Year 2014 was a year of significant progress in the peace process between the Government of the Philippines and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. It was the year of the momentous signing of the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro in March, the submission of the draft Bangsamoro Basic Law to Congress in September, and the launch of the Bangsamoro Development Plan (BDP) in November.

For the Mindanao Trust Fund, the highlight of the year was the launch of the BDP at the headquarters of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front in Camp Darapanan and subsequently in the special Philippine Development Forum in Davao City. The Plan is a comprehensive blueprint to guide development in the proposed Bangsamoro territory.

In addition to the Plan, the Mindanao Trust Fund has continued to expand support for community- driven development and reconstruction, community-enterprise development, and income-generation in conflict-affected areas in Mindanao. These programs now benefit close to 500,000 people.
