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