PLEDGE project operations manual

The ILO, in partnership with the Bangsamoro Development Agency (BDA) has produced a Project Implementation Manual as guide in implementing local economic development and livelihood initiatives in conflict-affected areas.

The manual serves as a guiding document or step-by-step reference for BDA staff and project teams that will be tasked to work with local communities to establish, develop and sustain community-based enterprises. However, it can also be used by other organizations supporting local economic development and livelihood initiatives.

It is divided into two parts: Part 1 contains concepts, principles and policies that the BDA will adhere to as it supports communities in enterprise development. Part 2 contains tools and guidelines in actual enterprise project development -- from planning to implementation.

Funded by the Mindanao Trust Fund (MTF), PLEDGE has supported confidence and peace-building efforts through local economic development. The Mindanao Trust Fund is a multi-donor grant facility by the European Union, Sweden, Australia, Canada, United States, New Zealand and the World Bank.
