Social Assessment of Conflict-Affected Areas in Mindanao


THIS PUBLICATION highlights a number of findings from a social assessment of selected Mindanao communities. The Social Assessment was supported by the Post-Conflict Fund of the World Bank. It surveyed selected communities in Basilan, Sulu, Maguindanao, Sultan Kudarat, Davao del Norte and North Cotabato. Information used was gathered from the second half of 2001 up to the early months of 2002. The primary aim of the Social Assessment is to provide background information necessary for the design of effective medium-term development interventions in the complex setting of Mindanao, particularly in the areas affected by the eruption of conflict beginning in 2001.

The World Bank is supporting development initiatives in Mindanao primarily through SZOPAD Social Fund Project, Mindanao Rural Development Program, ARMM Social Fund, and KALAHI ( Kapit- Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan) Project.
