Community-based Dialogues Project
CBD Project Video Launched

In celebration of the International Human Rights Week, the project, “Community-based Dialogue Sessions on Human Rights Promotion and Protection between the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police, and Civil Society Organizations and Local Communities,” launched the CBD Project Video last December 15, 2021 during the CBD National Conference organized by the Project Steering Committee (PSC).

This 20-minute video production captures the history and milestones of this pioneering initiative in a short film from its inception in 2008 to the present.  For over a decade of implementing this project nationwide, and current focus to strengthen and institutionalize the CBD mechanism especially at the local level (region down to barangay), it is a privilege that, together with partners and stakeholders, we are able to share our learnings and experiences to interested parties and the public.

The CBD video is timely and significant in preserving the gains and successes of the project, and in planning next steps as it evolves over time.  We hope it serves as inspiration in pursuing human rights promotion and protection in an open, peaceful and democratic way. 

The CBD project is a partnership of the Commission on Human Rights (CHR), Philippine National Police (PNP), Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), Alternative Law Groups (ALG), and Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates (PAHRA), with support from the Hanns Seidel Foundation/Germany (HSF).
