Localizing the peace agenda: Tulunan town has its own ‘peace process adviser’

How do you manage a troubled peace zone?

For Mayor Lani Sarillo Candolada of Tulunan, North Cotabato, the key is getting a ‘peace process adviser’ who can focus on the town’s peace agenda so as to address conflicts in the locality.

Candolada said they thought of the measure since 2007 in view of boundary conflicts and armed hostilities along the town’s borders usually involving the military and New People’s Army.

The conflict has been there for years and the local government’s response has been “never ending dialogue, dialogue, and dialogue,” she said.

The mayor spoke about Tulunan’s experience in her talk about localizing the peace agenda, one of the modules discussed during the Operation Peace Course (OPKors!) Peace building and Conflict Management training attended by junior officers of the 6th Infantry Division.

The training, the 14th for officers of the Eastern Mindanao Command of the armed forces, was held on October 19 to 23, at the Mindanao Training Resource Center here. Read on at MindaNews.com.
