Background

Project Title

Strengthening National and Local Resilience to Risks of Violent Extremism in Southern Philippines (JAPAN-PVE Project)

 

Project Description

Relative to efforts to strengthen the national and local resilience to risks of violent extremism in the Philippines, UNDP through the Japan-PVE Project will assist the establishment of an information system that will enable planning, monitoring and evaluation of programs on socio-economic inclusion, empowerment and social cohesion in the province of Lanao del Sur which will contribute towards the development of local government approaches on recovery and rehabilitation.

DevLIVE+ is a system intended to collect, manage and visualize data required to assess risks and vulnerability of households, buildings and production areas to both natural and man-made hazards. The system is being deployed in 8 pilot municipalities in Lanao del Sur: Wao, Amai Manabilang, Tamparan, Butig, Piagapo, Saguiaran, Marantao and Balindong.

Under the Japan-PVE Program, DevLIVE+ was expanded to include another module that contains indicators on (a) information and communication; (b) interpersonal engagement; and (c) violence. Noting that the data being collected delves on sensitive and personal matters, it will be done through a self-administered survey method, in which randomly selected respondents coming from a certain age group and criteria of the abovementioned municipalities will be asked to independently answer the tablet-based survey. Responses will remain confidential and anonymous. The outcome will be a reliable basis that will provide a solid framework for the development of cohesive socio-economic plans and initiatives.
