Now, that the situation is restored to normal, SISBA together with the aid coming from ZABIDA and Verde Zamboanga Alliance represented by Ms. Cellyn Aron Verallo ADZU Faculty staff and the activity’s lead researcher, assisted the community to assess their own socio – demographic as well as the biophysical resources of the area so that they will be able to determine the status of their resources.
