A VISION FOR MARAWI: PEACEFUL, PROGRESSIVE, QUAKE-RESISTANT, CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTIVE
 
The renewed Marawi City to be built after casting away all the ruble and ruins of the ongoing armed conflict must have as its centerpiece the splendor of Muslim Filipinos’ faith, culture, and heritage.
 
Ensuring the continuity of this beauty through succeeding generations and centuries would be the goal of integrating climate change adaptive and quake-resistant engineering, technologies, architectural design, and urban planning into how the city is rebuilt.
 
Mosques, Madrasah schools, trading posts, culinary plazas, and rebuilt heritage homes would be ideal key components of that city center tapestry.
 
A majestic avenue linking the city center to the government and education hub—which I had early suggested be built in the western sector—would serve, not just as the city’s main mobility artery, but also as the distributor of the lifeblood of peace and progress to the rest of the city via a radial network of roads.
 
There are geo-hazards and climate change factors that would influence the future of Marawi. Among the factors to consider are earthquake faults, risks of extreme weather, flooding, upland landslides, and the sustainable health of Lake Lanao.
 
Finally, the defenses of peace and security must not only be police and military facilities and the personnel manning them. Heeding the exhortation of the preamble of the UNESCO Charter, the defenses of peace must be built in the minds, as well as in the hearts, of the residents of Marawi City and of Muslim Mindanao.
Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
