Army, OPAPP set up Peace & Dev’t Community

DUMAGUETE CITY, Jan. 6 (PIA) -- The Army’s 302 Brigade has participated in setting up Peace and Development Community (PDC) this week at sitio Escaguit, Barangay Enrique Villanueva in Sibulan town.

Brigade’s Information Officer, Capt. Anacito Naz, said the army linked up with Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP) in the establishment of PDC in support for the government’s program on socio-economic development assistance to the members of Rebolusyonaryong Partido ng Manggagawa-Pilipinas/Revolutionary Proletarian Army/Alex Bongcayao Brigade (RPM-P/RPA/ABB) Tabano-Paduano Group.

The establishment of the PDC is one of the important steps in attaining a successful closure to the peace process with the RPM-P/RPA/ABB, said Naz.

The Philippine Army joined the team of the OPAPP and some local officials in the conduct of an ocular inspection of the area.

The activity aimed at determining the particular location of the PDC as well as to gather information or data that will contribute to the profiling of the socio-economic, political and security aspects of the proposed PDC.

The military official said, “Aside from being a major component in the closure of the peace agreement, the PDC also aims to contribute to lasting peace by reducing poverty and vulnerability through community infrastructure and focused delivery of social services.”

Likewise the PDC helps improve governance through partnerships with national and local institutions, enhance transparency and accountability mechanisms, empowerment of communities and strengthening of their capacity to address issues of peace through activities that ensure participation and inclusion.
