This protection assessment by UNITAR/UNOSAT was done based on a request from UNOCHA and provides an updated overview of evacuation areas in Zamboanga City, Philippines, as of 21 September 2013 using imagery collected by the WorldView-1 satellite. Due to the incidents occurring in some areas of Zamboanga City, evacuation centers were created displaced persons from affected barangays of the city to guarantee their security. A total of 34 evacuation areas were located within the reviewed area using data from UNHCR and the Philippines Government. The locations of these features and IDP areas are detailed in Map 1. The major outdoor evacuation areas were found in San Jose Cawa Cawa (Joaquin Enriquez Memorial Sport Complex) which contains 1,174 camp structures and an additional area of IDPs along the coastline (see Figure 1). This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT.
