The program supports the claim of IPs of their ancestral domain and its sustainable development and works for mitigating the impact of conflict and disasters in affected communities. This also works for the representation of IPs, IDPs and basic sectors to and the mainstreaming of major advocacies such as Peace, DRR and Gender in local government planning and development processes.
3. Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Action (DRR-CA)
EcoWEB works for localizing response to global concerns about climate change and the increasing vulnerability of communities to both natural and human-made hazards. This program promotes Community-Managed Disaster Risk Reduction (CMDRR) in addressing disaster risks and initiating climate change adaptation measures. It works for mainstreaming DRR in local government land use and development planning and for community-based biodiversity conservation and rational utilization of natural resources.
4. Peace Action for Community Empowerment (PEACE)
EcoWEB advocates for Peace at the different levels of society by employing creative strategies such as Cinema for Peace and Historical Journey, among others. At the grassroots level, Peace Actions focus on transforming resource-based conflicts and raising people's awareness about peace concepts. The program also advocates for mainstreaming peace-building and conflict transformation concepts in local government development planning and programming.
