and communities. A major component of this Pillar is the PAMANA Peace Development Fund, which is a block grant  of Php 300,000 per barangay provided to  targeted barangays every year for a period of three years to fund community – driven and peace building interventions, ( DSWD, DAR, DILG, DA )

3.   Regional and Sub regional development ( Connecting to markets)

Interventions that address regional development challenges, linking conflict – affected areas to markets and promoting job creation. ( DILG, DA, DENR, DOE – NEA, DPWH)
