From 1 January 2016 to 18 October 2016, 382,371 individuals fled their homes due to conflict. A total of 31 out of 34 provinces had recorded some level of forced displacement. Constrained humanitarian access hinders assessments, thus preventing verification of the full extent of displacement and undermining the provision of assistance and services. Displacement affects all individuals differently with needs, vulnerabilities and protection risks evolving over time due to exhaustion of coping mechanisms and only basic emergency assistance provided following initial displacement.
• About 68 per cent of the 148,000 still displaced by Typhoon Haima are in Region II.
• There are still 36,000 people in evacuation centres and another 112,000 people who are home-based.
• The number of damaged or destroyed houses has risen in excess of 46,000.
• Damages to agriculture and fishing have exceeded PhP646 million (US$14 million) in Cordillera Autonomous Region (CAR) and Region I • The Government is leading the humanitarian response and has formally declined the Humanitarian Coordinator’s offer of assistance.
Over 5,000 people are currently displaced and in need of humanitarian assistance. Partners are providing emergency assistance in camps and host communities.
Population movements are fluctuating as the front lines move, including people returning to their homes following improved security conditions in the immediate area.
Toxic smoke from a sulphur factory close to Qayyarah set alight by armed groups has caused between 600 and 800 people to seek medical assistance.
