The proposed Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao Social Fund for Peace and Development Project, herein after known as the ARMM Social Fund (ASF) Project, is an integral part of the Bank's response to the Government's "peace and development" policy for addressing the continuing armed conflict in Mindanao between Government forces and Muslim separatist groups, namely, the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF), and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). Given the complex historical roots of the conflict, the Government strongly believes that peace and development must be pursued simultaneously.
