Andanar opens Task Force Bangon Marawi forum, discusses government’s inter-agency rehab program

Aug 5, 2017

CONRAD HOTEL, MANILA –  “We are gathered here to present the reality of a place where its people immediately and rapidly fled from their homes because of the actual, unexpected occurrence of a violent terrorist invasion,” PCOO Secretary Martin Andanar said in his welcome remarks during the forum with Task Force Bangon Marawi, held Friday, August 4.
The Presidential Communications & Operations Office (PCOO) with Task Force Bangon Marawi, organized the forum to raise public awareness for the government’s commitment on rebuilding Marawi City.
The forum gave updates and discussed the comprehensive inter-agency effort to re-build Marawi and nearby localities.
“(W)e intend through this forum to make the public more seriously aware of the government’s work on the recovery, rehabilitation, and reconstruction of Marawi City,” Secretary Andanar added.
Marawi City sustained significant damage to its public infrastructure as well as private properties, and thousands of residents were displaced following weeks of armed conflict between government forces and the Maute terror group.
Due to the widespread destruction of properties and loss of lives, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte created last June the inter-agency Task Force Bangon Marawi (TFBM) through Administrative Order (AO) No. 3. Among the functions of Task Force Bangon Marawi is to develop and implement a comprehensive rehabilitation and recovery program based on a post-conflict needs assessment.
Composed of 23 various government agencies and offices, the AO directed Task Force members to form themselves into five sub-committees, namely, Reconstruction, Housing, Health and Social Welfare, Business and Livelihood, and Peace and Order for the effective implementation of President Duterte’s order.
Additional sub-committees were formed to serve as support groups. They were the Finance and Resource Mobilization sub-committee co-chaired by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) and the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), the Legal Support team led by the Department of National Defense (DND), and the Strategic Communications and Information Management group headed by the PCOO.
A series of video presentations were played to introduce Task Force Bangon Marawi and its sub-committee members. Also explained in the presentation were TFBM’s four priorities: reduction/elimination of hardships of internally displaced persons, improvement of systems that includes setting up of convenient checkpoints, working with the doables, and the conduct of sectoral dialogues.
Attended by government officials, private sector and other sectoral representatives, and members of the local and international media, the forum laid down the government’s plans and courses of actions designed to ensure the restoration of peace and order and business and livelihood activities in Marawi.
An open discussion was held and participated in by Task Force Bangon Marawi and local government officials led by Undersecretary Gloria Jumamil-Mercado of the Office of the Cabinet Secretary; Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Undersecretary Rafael Yabut; Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Undersecretary Hope Hervilla; Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Undersecretary Austere Panadero; DND Undersecretary Cesar Yano; DND Assistant Secretary Kristoffer James Purisima of the Office of Civil Defense; Marawi City Mayor Majul Usman Gandamra; and Ms. Mary Ann Adiong, representative of Lanao del Sur Vice Governor Mamintal Alonto Adiong Jr., as panelists.
Among the topics tackled during the panel discussion were the cash for work program, conditional cash transfer, and other relief operations.
Joining Secretary Andanar who spoke in the forum were Cabinet Secretary Leoncio Evasco Jr. and DSWD Secretary Judy Taguiwalo. PCO
