CONVERGE Midline Assessment Project (The Asia Foundation)

The Asia Foundation (TAF) tapped ISEDI to conduct a Midline Assessment of the Project – Countering Violent Extremism through Responsive Government-Civil Society Engagement in the Philippines (CONVERGE) in nine project areas in the provinces of Basilan, Maguindanao, Zamboanga Sibugay, and Zamboanga City.

The CONVERGE project aims to: 1) build the capacity of local non-government organizations (NGOs), local government units (LGUs), and key stakeholders to identify and effectively address violent conflict and build community resilience; 2) address specific peace and community resilience needs in vulnerable local population segments through small grants to LGUs and local NGOs, and 3) increase coordination among LGUs, local NGOs, researchers, and key stakeholders to improve their ability to address violent conflict and strengthen community resilience sustainably through collaborative, self-financed initiatives, and programming.

Project Start Nov. 2021 and Ends May 2022
