Small grants for recovery of affected communities17 Dec 2013
The scale of the typhoon's devastation has over-extended existing relief and recovery mechanisms across the country. Supporting communities--particularly poorer rural and coastal communities--to recover and rebuild in a resilient way will require a broad range of partnerships and delivery approaches.
The initiative aims to establish or re-establish/restore forest and coastal management programs with local communities and promote sustainable and resilient economic activities in typhoon-affected regions. Small grants amounting to a maximum of USD50,000 will support community initiatives for environmental and economic rehabilitation in the Typhoon-affected region.
Priority partners include vulnerable groups such as Indigenous Communities, poorer fishing and farming communities, and women’s and youth groups.
