Typhoon Haiyan: ADB's Response

ADB is assisting the Philippines through grants and loans aimed at immediate relief and post-disaster reconstruction and rehabilitation of communities devastated by Typhoon Haiyan (known locally as Typhoon Yolanda). Funding will ensure the Philippine government is able to provide support in five priority areas: shelter and reconstruction; power restoration; livelihoods and employment; resettlement and psychosocial care; and environmental protection. ADB has also opened an office in Tacloban city, which will coordinate and monitor the use of funds, as well as advise local governments on the road to recovery.
