Book 11: ENGAGING AND INVOLVING THE PEOPLE

A holistic approach in engaging the people of Marawi was introduced by the Philippine Army during the crisis that shook their City. An integrated central media-coordinating platform was launched in order to gather, screen, share and disseminate vital information to various units and the public. While the Army’s significant contribution in providing access to information and partnership with the media is documented, the establishment and development of collaboration and cooperation with the civil authorities and various civic organizations in addressing issues and concerns are highlighted.
