- Picking up the pieces after Typhoon Ruby: turning waste into opportunity After Typhoon Ruby has left the Eastern Visayas region, local junkshops in Western Samar were busy unknowingly taking part in “early recovery”. By purchasing scrap metal removed from the debris, junkshops were injecting vital cash into the community, and providing essential resource recovery and cost-efficient debris clearing. The Asset Provision and Replacement Program under the UNDP Yolanda Response Project provides small businesses opportunities to turn waste materials into other resources that could be used again by the community. Since September 2014, UNDP has supported 26 junkshop operators by providing them with equipment which would allow them to improve the outputs of their shops. With this support, the junkshops are now able to buy more and different types of materials that they could process thereby improving their productivity and income. This program demonstrates UNDP’s support in boosting early recovery by helping small businesses identify and manage opportunities from the ‘wreckage’ left by disasters. The communities within the service area of the junkshops also benefit from using again materials that would have otherwise gone to waste. Yesterday AT 09:28 PM
