Australia has been a strong supporter of peace and development in Mindanao for over 20 years, working with stakeholders in government, international partners, non-government and community organisations to promote peace, build resilience and reduce incidents of violence. 

Through our peacebuilding program, we provide support for the peace process between the Philippine Government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). This includes supporting the new Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM), and working towards long-term stability, security and development in the region’s conflict-affected areas.

Now in its second phase, our peacebuilding program will continue to support the formal peace process with focus on reducing violent conflict, reintegrating former combatants and supporting community development, particularly for women.
