The Mindanao Trust Fund-Reconstruction and Development Program (MTF-RDP) has endeavored to support post-conflict reconstruction and development in the Southern Philippines through small-scale, community driven projects, working with local organizations and stakeholder groups under the assumption that participatory and valueguided efforts to involve local community members in their own development projects will assist in sustaining conflict-mitigation and peace-building at the local level.

This report examines the effect the MTF-RDP community driven infrastructure projects, and specifically BDA's role therein, have had on communities, their relationship with one another, and their relationship with their LGU's under Phase 1 of the Program. This is done in the context of the MTF-RDP Result Framework's Intermediate Outcomes, using data from three surveys fielded in April to May 2009, eight small Case Studies, and an Organizational Review of the BDA.

MTF-RDP Objectives MTF-RDP Program Development Outcome Communities of conflict-affected areas, internally displaced people, and rebel returnees benefit from visible restoration of some basic services of their choice and sustained by more accountable Local Government Units (LGUs). Intermediate Objectives of the MTF-RDP are:

  • Communities of conflict-affected areas, internally displaced people, and rebel returnees have satisfactorily decided on, planned and implemented sub-projects of their choice.
  • LGU capacity is improved for project planning, resolving conflicts, project implementation and seeking resources for subprojects in conflict-affected communities.
  • Local implementing partners, including the Bangsamoro Development Agency (BDA), have achieved sufficient management capacity to work with local government units (LGUs) and local development groups in reconstruction & development activities.
