CDD in Post-Conflict and Conflict-Affected | Areas: Experiences from East Asia


Th is paper briefly reviews the World Bank’s experience of using C DD in conflict -affected and post-conflict areas of the East Asia and Pacific region. 3 The region has been at the forefront of developing large- scale CDD programming including high profile ‘flagships’ such as the Kecamatan Development Program (KDP) in Indonesia an d the Kapitbisig Laban Sa Kahirapan -Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (KALAHI-CIDSS) project in the Philippines. As of the end of 200 7, CDD constituted 15 percent of the lending portfolio in East Asia compared with 10 percent globally (World Bank 2007a: 2). 4 Many of East Asia ’s CDD projects have operated— consciously or not — in areas affected by protracted violent conflict. CDD has also been used as an explicit mechanism for post-conflict recovery in Mindanao in the Philippines and in Timor- Leste, and for conflict victim reintegration in Aceh, Indonesia
