After the five-month long armed conflict that ended in October 2017 between the Government of the Philippines and a local non-state armed group, over 325,000 civilians from Marawi City and other Lanao del Sur municipalities remain on the Government’s displacement registry.
The conflict has left large areas of Marawi City uninhabitable, affecting as many as 60,000 of the city’s 201,000 residents who will not be able to return for several months or years. Additionally, social services, utilities, housing, livelihoods and local economies remain severely impacted.
