2010 started with major challenges, but concluded on a note of optimism. The year was marked by a seven-month hiatus due to internal issues within the Bangsamoro Development Agency and ongoing concerns about the peace process between the Government of the Philippines (GPH) and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). However, in August 2010, Program Partnership Agreement 3 (PPA3) of the Mindanao Trust Fund-Reconstruction and Development Program was signed. PPA 3 expanded the program to an additional 100 villages and also introduced a community-driven reconstruction sub- component to assist communities affected by conflict and displacement with early recovery needs. Crucially, late 2010 saw the recommencement of peace talks between the GPH and MILF. Building on this positive development, the MTF partners agreed to extend the Facility until June 2017.
