The Marawi siege that began in the latter part of May 2017 has caused severe destruction of facilities and more importantly loss of livelihoods and disruption in the food supply chain.
FAO is providing technical expertise and assistance to contribute to the achievement of the full recovery and rehabilitation process. FAO developed a document entitled FAO Response to Marawi and Affected Municipalities in Lanao del Sur, Emergency Assistance Linked to Short to Medium-term Recovery and Rehabilitation of the Agriculture and Fisheries Sector and the Food Supply Chain as basis for mobilizing external resources, including partnerships with other organizations to help in the achievement of the objectives to support Marawi.
FAO is also supporting the Task Force Bangon Marawi (TFBM) through its collaboration with DA and MinDA which are both members of the Sub Committee on Business and Livelihoods, in formulating the recovery and rehabilitation plan for agriculture and fisheries and the restoration of the food supply chain. The inter-agency task force was created by the President under Administrative Order no. 3, dated June 28, 2017 to work on the recovery, reconstruction and rehabilitation of Marawi City and other affected areas. Among its functions is the formulation and implementation of a comprehensive rehabilitation and recovery program based on a post-conflict assessment.
