Philippines — Typhoon Mangkhut Site Assessment Region III and CAR (28 September 2018)
In response to the displacements caused by the Typhoon Mangkhut (local name: Ompong) that hit the northern Philippines on 15 September 2018, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) deployed its Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) programme in Regions I, II, III and the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR). The objective of the DTM is to collect information on the locations and needs of the population displaced by the Typhoon and to provide key information to support humanitarian assistance to the most affected populations. This report provides the main findings of the DTM assessments that were conducted in Region 3 and CAR from 26-27 September 2018. The assessments were conducted by field teams composed of IOM staff in coordination with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and relevant local government counterparts.
