The Bangsamoro Development Agency (BDA) shared experience on community development in the conflict-affected areas (CAAM) during the International Conference on Sharing Experience on Community Driven Development (CDD) Projects in Fragile Areas at River Living Place Hotel, Pattani, Thailand from June 18-19, 2019.
BDA executive director Engr. Windel Diangcalan and Ustadz Abdulrasheed Ambil, regional manager for Central Mindanao presented the story.
Said conference was co-hosted by the World Bank, in partnership with Korean Development Institute (KDI), the Southern Border Provinces Administrative Centre (SBPAC).
It aims to: i) facilitate a dialogue and exchange on CDD operations in sub-national conflict areas, and ii) assist the Royal Thai Government and local communities in the affected areas to apply conflict-sensitive CDD principles into their project design and future operations.
The BDA is invited to share experience on CDD implementation in the conflict affected areas in Mindanao.
Representatives from Myanmar, Indonesia (including Aceh), and Thailand (particularly Pattani Province) are invited to share their CDD experiences.
