The Procurement Team of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) invites Firms to bid for the services of Consultancy Firm for Video Production and Animation for the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL)
In support of the aspirations of the Bangsamoro people, the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP) has strongly supported the passage of the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL), which in a historic move, has been signed into law by President Duterte on July 26, 2018. The BOL, now officially called the Organic Law for the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, is considered as the conclusion of the final peace agreement between the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and the Philippine government in 2014. Through this law, the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) will be abolished, making way for the creation of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, home to Filipino Muslims yearning for self-determination. However, a plebiscite must first be conducted in the existing ARMM and in areas targeted for the inclusion in the envisioned Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in order to ratify the BOL.
OPAPP’s Communications and Public Affairs Unit’s endeavors to shape public perception and rally stakeholders to support the ratification of the BOL. A Joint Communications Campaign which was signed by both the Government and MILF is currently being executed via traditional and new media. As part of this campaign, OPAPP is also implementing an Information, Education and Communications (IEC) Campaign with the aim of providing substantial knowledge and information on the salient points of the BOL.
The UNDP-SPAN Programme is a partnership between the Philippine Government and UNDP in the Philippines and is intended to accelerate the utilization of the project funds of the Philippine government. It aims to contribute towards sustaining the gains of the Government’s peace process, and towards ensuring peace and security in conflict-affected areas by (a) accelerating the implementation of the Security and socio-economic aspects of the Normalization Annex of the GPH-MILF CAB, and (b) strengthening the enabling environment for peace, recovery and development.
