Panag-ambit is a community consultation which aims to let the community decide for themselves on what they want, what assistances they need, and let them determine what are those needs that should be prioritized.

Atty. Jonah Margarette F. Presto, Peace 911 Focal Person welcomed all the participants. She explained to them what is Panag-ambit and remarked to take advantage of the said activity so that the City Government of Davao will be able to deliver the services that are needed in their barangay. She hoped that through this activity, the residents and the government will be able to work together for the development and sustainability of peace in their community.

The participants, grouped by sector, were assigned the task of identifying and listing issues and concerns that have been addressed by Peace 911. They were then tasked with identifying the current issues and concerns within their community that require attention. Moreover, the participants from each sector collaborated to prioritize the issues and concerns that need immediate resolution.

Following the group activity, representatives from each group presented their output. Participants highlighted that the primary issue successfully addressed by Peace 911 was insurgency. They conveyed their gratitude for the restored peace within their community. The representatives also outlined their ongoing issues and concerns, along with the prioritization of problems that need to be addressed.

Finally, each group representative underwent an interview conducted by Peace 911. This interview aimed to discern the successes and challenges of Peace 911’s peacebuilding activities, as perceived through the experiences and observations of the residents.

Representatives from Barangay Councils thanked the Peace 911 for conducting the Panag-ambit activity in their barangays. They also thanked the residents who attended for actively participating in the said activity. They hoped that the conduct of the Panag-ambit will have a big impact in the peace and order of their community.
