Background - Negros Panay
In support of the peace process closure track with the Rebolusyonaryong Partido ng Manggagawa ng Pilipinas–Revolutionary Proletarian Army–Alex Boncayao Brigade (RPMP-RPA-ABB) Tabara-Paduano Group (TPG), the Philippine Government has committed to provide various efforts under PAMANA to be implemented in different barangays in the 37 municipalities of Negros and Panay Island Provinces. These projects cover communities which the TPG believes should be recipients of peace dividends while the track for a political negotiated settlement is ongoing.
Support for these projects serve as peace dividends that will benefit not only the TPG members but also communities affected by armed conflict. It will facilitate processes for the eventual mainstreaming of TPG members in said communities where they are likely to be settled following the signing of the closure agreement.
