Philippines

In the Philippines we help to lay the foundations for locally-owned, inclusive and sustainable peace and development.

We work with businesses, indigenous peoples and governments to help communities shape and benefit from economic development. We have pioneered a conflict incident monitoring system to understand the causes and costs of conflict. We research the impact that ‘shadow’ economies, like the trafficking of drugs, guns and people, have on conflict and development. We also support the peace negotiations between the government and rebel forces.

Our work is important because ethnic, political and economic violence continue to threaten and destabilise peace in the Philippines.

We have been working in the Philippines since 1988.
