Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The damage caused by the disaster is significantly beyond the capacity of the Philippine Government and its own agencies to provide the affected population with the necessary basic goods and services. The need for rapid support and immediate financial assistance from ADB would help alleviate current fiscal constraints faced by the Government. Given the magnitude of the disaster and current estimates of damages and limited fiscal capacities of the Government, financial assistance of $3 million is considered justified.
