The Joint Needs Assessment aims to provide inputs for the design of the Mindanao Trust Fund-Reconstruction and Development Program (MTF-RDP), a program that would address the reconstruction and development needs of the conflict-affected areas (CAAs) of Mindanao, Philippines.
Four teams carried out the assessment: Local Governance and Institutions, Rural Development, Human Development and Finance and Private Sector Development teams. They carried out a two-phase work plan owing to security conditions in CAAs during the second quarter of 2004. The first phase involved Stakeholder Consultations held in Davao City and Metro Manila in April and May 2004. The second phase involved Field Visits to 19 of the 150 conflict-affected municipalities in August and September of 2004.
