About PAyapa at MAsaganang PamayaNAn programme
The Philippine government works to enable communities in areas affected by and vulnerable to armed conflict to return to peaceful conditions where they can achieve their desired quality of life. The government is adopting a two-pronged approach to achieve just and lasting peace. These are the two prongs: (a) Track 1 seeks to bring all internal armed conflicts to a permanent and peaceful closure through negotiated political settlement and (b) the Complementary Track serves to address the root causes and impacts of all internal armed conflicts through development and good governance interventions focused on conflict-affected and conflict-vulnerable areas.
The complementary track is primarily pursued through the implementation of PAyapa at MAsaganang PamayaNAn (PAMANA) programme. As a framework, PAMANA aims to mainstream the peacebuilding agenda at various levels of governance, ensuring that conflict-sensitive and peace promoting approaches are adopted and implemented in government planning, budgeting, implementation and monitoring and evaluation systems and processes.
