    07 January 2015

    Typhoon Haiyan killed 8,000 and affected nearly 16 million people across the Philippines. And while Tacloban City sustained the most destruction, other more remote places also suffered heavy damage. Lives and livelihoods, infrastructure and services were all lost on the vacation island of Coron. A year after Haiyan, the island's people are gradually restoring some of what was lost, and at the same time, learning new skills and ways to support their families.

  2. Haiyan: Building back better and greener

    07 November 2014

    Nearly 8,000 people were killed and nearly 15 million others were displaced when Typhoon Haiyan tore into The Philippines a year ago. In the aftermath of the country's worst-ever natural disaster, one of the most urgent challenges was restoring a way to make a living for the nearly 6 million people who were affected by the typhoon. Emergency employment programs were set up in the hardest hit areas. Now, a year after Haiyan, people have new job skills, and enterprises are beginning to emerge from the devastation.

  3. Haiyan: Planting the Seeds of the recovery

    07 November 2014

    A year after Typhoon Haiyan, known locally as "Yolanda" devastated parts of The Philippines, thousands of people whose lives depend on agriculture are still trying to cope. It wasn't only that farm fields cultivated for years were destroyed; farmers who knew only one way to provide for their families lost their livelihoods. But now there is new hope in the mountains and farm fields devastated by Haiyan. (Video in English with Closed Captions)
