In close coordination with the local government units and the DSWD, IOM Cotabato conducted an assessment mission on 17 September in Tandag City Sports Center where 2,886 IDPs remain displaced. Using the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) IOM was able to identify the most pressing needs and concerns of the displaced population. The dashboard includes a profile of displacement and a sector specific needs and concerns listing. A map displays the origin of the 2,886 IDPs (2,886 families) and the location of the assessed site. 99% of IDPs were of the Manobo ethnolinguistic group (1% were Cebuano). Among persons with vulnerabilities there were 37 breastfeeding mothers, 34 pregnant women and 17 male single-headed households.
