During the 1st National PCVE Summit held on November 8-9, 2022 in Quezon City, the DSWD was awarded a plaque of recognition and commendation from the DILG for its continuous support in ensuring the delivery of basic services to address poverty and other social protection concerns.

The summit was conducted to serve as a platform for convergence among PCVE implementers, including DSWD, towards sustaining gains, strengthening impact, and institutionalizing multi-stakeholder efforts on preventing and countering extremism.

The event was attended by National Government Agencies, stakeholders, Civil Society Organizations, and representatives of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao. ###
