Post calamity response

A practical guide for post-calamity response: The Philippine experience

In a country frequently ravaged by typhoons and other natural calamities, vulnerable communities are often left crippled after the destruction, with only an ounce of hope to get through another day. More often, it is a struggle to help people get back on their feet.

The Guide aims to raise awareness on the economic and social benefits of using available resources in revitalizing communities and mitigating risks after a disaster. It presents concepts to remember when applying this approach, such as how to conduct rapid assessment after a calamity and how to coordinate with other development actors to ensure the success of the project, while citing real-life experiences from ILO projects implemented in the country.
