Local resource-based employment generation

Typhoon Bopha: Joint response for post-calamity interventions, local resource-based employment generation and livelihood recovery

The project was granted to the International Labour Organization (ILO) in May 2013, several months after Typhoon Bopha locally known as Pablo devastated the three municipalities of Davao Oriental, namely: Baganga, Cateel and Boston.

An immediate impact of the Project was its support to families through the wages earned by their member. The Project was also successful in capacitating not only the workers, but also the management of supported local organizations.
