To kick-off the transformation of the Most Affected Area (MAA) in the Islamic City of Marawi particularly in the rebuilding of domicile for the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Region 10 under the Bangon Marawi Comprehensive Rehabilitation and Recovery Program, Sub-Committee on Land Resource Management of the Task Force Bangon Marawi (TFBM) spearheads the Kambisita II- Land, Property and Social Data Mapping in Marawi City.

The DENR-TFBM headed by Assistant Secretary for Mindanao, lawyer Michelle Angelica D. Go, created teams to be involved in the “Kambisita II” (Technical Data Gathering, Social Cartography and Geo-Tagging) in the area.

The DENR-TFBM team is composed of selected employees from the Community Environment and Natural Resources Offices and technical personnel from the regional office to focus on the actual involvement in the initial recovery of the most affected area (MAA). Personnel from the DENR Central Office and Region 12 are part of the team.

DENR 10 Regional Executive Director Arleigh J. Adorable on the other hand initiated a series of orientation and capability building exercises to be undertaken by the DENR-TFBM teams to equip and prepare personnel on the roles and responsibilities during the actual data gathering, lot survey and profiling of IDP’s prior to the final deployment in the area.

As of this writing, DENR-TFBM teams were dispatched inside the MAA for the on-going establishment of Ground Control Points using the Real Time Kinetic (RTK) for data gathering and sketching and marking of property boundaries and individual physical property documentation using the Go Pro camera for identification of claims by the IDPs.

Representatives from the Marawi City Assessor’s Office, Barangay Peace Action Teams (BPAT) from respective barangay and the National Housing Authority (NHA) from Region 12 also join the team.

Kambisita II was designed to capture, analyze, manage and preserve all the data from the ground including land, physical property/structure, burial sites and social data before the actual debris management will take place within the Most Affected Area.

In another development, the Task Force Bangon Marawi (TFBM) Information Management and Strategic Communications Support Group conducted a 2nd Strategic Communication (StratComm) Workshop on November 8-9, 2018 in Iligan City.

The activity was participated in by Information Officers from various National Government Agencies, this include the DENR 10 Regional Office and designated Information Officer of CENRO- Iligan City.

The communications training was aimed to enhance the capacity of government information officers to effectively and accurately communicate the activities of TFBM to constituents and stakeholders.

TFBM Field Office Manager Assistant Secretary Felix Castro during the event underscored the support of other government offices involved in the rehabilitation and rebuilding of Marawi City.

He also encouraged participants to organize a system of information sharing through the StratComm and share developments made by respective agencies to inform and update people on what the government is doing in the TFBM rehabilitation.

On the other hand, Philippine Information Agency Director General Harold E. Clavite thanked participants for responding to the call of the TFBM-StratComm Workshop to be able to ensure that involved working individuals are capacitated with the knowledge and skills required in delivering consistent and genuine information needed by the public and the affected communities.

He also added that TFBM StratComm, Sub-Committee requested each Department to designate two permanent representatives to attend to events and workshops like the StratComm.
