The project's stated objective is to "improve access of targeted communities in conflict-affected areasin Mindanao to basic socio-economic infrastructure and alternative learning system." The project will fund small infrastructure sub-projects. According to World Bank documents:
"Small parcels of lands will be required for socioeconomic infrastructure subprojects. Lands required for a community small-scale socioeconomic infrastructure sub-project under MTFRDP/2, similar to the previous phase, will most likely consist of government lands free of claims or encroachments, or of lands voluntarily donated by community members."
The project location will be in the six camps of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front -- namely, Maguindanao, North Cotabato, Lanao del Sur, and Lanao del Norte -- which are home to Moros or Muslims, and Lumads or indigenous peoples.
