Summary

About 90% of the IDPs belong to the Manobo ethnic group. This necessitates culturally appropriate interventions that respect the IP’s identity and culture. Tandag site has the most number of persons with special vulnerabilities. Around 60% of the IDPs in Marihatag are children, compared to Tandag’s (49%) and Haran’s (60%). Prolonged displacement with inadequate shelter increases IDPs’ vulnerability. IDPs in all sites report insufficient NFI assistance. Shelter, WASH and other communal facilities onsite still lack protection features such as privacy partitions, doors, locks and basic lighting. All sites have positive cases of water borne diseases. Without access to their primary sources of livelihood, IDPs experience increasing food insecurity.
