A new video “Hope Amid the Rebuilding – ADB’s Marawi Support” showcases the impact of ADB’s $408 million in loans and grants to rebuilding Marawi City in southern Philippines, after an armed conflict in 2017 left the city in ruins and over 200,000 residents homeless.

ADB is helping Marawi not just in the essential rehabilitation and recovery work, but also in ensuring that the rebuilding process is carried out with future climate resilience and sustainability in mind. This build-back-better approach is being supported in part through a $5 million grant from the ADB-administered Urban Climate Resilience Trust Fund, which is currently being used to rebuild healthcare facilities and the water supply infrastructure.
