PRESIDENTIAL Peace Adviser Jesus Dureza announced Wednesday, March 7, the creation of a task force that will address key concerns of the indigenous peoples (IP) and, ultimately, resolve ancestral domain issues and other root causes of insurgency.
In a speech during the Sitio and Governor’s Day celebration in South Cotabato, Dureza said the task force will be created through an executive order.
Another executive order has also been proposed to "provide full recognition and protection of the IP’s rights and welfare across the country."
