Infographic | 7 November 2014
On 8 November 2013, Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), one of the most powerful storms ever recorded to hit land, devastated a huge area of the Central Philippines. In response, ADB immediately designed and approved more than $900 million in assistance for relief, recovery, and reconstruction of Yolanda-hit areas. In addition to grants and loans, ongoing ADB projects for transport, conditional cash transfers, and agrarian reform were re-designed to help affected communities.
