Post-disaster recovery and resilience in typhoon-affected areas in the Philippines

17 Dec 2013

Immediate response initiatives

Although the affected communities have already begun their own recovery efforts with the limited resources available, the magnitude of the disaster is so severe that it will take several years for them to recover fully. UNDP is working closely with the Government of the Philippines – at the national, provincial and local government levels – to support these recovery efforts along the following pillars:

I. Support to local governments for managing recovery

II. Livelihood restoration

III. Disaster risk reduction and Environmental Resilience

IV. National-level support to response systems and capacities
