Part of our efforts to strengthen capacities of local partners working against violent extremism in Sulu and Lanao del Sur in southern Philippines, this brief explores the synergistic approach of the National Action Plan for Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism (NAP-P/CVE) which implies enabling local communities as key actors. Empowering local communities against violent extremism means making available practical opportunities and tailored interventions that would allow them to take control of their decisions, actions and resources in relation to P/CVE.

IAG's P/CVE program is supported by the Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund (GCERF).
