THE World Bank has proposed extending a $738,000 grant to fund a conflict and data analysis project for the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).

In a letter agreement dated Oct. 28, the World Bank, as administrator of the state and peace-building fund, proposed the grant in response to a financial assistant request made on behalf of International Alert.

The grant is financed out of a trust fund based on periodic contributions from donors. The World Bank in May said it started to manage the trust fund receiving foreign financing for BARMM development, with the Australian government and the European Union pledging contributions.

The Philippines Conflict Monitoring Project aims to provide conflict data and analysis for the development of policy responses.

This includes the development of a real-time online database for conflict incidents in selected areas of the region and the creation of a 10-year report compiling data and analysis on conflict patterns in the region.

An annual report on the findings of the analysis and a methodology paper on analyzing gender-based violence in the region will also be created.

The project will then move on to the development of thematic policy notes, providing technical assistance to local governments and academic partners in conflict monitoring, disseminating a violent conflict report, supporting a conflict resource center through data, and carrying out a communication campaign.

Finally, the program would require technical support for project management and the creation of a knowledge management system to share information. — Jenina P. Ibanez
