Operations

Support for Returnees and other Conflict-Affected Households in Central Mindanao, and National Capacity Development in Disaster Preparedness and Response


This Operation has expired on 31 March 2015.

Forty years of conflict have claimed 150,000 lives and displaced 2 million people in Mindanao; the latest escalation 2008/09 displaced 700,000 people in Central Mindanao, damaged infrastructure and undermined livelihoods. Most displaced people have returned to their homes but recovery needs persist and subsequent shocks such as flooding and violent feuds have exacerbated vulnerabilities such as food insecurity. Peace negotiations have stalled and are unlikely to be concluded in the next two years. This operation addresses the assessed needs using a flexible approach to respond to potential changes.
