Kusog Mindanaw (Strong Mindanaw), is a Mindanao-wide forum that brings together political, business, religious and social leaders towards a consensus in policy and action on relevant issues for Mindanao peace and development. In Kusog Mindanaw, a platform for dialogue is in place as a bridge between Muslim Mindanao and the rest of the region in understanding issues of peace, development and security for the whole of Mindanao. The forum builds consensus of Mindanao stakeholders on the Mindanao agenda to push and advocate in Manila. IAG is the secretariat of Kusog Mindanaw since 2009.
