The Anibong community is an informal settlement of 2,600 families, located in a coastal area of northern Tacloban (The Philippines). The community was one of the hardest-hit by Super Typhoon Haiyan (November 8, 2013). Anibong residents have limited access to basic services and income-generating opportunities, and are highly exposed to hazards (both natural and man-made). CRS’ Anibong Resettlement Project (ARP) seeks to reverse the community’s situation, to support the most vulnerable households from Anibong to relocate to a safer area, with full access to basic services and livelihoods opportunities. The ARP has placed community participation at the foundation of the project, and is continuously providing Anibong residents opportunities to find their voices and learn how to make informed decisions.

In this session, the presenter will share the experience of implementing ICT4D in the project. These includes mobile data collection, development of custom database system, reporting, web hosting, data backup and security. This session will also include the use of Polinode, a tool that can analyze and visualize network data. It was used to build a graphic network that shows the preferences of family in terms of neighbors likelihood, that will be used by the Urban Planners to locate each family in the resettlement site.
