The Bangsamoro government has rolled out the Bangsamoro Regional Action Plan on Women, Peace, and Security (BRAPWPS) 2023-2028 in Sulu province.

The six-year plan aims to address the specific needs and concerns of women in conflict-affected areas in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM), said the Bangsamoro Women Commission (BWC), the main proponent of the plan in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and UN Women.

BWC Chairperson Bainon G. Karon said the BWC remains dedicated to Sulu’s women, working on tailored initiatives to tackle the unique challenges they face in the province.

“The Bangsamoro Women Commission continues its resolute commitment to the women of Sulu. Our ongoing efforts are focused on creating meaningful initiatives that address the specific challenges faced by women in the province,” Karon said.

To ensure the successful implementation of the program, the Commission has collaborated with various stakeholders, including the local government units, development partners, civil society organizations, and the security sector.

The launch of the BRAPWPS 2023-2028 in Sulu marked a significant milestone in ensuring that the voices and experiences of women are heard and considered in peace and development efforts.
