Executive Summary

USAID/Philippines, through its Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting for Improved Development (CLAimDev) activity, conducted a third-party performance evaluation of the Marawi Response Project (MRP), a cooperative agreement activity of USAID and Plan International USA.

The MRP Project Performance Evaluation highlighted lessons on social cohesion, micro, small, and medium enterprise (MSME), and the role of the local government units (LGUs) in the development that supported the efforts of the internally displaced persons (IDPs) and their host communities to thrive and improve their living conditions during the implementation of the MRP activities.

CLAimDev conducted an in-person learning dissemination event in Cagayan de Oro involving select federation leaders of the community solidarity groups (CSG) organized during the implementation of MRP. These CSGs are sectoral representatives of women, youth, farmers, and fisherfolks from the IDPs and host communities. The learning event featured sectoral conversations through the storytelling of their experiences with MRP and their vision for their communities.
