Philippines — Marawi Crisis Report 14 (23 July 2018)

03 Aug 2018 Philippines Round 14 Download

The Displacement Tracking Matrix in Lanao del Norte and Lanao del Sur was reactivated one year after the armed conflict erupted in Marawi City between the Philippine government and extremist groups. This armed struggle displaced 353,921 persons from Marawi City and neighboring
municipalities. As of 23 July 2018, 73% of the 77,170 families have returned to 72 barangays in Marawi City. This leaves more than 20,000 families open to the risks of long-term evacuation in sites that are not designed to shelter internally displaced persons for more than 12 months.
