IDPs CLAIM LAND STAKES IN MAA

Nineteen barangay chairmen along with 6,543 internally displaced persons from the Most Affected Area (MAA) of Marawi City manifested their will to secure their war-torn properties through the Social Cartography activity spearheaded by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Region 10 (DENR-10).

The alliance of BLGUs, Armed Forces of the Philippines, DENR and the acceptance of GIS-based land survey accelerated its completion, ahead of its March 31, 2019 deadline.

Also known as Kambisita, Social Cartography, is designed to gather data on land ownership inside the MAA. Claims of ownership on structures are also recorded.

As provided in Memorandum Circular No. 2017-003 by the Land Management Bureau, Kambisita adopts the drone-generated maps in identification of properties. The strategy not only expedites the process but also reduces human exposure to unstable structures inside the MAA.

Ground-truthing reveals a minute difference of only 0.10 millimeters between drone-generated map and actual survey.

Kambisita is one of the activities of Task Force Bangon Marawi lodged under DENR. (PSMadridano/PMD-DENR10). #TayoAngKalikasan
