  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)

  1. Training Haitians to re-build homes that will last

    26 June 2014

    The earthquake that hit Haiti on 12 January 2010 devastated entire communities leaving over a million homeless. The 16/6 project in Haiti aims to rebuild 16 neighbourhoods and re-house displaced people living in six camps set up after the disaster. Training people in earthquake-resistant construction has been a key part of the joint government-led project, which has brought together the International Labour Organization and other international organizations. The same approach is now being replicated in the Champs-de-Mars square in the centre of Port-au-Prince, Haiti's capital.
