THE WHOLE OF NATION APPROACH

On December 2018, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte issued Executive Order 70 (EO 70) synchronizing the government's instrumentalities of power with the capabilities of private sector stakeholders to end 50 years of deceit, lies and atrocities committed by communist terrorists against the Filipino people.

The National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict is the Whole-of-Nation Approach in defeating the local communist terrorist group and obtaining sustainable and inclusive peace throughout the Philippines.

GOOD GOVERNANCE

Recognizing good governance as the solution to communist terrorism, EO 70 involves all government agencies—from the national to the barangay level, with delineated roles and responsibilities in the Whole-of-Nation approach.

Unlike in the past when local chief executives left the insurgency problem solely to the AFP and the Philippine National Police (PNP), EO 70 is the collaboration of various Government agencies and their corresponding units at all levels, providing practical solutions to solve issues on the ground.

MULTI-PRONGED APPROACH

As the Whole-of-Nation Approach addresses the motivation for insurgency, there will be no reason for the communist terrorist group to agitate, organize and mobilize the vulnerable sectors and communities.

 

The NTF-ELCAC is composed of 12 operational clusters. As part of the Whole-of-Nation Approach, each cluster which is compromised of relevant government agencies committed to serving within its operating principle.

 

The NTF-ELCAC is headed by President Duterte, sitting as NTF Commander and Chairman; National Security Adviser Hermogenes C. Esperon Jr. as Vice-chairman; and Allen A. Capuyan, as Executive Director.
