Advancing Peace and Stability in Mindanao
September 12, 2017

Mindanao and the Sulu Archipelago comprise one-quarter of the Philippines’ total population and hold significant potential for economic growth; however, instability—brought about by poverty, marginalization and conflict—has impeded development in many areas throughout the region. USAID partners with national and local governments and civil society to address the root causes of these challenges.
