Farm-to-market road rehabilitation

Making connections: Farm-to-market road rehabilitation in San Isidro, Leyte

The Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda)-damaged farm-to-market road in San Isidro, Leyte severely hampered the farmers’ agricultural activities. In response, the International Labour Organization (ILO) supported the Municipal Government of San Isidro in restoring the small-scale farmers’ ability to generate income, and in enhancing their food security.

The road rehabilitation supported the farming activities of small-scale rice and corn farmers as the sub-project allowed them to more easily access farm inputs and transport farm produce to the market.
