Over the past decade, community-based development (CBD) programs have become among the most common and widely-accepted methods for providing assistance to conflict-affected regions. These trends partly reflect an increased sensitivity to conflict dynamics and a commitment to extend the benefits of development to conflict-affected communities in order to help them rebuild infrastructure and improve livelihoods. In the Philippines, the government has adopted CBD as a core component of its strategy to address internal armed conflict, and nearly all of the major international development partners are implementing some for of CBD programming to support conflict-affected communities.
