Description In response to the serious effects of Typhoon Yolanda in the Visayas Region, the Government of Philippines (the Government) is providing immediate humanitarian and early recovery support to areas affected by the typhoon and organizing the early stages of post disaster needs assessment (PDNA) as the basis for recovery and reconstruction. ADB has established the Typhoon Yolanda Response Team to coordinate and cooperate with the Government and development partners for speedy response to Typhoon Yolanda. Immediate tasks of the Response Team are to (i) coordinate and carry out the PDNA together with the Government and other partners, (ii) explore all available options for rapid ADB response including through Asia Pacific Disaster Response Fund, and (iii) mobilize ADB assistance for rehabilitation and reconstruction. The Response Team will also submit daily briefings to ADB Management. Consistent with these efforts, a small-scale policy and advisory technical assistance (the TA) is proposed to (a) provide assistance to supplement the Government and development partner efforts to undertake the PDNA (i.e. to assess damages and losses, assess the economic, personal/household and poverty impacts of the disaster); and (b) support the Government and ADB to estimate recovery, reconstruction and future risk management needs, including investments and capacity development at the local government level, and (c) share knowledge on recovery and building back better.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The expected impact of the TA is strengthened recovery and reconstruction of areas impacted by Typhoon Yolanda. The outcome will be the PDNA to be informed by analysis and incorporated into Government recovery and reconstruction plans. The outputs will be: (i) DALA in selected sectors; (ii) economic, household/personal and poverty impact assessments; (iii) estimates prepared of needs for recovery, reconstruction and future risk management for consideration in existing and new projects, including a project to be proposed for funding by the Japan Fund for Poverty Reduction; (iv) knowledge and experience on post disaster recovery shared with Philippines recovery and reconstruction managers and experts, including practice and options identified for use in the Philippines context.
Impact Systematic recovery support and reconstruction of areas impacted by Typhoon Yolanda
