PEÑABLANCA, CAGAYAN – During its 1st Quarter CY 2021 meeting, the Cagayan Peace and Order Council (POC) unanimously agreed to create a Peace Negotiation Panel. Under EO No. 70, LGUs were tasked to establish a mechanism for local peace engagement, negotiation, or intervention that is nationally orchestrated, directed, and supervised while being locally implemented. As emphasized in the operational manual of Task Force ELCAC, the conduct of local peace engagements is essential in conflict-affected and conflict-vulnerable communities through community consultations and problem-solving sessions, as well as through local peace dialogues with Communist Terrorist Groups (CTGs).
