PAMANA is the government’s peace and development framework that aims to respond and strengthen peace building, reconstruction and development in conflict affected areas (CAAs) as well as sustain all on-going governance and development initiatives on the ground.  Its main strategy is to bring back government in these communities by ensuring that they benefit from improved delivery of basic social services and are served by responsive, transparent and accountable governments on resource allocation and utilization, alongside economic development efforts.

The Government is adopting a two-pronged approach: (1) negotiated political settlement of all armed conflict through peace negotiations; and (2) undertaking programs aimed at addressing the root causes of armed conflict through interventions on the ground to strengthen peace-building, reconstruction and development in conflict-vulnerable areas.

The PAMANA Program, as embodied in the Philippine Development Plan for 2011 to 2016, was launched as the National Government’s framework for intervention in conflict-vulnerable areas to complement the peace negotiation efforts in line with its commitment to address the causes of conflict and issues affecting the peace process. The Program will be implemented within the 5-year period from 2011 to 2016.

As the complementary track to the ongoing peace talks, PAMANA shall be implemented in areas which correspond to five (5) peace process lines.

PAMANA aims to contribute to lasting peace by achieving the following:

  1. Reduce poverty and vulnerability in conflict-affected areas through community infrastructure and focused delivery of social services;
  1. Improve governance through partnerships with national and local institutions, building capacities for governance, and enhancement of transparency and accountability mechanisms; and,
  1. Empower communities and strengthen their capacity to address issues of conflict and peace through activities that promote social cohesion.
